We live in constant search mode looking for purpose and meaning, trying to find something, anything, that might satisfy the deep longings of our heart. Yet this search is nothing new. Even the wisest man who ever lived struggled with these same issues finding that everything in life was meaningless, a "chasing after the wind."
Follow Solomon's search through a fascinating study of Ecclesiastes as in the depths of his despair he discovers that only the God who made the sun can offer real and lasting results under it. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Dan Panetti5 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2006Dan PanettiThis is the first book written by Prestonwood Baptist Church teaching pastor Dr. David McKinley. The Search for Satisfaction is a modern guide to the biblical book of Ecclesiastes, penned by the wisest man in history - King Solomon. Just as King Solomon searched for meaning and significance in all corners of the world, so too are many people today searching for purpose and meaning in every facet of life save one Jesus Christ. McKinley addresses the modern worlds approach to happiness and significance and knocks down each and every argument that either avoids the issue or clouds it with worldly wisdom opposed to Biblical truth and the reality of life.As McKinley knocks down the worlds wisdom in comparison with Gods truth, he also notes that many of the things that the world says are the central aspects of life are, indeed, importantjust not of central importance as compared to a persons standing and relationship with God. But friends, family, food, hard work, and just the enjoyment of each day take on a whole new meaning when given a proper perspective and a proper purpose to a servant of the Lord. McKinley avoids the pitfall of stating that this fallen world is evil; to the contrary, this fall world was created by God and is being redeemed by God through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ and the saints who have been called to serve as His ambassadors. So, each day and every activity carries meaning and significance in the life of a follower of Christ and McKinley reminds the believer to live life in such a manner as to be worthy of our calling.
