The book of Ecclesiastes has long fascinated many people, and many feel it is one of most puzzling books in the Old Testament. It is considered by some the melancholiest book of the Bible and it is often quoted by those who deny that man has a soul which continues after death.
This is not a book Christians should ignore. In our materialistic society, there is a great need to understand its basic message. Also, in our youth-oriented society, it is of special value as its message appears directed to the young.
