Has life really any meaning? Our time in this world is comparatively short. The earthly stage remains, but different actors are constantly passing across it. Generations come and go, but nothing is ultimately different.
This is how many people see life, and Solomon identifies with them. But is life really pointless? If not, what is its true meaning? The message of Ecclesiastes is that life is not worth living unless we live it for God. The Song of Solomon teaches us that living fo the Lord means loving him.
Stuart Olyott's easy to read commentary on Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon. Both books of the Bible that are overlooked and misunderstood, Olyott helps the reader see the true meaning of each book while keeping the commentary simple and short. Each chapter leaves you yearning to know Christ better. This book is a great enhancement to personal Bible study, as are the other commentaries by Olyott in our library.
