I have read Ecclesiastes several times over the past weeks in search of a more balanced life. As I mentioned in a previous post, I no longer see this book as the rantings of a depressed man. Ecclesiastes represents the boundaries of humanity tested thoroughly. Although the report of what is available to us this side of heaven is often discouraging, even troubling, the author has found goodness in balanced simplicity nonetheless.
As I make my next read through Ecclesiastes, I intend to blog my thought process along the way, chapter by chapter. For those of you who’d prefer not to get bombarded with my amateur commentary, I’ll be inserting other posts of the usual variety as I go.
