Joy at the End of the Tether

The Inscrutable Wisdom of Ecclesiastes

"Most Christians view the book of Ecclesiastes as an enigma, a puzzle from which we might draw a few aphorisms but little else. Douglas Wilson's fresh, lucid treatment of this wonderful book enables us to see that its message is not a confused riddle but an incisive indictment of the 'wisdom of this world.' We learn that what we call modernity is simply a term for men sinning in the old ways with new toys and tools. There is truly nothing new 'under the sun;' man's problems today are exactly what they have been since the Fall. And the answer to man's problem is just as old, yet forever new—'the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.' "
— Steve Wilkins
