Synopsis: The Joy of Living study on Ecclesiastes is a 9-lesson spiral-bound series, revised and updated from the original loose-leaf series. The commentary was written by Robert S. Ricker. The daily study questions were newly developed by Kathy Rowland. The book of Ecclesiastes was written by the "Teacher", whom many Bible scholars believe to be King Solomon. The Teacher takes stock of the world as he has experienced it, and discovers that human wisdom, even that of a godly person, has limits: It cannot find out the larger purposes of God or the ultimate meaning of man's existence. Although man is in mad pursuit of one thing and then another, these things all turn out to be meaningless. In contrast, a life centered on God takes on purpose and meaning. With God's presence, all of life and God's good gifts to us are to be gratefully received, used, and enjoyed to the full.
Joy of Living courses are suitable for both formal and informal meetings, as well as for personal study. Each lesson contains a commentary and a week s worth of personal application and study questions, leading readers to discover fresh insights into God s Word. Historical background and maps are included.
