Publisher Description:You've been misled if you think the Book of Ecclesiastes is a glum, pessimistic volume lacking hope. And you're wrong if you believe the writer was a soured, despairing cynic who could see only the negative side of life. There is pessimism in the book - but it is pessimism about "life under the sun." there is nothing but optimism about the lot of those who serve God. In this original translation, the full impact of Solomon's wisdom shines forth. His understanding of life's foibles and the vanity of living for this world are countered by his frequent exhortations to rejoice . . . and have a good meal!
