Publisher's Description

"What does it take to find satisfaction? Will I ever find something in life that’s better than this?"

 
Most people live a life they never would have planned. The good news is that coming to the end of their expectations means they’re on the brink of great wisdom, peace, and joy. That’s what the ancient author of Ecclesiastes helps us figure out—it is quite possible to face detours and dead-ends in life and still find more satisfaction than you ever could have imagined.
 
Better explores the mysteries, scandalous lines, and deep truths of Ecclesiastes and applies them to life today. Better seeks to show how the questions of the heart find their answer in the person of Jesus. Here you will find a vision of life that is neither naive nor cynical, but realistic and hopeful. Because the truth is, when God answers the questions, you finally realize what is better.

Editorial Reviews

Tim Chaddick's Better is an important call to seek after God, as well as an insightful commentary on today's media-obsessed culture. With characteristic passion and wit, Chaddick unpacks the book of Ecclesiastes for the modern leader and reader, engaging the hard questions and many paradoxes found in this Old Testament book. Here is a work stocked full of ancient wisdom for this age of seekers, skeptics, and young visionaries. Don't miss it!

Tim Chaddick has written an important book. Not simply because it highlights the beauty of Jesus, but because it unmasks the temptations and distractions that leave us empty and unfulfilled. An insightful, thoughtful, and compelling vision of why life in the Kingdom of God is better than life in a shallow, consumer culture.

In this powerful book, Tim Chaddick winsomely explores how the writer of Ecclesiastes speaks to the human search for significance, calling us to face the cosmic anxiety of the meaninglessness of life without God and pointing us to the mind-blowing reality that Jesus' life, death, and resurrection change every part of our lives. Chaddick is an important voice in the church who is doing fantastic work in Hollywood, and I am thankful for his ministry and for this book.

Tim is one of my dearest friends and also one of my greatest teachers. His insights into God, people, culture and Scriputure always inspire and challenge me deeply. When Tim speaks I listen, and now I look forward to years of reading everything he writes.

"Tim Chaddick is a gifted young Bible teacher with a flourishing ministry in a tough urban context. I'm excited to see him connect the timeless truths of one of the most overlooked books of the Bible with the empty pursuit of lesser gods such as sex, money, fame, power, and possessions."

"Tim ministers in the city of LA, a place where searching for significance can easily take over families, careers, and even life itself. I know the message of this book has satisfied the souls of countless people because, as Tim's close friend, I've seen this message change him as well. He's one of the most helpfully provocative thinkers I know, and he practices what he preaches."
