If you look at the book as O.T. lecture notes, it's not really extraordinary e.g. King Soloman is the author and it's probably written at the end years of the King. If you look for some verse-by-verse commentaries, sorry this is not the book you're looking for. However, if you want application of Ecclesiastes in our times and in your very own life, THIS IS DEFINITELY THE BOOK FOR YOU. Wiersbe discusses why wealth, work, wisdom and enjoyment can't bring us satisfication and draws to the conclusion that only God can satisfy us since God has already put the concept of eternity in our heart and nothing or nobody else can bring us eternity except GOD. This is the book teach you how to *be satisfied*. Bible is not an out-of-date literature; it's our life menu. if you enjoy this book, go buy other's *Be* books from Wiersbe.

I've enjoyed and found useful other books from this series, but when it comes to Ecclesiastes, I think Wiersbe may be missing something.

Much of Christianity is enamored with "positive thinking" and putting the best "Yes, but Jesus Loves Us" spin they can on everything.

Ecclesiastes is a great antidote to that attitude... which may be exactly why so few pastors preach the book and so many commentators have difficulty with it.

The book is not encouraging by any stretch of the imagination, and yet, Wiersbe wants to read it that way.

His understanding of the text is fine, the book provides much useful application, but it fails to enter the mindset of the writer... and if you can't see things from the author's perspective, you're probably going to miss some things.

It's a good, short commentary, but I can only recommend it with reservations. Balance it with something a bit less upbeat.

This is an excellent commentary on Ecclesiastes. I've always enjoyed Wiersbe's works and this was no exception. If there was one book that I would recommend on Ecclesiastes it would be Living on the Ragged Edge by Charles Swindoll.

I have never been able to get into Ecclesiastes and stick it out to the end. This commentary, however, has opened up the meaning of the book in such a logical way. One of the best books I have ever read.

This commentary is EXCELLENT and goes into A LOT of detail on the book of Ecclesiastes. There is only one reason I don't give it 5 stars. That reason is: In my Bible school we looked to understand each book of the Bible from the original readers perspective. What would Ecclesiastes have meant to the Israelite people who read these words from Solomon for the very first time. I don't remember too much of that coming out in this book.

But Wiersbe's insight and detail on each verse of Ecclesiastes was very insightful and challenging. He really brings about where real satisfaction comes from. It was very beneficial in my study of Ecclesiastes.
I do recommend this book!

Excellent! This is the first book I read from Wiersbe’s Be series. It had many scripture references that helped me to better understand the life of King Solomon. The book also had follow-up questions at the end of each chapter which was useful in a group discussion. A good read for a person reading the bible for the first time.

Question: Is life worth living? The answer is Yes and Be Satisfied!

It is rare to find such a well balanced explanation backed so completely on scripture. And it is written in such a simplistic, easy to understand way. It certainly makes it easy to apply these principles and teachings to present day life. A MUST READ even if you're not a biblical scholar.

I absolutely love Warren Wiersbe's way of commentating on the books of the Bible. He is clear and concise and very easy for the average lay person to understand. I usually am able to read his whole book and better understand that book of the Bible.
