Free eBook $13 A Life Well Lived by Tommy Nelson
Solomon went through this same quest for meaning in 1000 B.C. The Book of Ecclesiastes is as close as the Bible gets to pure philosophy. But it’s different from most philosophy in that it is not so much an inquiry of one man’s mind as it is God’s declaration of the meaning of life.
In the desire and quest to make sense of the world and our existence, three great sirens have lured men and women into a lull with the empty promise to make their lives meaningful. The great king of Israel, Solomon, though the wisest man, was not immune to their song. But at the end of his life, Solomon, in all of his God-given wisdom, stopped to contemplate on all that competed for his attention. He wrote his conclusions in the Book of Ecclesiastes. Tommy Nelson continues his study of Solomon’s writings by taking an in-depth look at Ecclesiastes. In a world such as ours, where the search for meaning and purpose propels mankind to try everything under the sun, Solomon’s conclusions ring louder than ever for a people who need answers more than ever.
