The book of Ecclesiastes seemingly fails to fit in with the rest of Scripture – it has no obvious outline, no narrative. Where proverbs offers practical guidance for living, Ecclesiastes offers musings and observations about this life.
This unusual book meets the discouraged and disillusioned in their struggle, and offers a a gentle encouragement toward that which gives meaning.
What is the purpose of all we encounter, endure, and experience in this life?
Is it truly all in vain?
Michael teaches an overview of the book of Lamentations. A mournful post-script to the longest book of the Bible (Jeremiah), Lamentations serves a sure and certain warning. As God’s people grieve the loss of the Tabernacle, heaven remains silent.
What does this tell us about who God is? How should we read and respond to this difficult text?
The encouragement found in the sorrowful prose of this book may surprise you–and even offer hope: God’s lovingkindness never ceases.
