Product Description

One of the most literary---yet one of the most perplexing---books in the Old Testament, Qoheleth (Ecclesiastes) has roused the interest of poets, philosophers, and historians. Rather than seeing the book as a cynic's swan song, Lohfink discovers elements of joy and a call for a more balanced view of life. 144 pages, hardcover. Fortress.

Publisher's Description

This new addition to the successful Continental Commentary series is a significant and fresh treatment of Qoheleth (or Ecclesiastes). A famed professor presents a startlingly new translation of this often perplexing book of the Old Testament. Lohfink also argues for a rather different interpretation of the book than one finds elsewhere. Rather than reading the book's perspective as depressing, lost, or cynical, he highlights the elements of joy and balance. The volume includes introduction, new translation, commentary, parallel passages, bibliography, and indexes.
