Ecclesiastes' opening cry of "Meaningless, everything is meaningless" sounds hauntingly familiar. Qohelet, like many today, is driven by the question, "Where can we find meaning in the world?" This commentary by Tremper Longman III offers a new approach to Ecclesiastes that clarifies how the pessimistic outlook of the book fits into the rest of biblical revelation and what abiding message Ecclesiastes has for Christians today.

5 stars By tdeutscher, Aug 15 2012
In one of the most difficult books to understand, I find Longman's commentary one of the most helpful in making the best sense of Ecclesiastes and the issues involved.

In terms of depth and detail, Longman is probably more for the pastor, student range. It goes deeper than perhaps the everyday reader is after.

I have used his commentary alongside Seow's in the 'Anchor Bible' series and Bartholemew's in the 'Baker Commentary of the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms' series. All three are very helpful but I find Longman a good balanced approach out of them. 

He deals helpful with Authorship, Genre, Structure and Theology in a way that is clear. I feel that his exegesis of the passages are fair, though I don't always agree with him, I think he always brings something helpful to understanding the passage.

Overall I think this commentary is a 'must have' for those wanting to think seriously about Ecclesiastes.
