What every student of the Old Testament needs is a short volume, concise and comprehensive, manageable and affordable, on the biblical book he or she is studying. This includes: introduction to the contents of the biblical book, balanced survery if the important critical issues, concentration of the theological perspectives, assessment of the most recent scholarship, crossÃ±references to standard works on Old Testament history and theology, and annotated bibliographies.
Ecclesiastes is at once a strange book and a modern one, at once enigmatic and curiously familiar. Here we find a man detached from the world and yet intensely aware of it, setting down in writing his thoughts about human life. Yet from the very first his readers have been unable to agree about his basic attitude to life. Whybray sorts through the options by asking questions regarding the author, his times, his language and his ideas.
