Where Wisdom is Found: Christ in Ecclesiastes Where Wisdom is Found: Christ in Ecclesiastes

by J. V. Fesko

The wisdom literature of the Bible is beautiful and inspiring, yet at times it can be confusing and hard to understand. In Where Wisdom Is Found, Dr. Fesko helps us think through the book of Ecclesiastes and demonstrates how it finds its fulfillment in the crucified and resurrected Messiah. Ecclesiastes addresses many of the troubling ambiguities of life, revealing the futility of this world. But as we reflect on life under the sun, we can rejoice knowing that redemption and life in Christ bring more meaning to our existence than the vanity of things around us.

"What I appreciate most is the Westminster culture of thoughtful reflection and theologizing on issues related to the church. This culture of reflection has been especially helpful as Christ’s church faces new issues and challenges. For those ministering in a multi-cultural, global context—it is invaluable."
—Lloyd Kim (M.Div. '99), Coordinator of Mission to the World, the missionary agency of the Presbyterian Church in America
