New Study:  Ecclesiastes

Bob Albretsen continues to lead us in our new study on the book of Ecclesiastes.  We’ll be using the study guide, Ecclesiastes, from the NavPress.  From the publisher:

“We want our lives to have meaning, so we try to find significance through worldly pursuits. We may even feel satisfied for a time. But when those moments fade—and they always do—the emptiness returns. As long as we view life from a human perspective, nothing really matters. That’s why it’s easy to relate to the author of Ecclesiastes when he declares everything to be meaningless. His journey is our journey.

“The book of Ecclesiastes will teach you how to live in an unjust world dedicated to the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, and power. You’ll see that trying to find satisfaction through pleasure, work, or intellect is fruitless—but that life with God at the center is fulfilling. By examining the text’s meanings and interpretations, you will discover that Ecclesiastes points us toward Jesus, the ultimate answer to the emptiness we all experience.”

Steve Robey has additional copies available at a price of $10.  More information about the book can be found at: https://www.navpress.com/p/ecclesiastes/9781615217359
