Publishers Description
The book of Ecclesiastes speaks eloquently to the uncertainties and anxieties that people have experienced through the centuries. James Limburg brings this ancient book to life for readers in our probing, questioning twenty-first-century times. He illuminates the contemporary existential themes in Ecclesiastes -- the quest for meaning in life, the incompleteness of our knowledge, the place of work in human lives, and the need to discover God amid life's uncertainties. A fresh, relevant discussion, arising from Limburg's extensive teaching experience, Encountering Ecclesiastes is ideal for any reader seeking to understand the timeless wisdom of Ecclesiastes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good introduction to an intriguing text  May 12, 2007
A very readable and contemporary take on the Book of Ecclesiastes, written from a Christian perspective. Limburg sees the book and its writer in an ultimately positive light, counselling us to enjoy our God-given life even in the midst of confusion and aging. He discusses workaholism and Bonhoeffer in thoughtful ways.

This is a good basic introduction to the book, the prose flows very well. No index. For a fuller, more scholarly, and very insightful read on Ecclesiastes, I recommend Jacques Ellul.Reason for Being: A Meditation on Ecclesiastes
Great book  Dec 12, 2006
The book is too short, but it contains some great thoughts.
The author has a very "earthy theology" and he pulls on some very good letters from Bonhoffer to underline his understanding of Ecclesiasties in this respect.
He also deals with how our attitude toward life should be in the face of death. I recommend this book to anyone meditating on Ecc. Its not a verse by verse commentary really nor does it seek to give a systematic theology of the book. But, I think the author captures the spirit of the book well and presents us with very readable musings ont he book.
