Exegetically moving through the book of Ecclesiastes, Robert Buchanan examines the authorship, composition, literary devices, canonicity, and scope of the text. Originally delivered in as a series of sermons, this collection of nineteen sermons walks expositionally chapter-by-chapter through the text.

To an expositor of scholarly habits, exegetical skill, and given to historical criticism, the Book of Ecclesiastes presents a noble field for the exercise of all these accomplishments. The style is pointed and clear; treasures of varied information are brought to the illustration of the text; while the mode in which the principles of Christian morality are brought out in it, is such as to warrant the belief that it will be extensively useful.

The style is animated and generally chaste, and the spirit of the work is excellent.
