Westminster John Knox Press Ecclesiastes: Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching

Deemed by some as the strangest book in teh canon, Ecclesiastes is an unusual blend of autobiographical references, philosophical musings, and proverbial instructions, all probing the seemingly pointlessness of human striving.

Ecclesiastes explores such themes as the frailty of human experience and the ominpresence of death, the bond of fellowship and the bankruptcy of heroism, the importance of joy and the inscrutable will of God."All is vanity [futility]," the sage scholar concludes at the end of his quest for wisdom.

Explaining the text as it engages our own culture's era of questioning, William Brown's commentary succeeds in discerning redemptive truth and the ambiguity and despair of Ecclesiastes' anguished discourse.
