By looking carefully at the language and thought of Ecclesiastes, as well as at its uses of contradictions in probing the meaning of life, Fox confronts the problems that have confounded the interpretation of this book. "Fox, already established as one of the foremost interpreters of Hebrew wisdom literature, presents a powerfully persuasive reading of the book of Ecclesiastes. I recommend this work for all serious Bible readers." - Tremper Longman III. 424 pages, from Eerdmans

Called a "sparkling study" by Roland Murphy, this new investigation into the paradoxes and contradictions of Qohelet by Michael Fox shows that it is precisely these contradictions that make Ecclesiastes so meaningful and relevant to life in the world.By looking carefully at the language and thought of Ecclesiastes, as well as at its uses of contradictions in probing the meaning of life, Fox confronts the problems that have confounded interpretation of this book. He shows that by using contradiction to tear down holistic claims of meaning and purpose in the world and rebuilding meaning in a local, restricted sense instead, the author of Ecclesiastes shapes a bold, honest -- and ultimately uplifting -- vision of life.
