Abstract:

The present volume gives an up-to-date, readable commentary on the book of Ecclesiastes. The commentary covers critical issues section by section while emphasizing the larger theological and literary issues in Ecclesiastes and illustrating its relevance for modern readers. "The unique book of Ecclesiastes requires a unique kind of commentary, one that probes its ancient wisdom with critical deference, appreciates its frustrating ambiguity, and extends its insights in ways that are profoundly relevant for contemporary readers. Julie Duncan''s treatment succeeds in every respect. Elegantly written, her commentary explores the book''s ancient Near Eastern context in fresh ways and engages Qohelet''s wisdom with some of the most pressing questions of our day, demonstrating that there may be "nothing new under the sun" after all.
