Ecclesiastes is one of the least studied and understood books of the Bible.That is unfortunate because it is rich with wisdom. At first it can seem to be a series of unrelated or even contradictory statements but in fact it is logical and sequential. It is packed with practical advice for making sense of life. It is intended to teach us wisdom and who would not want to be wise?
As I read, studied and prayed, I came to love the subject. The things I discovered in Ecclesiastes were so true and dare I say, beautiful and relevant that I felt compelled to share them with my children and grandchildren.
The book of Ecclesiastes is about as close as the Bible will come to answering many of the questions of life here on earth. Notice I said Ecclesiastes is as close as it comes. Many of our questions will not be answered while we remain in the flesh. This book deals with the writer's frustration with life.He asks and answers many questions about life, wisdom, pleasure, toil, folly, and many other subjects.
