From the Back Cover:

IS THIS ALL THERE IS TO LIFE?

Is there really nothing new under the sun? Is life really just a meaningless and empty journey to nothingness, as the atheist would have us believe? Since the days of Solomon--and before--men and women have wondered: Is this all life is about? Is it just an endless pursuit after things that never satisfy? Where can I find lasting contentment and joy?

In this inspiring exploration of Ecclesiastes, beloved Bible teacher Ray Stedman guides you through this ancient book of biblical wisdom to demonstrate that the answer is and always has been this: Contentment and joy are gifts of God. They come to people who take life daily, whatever it may bring, from the hand of a loving Father.

The record is plain for all to see, says Stedman. Life without God is dull and empty. Life with Him is full and satisfying. Even the tears and pain have meaning and value when we see that the purpose behind it all is the increase of our joy.

About the Author:

Ray C. Stedman (1917-1992) was one of the great pastors, expositors, and spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. A graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, he was pastor of the Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto, California, for forty years. With over twenty books to his credit, from "Spiritual Warfare" to his insightful commentary "Adventuring Through the Bible," Stedman spanned the experiences of the Christian life with his writing. His book "Body Life" had a tremendous impact on the church in the twentieth century.
