The Teacher of Ecclesiastes is a wise man who had everything and found he had nothing. His reflections are honest, brilliant, relentless, haunting, shocking and sometimes depressing.
Ecclesiastes surprises people. That’s partly because it says things you don’t expect to hear from the Bible. Yet it resonates with people as well. Ecclesiastes reveals our dissatisfaction with life and creates a longing in us for something more than life under the sun.
