Ecclesiastes has much to say to any thinking person who seriously questions the meaning and purpose of life in a universe that has little or no place for the God who created it. The writer leaves no stone unturned as he pursues his quest. Philosophy, power, politics, pleasure, and education are all carefully explored. Here is a man who appears to have everything yet discovers that he has nothing. Ecclesiastes is a book for modern man to read and digest resonating with the sense of despair felt by many trapped in a materialistic world where time is rapidly running out yet continually offering glimpses of hope, before unveiling the true meaning of life that can only be found in a living relationship with God.
