Product Description

In postmodern culture of the West, the notion of absolute Truth has been abandoned, yet people continue to search for meaningfulness and joy in life and become only more lost in the effort.

In Coping with Change, noted theologian Walter Kaiser mines the riches of Ecclesiastes to reveal the source of true joy. Ecclesiastes provides the answer to cure the boredom that postmodernity has created. Kaiser shows that the basic hunger of humankind is to find and enjoy meaning in daily life. But what is the source of this meaning? Where can one find goodness and joy in the midst of the constant puzzling changes of life? Kaiser answers these questions based on the message of Ecclesiastes as he also presents a biblical definition of the relationship between Christ and culture.

Publisher's Description

Ecclesiastes is a book filled with good news for those struggling to make sense of what is happening in life. Why does man madly pursue one thing and then another without meaning? True joy comes from the Lord himself, and for the one who has learned to fear God and keep his commandments, all of life holds purpose and delight. In Coping with Change, noted theologian Walter Kaiser mines the riches of Ecclesiastes to reveal the source of true joy.

Endorsements

Perhaps the most helpful feature of Kaiser's treatment is that he believes the book has a discernible plan and a traceable argument and that Qoheleth was not a cynical old goat who drank Drano or vinegar for breakfast. That makes a difference in the way you understand Ecclesiastes. Buy your own copy and find out how.
-Dale Ralph Davis

Ecclesiastes is a wisdom writing from ancient Israel but there is no book more relevant for our postmodern world today. Dr. Walter Kaiser, one of our best biblical scholars, has given us a lively commentary on this part of God's Word, one that will help us face today's changing world with integrity and faithfulness.
-Timothy George,
Beeson Divinity School

Walt Kaiser's Coping with Change walks us through the book of Ecclesiastes, functioning like a scholarly tour guide through the mind of a man who had seen and done and achieved it all--and has realized that everything is a "mist" without God.

Boyce College

... this work demonstrates a timelessness and appeal that makes it a worthwhile read for pastors, teachers, and others looking for a helpful assessment of "the relationship between Christ and culture".
... Kaiser is refreshingly positive in his approach to the book... I would heartily recommend this little volume to anyone who wants to get to grips with the message of Ecclesiastes
