Many people today desire a meaningful life but feel like they're just going through the motions. The author of Ecclesiastes faced the same struggle. Explaining and applying key passages in a chapter-like format, this commentary explores how we are meant to find contentment in Christ alone---nothing else will satisfy until we turn to him. 288 pages, softcover from B&H.

Publisher's Description

Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ- centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible.

Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books. Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition.

Projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

    I bought this to help me prepare to teach Ecclesiastes to our Ladies' Bible study group. The book reads more like a series of sermons than it does a commentary. I actually do appreciate how they tie different sections of the book together; I'm just not a fan of the writing style.

    I will be totally honest:

    I am NOT a fan of this approach to writing a commentary.

    I prefer a verse by verse breakdown versus going section by section breaking down the meaning. I also dislike how the commentary seems to jump around at times, trying to tie together different themes found in the book.

    I would not recommend this commentary to anyone.

    {FYI: I did receive this book from the publisher (B&H) in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}
