Great Group Study Nov 23, 2006
The Ecclesiastes study which is very much like the other Life Guide Bible Studies are great for groups. They provide many questions that will generate discussions that really provided insight into my life. I am pretty sure that doing a group Bible Study on Ecclesiastes without a guide is difficult (I've tried). It is good to see that there are good tools to help those of us who are not seminary graduates.
Great guide to the book of Ecclesiastes Aug 11, 2004
I found Ecclesiastes: Chasing After Meaning, to be a very helpful tool in understanding the book of Ecclesiastes. The thought provoking questions it asks really helped me come to better overall conclusions. This is because it forces you to come up with the answers, instead of just laying them out for you to read and eventually forget. That's the mistake I believe the first reviewer made, they simply looked at the book in the wrong way. But don't be mistaken, this is an excellent guide to the book Ecclesiastes, especially if you plan on discussing Ecclesiastes in a group setting.
Not Very Helpful Sep 18, 2003
I did not find this book to be very helpful in my study of Ecclesiastes. It really contains no exposition on these difficult verses. It does, however, include questions that are meant to be thought provoking. These questions may be helpful to insight discussion in a class but really will not add to your understanding of the book of Ecclesiastes.
