Where Wisdom is Found: Christ in Ecclesiastes

J. V. Fesko

Reformation Heritage Books, 2010, 160pp., paperback, $12 / £8.99

We may read the book of Ecclesiastes and be impressed by its beauty and profundity while feeling that the substance remains well beyond us. We confess that it is the Word of God, and that we don’t know what it means. In this book our author deals with Ecclesiastes as a gateway into wisdom literature, exhorting us not to mistake observations for instructions, nor patterns for promises, nor to miss Christ in this portion of the Bible. Working through the book, he gives us an insight into the emptiness of life as observed by the Preacher, and the fullness of Christ, the wisdom of God, in answering that vanity. It is a simple but fruitful technique, helping us to get beyond mere moralising and to grips with life in a fallen world as men and women looking to Jesus.
