Ecclesiastes is a book filled with good news for those struggling to make sense of what is happening in life. Why does man madly pursue one thing and then another without meaning? True joy comes from the Lord himself, and for the one who has learned to fear God and keep his commandments, all of life holds purpose and delight. In Coping with Change, noted theologian Walter Kaiser mines the riches of Ecclesiastes to reveal the source of true joy.

"Perhaps the most helpful feature of Kaiser's treatment is that he believes the book has a discernible plan and a traceable argument and that Qoheleth was not a cynical old goat who drank Drano or vinegar for breakfast. That makes a difference in the way you understand Ecclesiastes. Buy your own copy and find out how." - Dale Ralph Davis ~ Well respected author and Bible expositor
