To Love This Earthly Life

: Pathways Through Ecclesiastes
Product Description

To Love this Earthly Life, reflections on the book of Ecclesiastes, is the latest work by Trappist monk Michael Casey, whose biblical studies bridge the divide between scholarly analysis and prayerful reflection. The title may surprise readers, who regard the author Qoheleth as a gloomy fellow. But as Fr. Casey notes, "His central point is, quite simply: Make the most of your life as it is, because it is the only one you will ever have. . . . If we cannot love the reality we see, any love we profess toward what is unseen must be considered delusional. . . . So, let's get on with it." Examining such themes as vanity, God, wisdom, time, and carpe diem, Fr. Casey shows how they all build to a constant message of hope by living in the present.
