Ok, but Bridges is maybe a bitpious that Solomon.
After finishing a reading Ecclesiastes with a lot of questions, I picked up this commentary and read it as a devotional There were some helpful parts that answered questions I had The one that stands out the most is the interpretation of ch 12 silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken There were other difficult passages that I felt like the commentary was just handwaving and Solomon s real point and meaning weren t being addressed.
Charles Bridges is one of my favorite theologians He is engaging, easy to follow though I check the dictionary for many words that are gone from our language today This is a wonderful story of a man who had everything, who fills himself with pleasure of every kind and then, in old age, comes back to.only God.
Third time in the last thirty years.Always refreshing in full of things that I like to write down A book of the Bible that s passed over much.In our age of THINGS and Selfisms..whats needed is to get back to the beginnings.GOD Holiness which no man will see the Lord without.
An excellent and thought provoking commentary on the sometimes hard to understand Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes by a 19th century minister Also works well to read through like a devotional See my review of this same author s book on Proverbs.
Another small but valuable book Focus is on what Ecclesiastes has to say to the church There are some weaknesses, and a too quick to jump to Christ instead of what the book said to the Old Covenant church first.
