Editorial Reviews

Review

"A pastorally poetic guide to the endlessly 'wild and strange wonder called Ecclesiastes'. . . . Be sure to reflect on the weighty questions that Zack provides after each chapter. They offer the reader a timely opportunity to respond to the author's thoughtful observations of an ultimately hopeful text." --Donald C. Guthrie, Director of the PhD (Educational Studies), Professor of Educational Ministries, The Jeanette L. Hsieh Chair of Educational Leadership, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

The many Bible buffs with a special fondness for Ecclesiastes will certainly enjoy Eswine's brand-new exploration of its themes -- latest in P&R's "Gospel According to the Old Testament" series. Eswine does a particularly brilliant job of unifying this challenging book -- and connecting it to teachings in the rest of Scripture, particularly those in the New Testament and the life of Christ. His principal thrust: the Preacher's message is that there isn't really any "gain" in this place "under the sun" except in a few humble activities such as work, food and family -- that these were God's gifts in Eden, and we should be content with them in this life too. I really enjoyed this book and found it exceptionally helpful in many of the Preacher's more difficult passages. Now if we could just find someone to do Song of Solomon for this series!

Many Christians struggle to read the Old Testament, getting lost in a sea of genealogies and laws, drawing facts and moralistic applications but failing to see God's grand story of redemption unveiling at every turn. "The Gospel According to the Old Testament" series from P&R Publishing is designed to help believers see Christ and the gospel in the Old Testament. Written for pastors and laypeople, the series has the following stated aims:

to lay out the pervasiveness of the revelation of Christ in the Old Testament
to promote a Christ-centered reading of the Old Testament
to encourage Christ-centered preaching and teaching from the Old Testament

Sometimes people joke that Solomon must have been "emo" when he wrote Ecclesiastes. And I at times have semi-jokingly said that I love Ecclesiastes because it's so realistically pessimistic and so depressing. Everyone around me seems so happy-dappy all the time, but I'm often afflicted by a sense of the meaningless of it all, even as a Christian. In those moments I often run to Ecclesiastes to find camaraderie in these Scriptures, without which I'd seriously think something is wrong with me. But I myself had failed to see the deeper significance of Ecclesiastes; I've been reading the Old Testament through a redemptive-historic lens for years, but I've never really been able to see the gospel in the book of Ecclesiastes. This is why I was particularly excited about this latest volume in the GAOT series, Recovering Eden. Perhaps you don't connect to Ecclesiastes at all; or maybe, you connect with the darkness of it but are wondering where the light is.

For both groups, Eswine shows that Ecclesiastes has something to say.

I could have dropped this book in a bucket of highlighter ink, and it wouldn't look much different than it does now. Such a spectacular book. Zack Eswine has a pastor's heart and a preacher's clarity, and this book is incredible. The series as a whole is remarkably good, but this book stands out even among excellent company.

Maybe the best book in this series. Everyone of the is a gem but this one grabbed hold of me and brought a reality to faith that is so often lacking in books and sermons full of platitudes and wishful thinking. This book made me sigh in relief as I came to the understanding that God is really really real and wants us to be as well. Also the sufficiency of the gospel for this world we live in was powerfully portrayed.
