Seeing Jesus in the Whirlwind 16 Oct. 2012
By Jacob Sweeney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ecclesiastes has appealed to some and confused many. A few of its verses out-of-context can make many feel as thought it is simply the nihilistic ramblings of a depressed man. The repeated expression that "all is vanity" could sound more like a man drowning his sorrows in the corner of a seedy bar than one inspired by the Holy Spirit. Yet, it has still remained part of our Old Testament for centuries now. So, rather than fight the man and remove it, we do what all good Evangelicals do with something we don't understand: we ignore it.

Sidney Greidanus had done us a considerable service with his latest book. He has modeled Christian, Expository preaching from the Old Testament since the publication of his Preaching Christ from the Old Testament was published in 1999. His newest work on Ecclesiastes follows in that model and provides an entry into this often perplexing OT wisdom book. Ecclesiastes is predominantly a book of sermons. He explains the book, argues for inclusion in Evangelical preaching and explains his approach. Then he devotes the rest of the book to model sermons which cover the entire book.

If Ecclesiastes wasn't confusing enough, talking about Jesus in the midst of it may only confuse people more. Yet, Greidanus again proves a reliable guide. His expertise allows us to see that Jesus truly is proclaimed in all of Scripture and that the word of God speaks to all of life. Greidanus' has provided another indispensable tool for those who preach and teach. This is a must have addition to any pastor's library.

Great resource 15 Jan. 2011
By Bryant K. Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a pastor, I was looking for a great source on Ecclesiastes that would aid in preparation for biblical theology and Christocentric sermons. I purchased the Kindle version of this book and love it.

I would highly recommend this title to any theologian, pastor, or student seeking to gain greater understanding of the hope offered by "the Preacher" of Ecclesiastes.
Excellent Resource for Preaching from Ecc and the OT in General 7 Mar. 2012
By Tim Brieaddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Last year I preached through Ecclesiastes and found Greidanus to be a fantastic resource. He breaks the text into 15 sermon sections providing scholarly exegesis of the Hebrew, literary analysis, redemptive historical progressions (how the text has been used from Solomon's time forward through the NT) and excellent tools for preaching Christ in a way that is applicable and tied to the original meaning. What more can a preacher ask for! I highly recommend this work and Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method (also by Greidanus)if you are serious about understanding the continuity of the Scriptures and preaching Christo-centrically.

A very good hybrid between practical exposition and scholarly exegesis that will help anyone seeking to find Christ in Ecclesiastes.
