Through this book, I get a profound and deeper understanding of the biblical book, Ecclesiastes. As I've never known him before, I get a clearer picture of King Solomon-- a king, philosopher, philanderer. This book is really full of wisdom. I finally grasp the meaning of life.
David Jeremiah wrote this study of Ecclesiastes as a 31 day devotional. It follows the wisest man, Solomon, on his quest for meaning in life. He tries everything 'under the sun', and finds it all vanity. The final chapter looks at Solomon's conclusion found in the final verses of this book of the Bible: "Fear God and keep his commandments, For this is man's all.For God will bring every work into judgement,Including every secret thing,Whether good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13-14This was a wonderf...
David Jeremiah opens the readers eyes to the reality of life. Through the writing of King Solomon, you learn of what really matter in life and how trying to find fulfillment out of tangible things is vanity. I would truly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to figure out their purpose in life.
Wonderful readingDr.Jeremiah never disappoints. We used it as a bible study. Loved it. Proves you can have everythimg you ever wanted but unless you know God those things will not fullfill you.
Es un estudio de eclesiastes, este es un de mis libros favoritos sobre libros de la Biblia , la claridad al escribir de Jeremiah es impresionante.
Imagine a mediocre sermon series on the book of Ecclesiastes, the kind where the pastor repeats what the text already says in a variety of different ways to help you "get it." It is a sermon series that comes complete with a variety of illustrations (some excellent, some historical, some anecdotal from the pastor's own life) and a lot of validation of existing evangelical beliefs (some of which strain the original Biblical text to its limits). Now imagine that, rather than delivering this sermon...
I have read Ecclesiastes many times, thinking that it was the result of an old man’s cynicism with life in contrast to Proverbs and Song of Solomon. However, I’ve found myself “searching for heaven on earth,” yearning for the ideal, always looking, restless—and had already come to the conclusion that God “had planted eternity in our hearts,” thus our fight with time (C.S. Lewis says the reason we struggle with time is that we were created for eternity.). In addition, I’ve struggled with finding
If you are one who searches for heaven on Earth, you might just grab this book after reading its cover. But for me, I saw my pastor holding it. However, YES, I, too, have been searching for heaven on earth. This book did not give me the answer to that. There's not a one-million-dollar answer to where is heaven on earth. But it proved that there is one God who can give us not just a life--a life of abundance as John 10:10 proves--a life of heaven on earth.
read, interrsting perspective on c comparing what we value as important in life vs what the bible says
Pastor David Jeremiah's take on the book of Eclesiastes is captivating. A Good Read. :)
This is a great book to read on chapter at a time. Lots to digest.
Excellent devotional! Sound wisdom and godly counsel from the one who lived it - and an Author who has a good grasp of how to interpret it! Great read!
