A Survey of Ecclesiastes
The book of Ecclesiastes, as short as it is, is one of the most mysterious works in the Bible. It looms before us as the sphinx of Hebrew literature, with its knotty, unresolved struggles intermingling with its unanswered arguments and cynical observations of life. All this is compounded by the fact that the writer, Solomon, referred to himself throughout the book as “the Preacher.” Its content marks a decided departure from the orthodox, a bold and even imprudent alienation from Jehovah . . . and yet in a few verses, we read strong words in defense of a life devoted to the living Lord. In this study, we’ll attempt to unravel the riddle and understand the message of Ecclesiastes.
