Product Description

If students take some time to look around they'll discover the same truth that Mel Gibson, Kurt Cobain, Trent Reznor, and King Solomon learned. Everything is meaningless. By looking around at the book of Ecclesiastes, and observing the lessons that Solomon writes about, students will understand that without God, everything in life is meaningless. This book will help students look critically at what the world has to offer, and what God is handing them freely. They'll have the opportunity to learn the hard truth that Solomon learned without the pain of experiencing it themselves. This book could change everything about the way they live the rest of their lives. In a voice that speaks like a good, wise friend, author Mark Matlock will guide students to God's truth--the truth that can be found in life everyday.'

Publisher's Description

FILL IN THE BLANK: MY LIFE WOULD BE MEANINGFUL IF__________________. People have all kinds of ways to fill in that blank. Some want more money. Some more influence. Others more pleasure. The point is we want MORE. But is that enough? Does devouring everything the world has to offer lead to satisfaction? In the Bible, the book of Ecclesiastes describes someone who tried to answer that question. Whether it was sex, drugs, money, power, food, relationships, or knowledge, King Solomon of Israel tried it all—and documented what he discovered in his search for purpose in his life. Living a Life That Matters lets you gaze over Solomon’s shoulder as he indulges every pleasure, exercises every power, and emerges with a radical conclusion about how to live. You’ll find ways that his search for meaning connects with yours and how your story can connect with your friends’ as they seek meaning in the world.
