    This brief commentary started off okay, but I just couldn t connect with it A few things bothered me 1 It is quote heavy They are constantly quoting the works of others It reminds me of Dwight Pentecost s awful Things to Come which gained the nickname, Things to Quote Some of their best material came from someone else Whenever authors heavily quote others I am left wondering if they have anything original to say That may not be fair, but it s the impression I had And to top it off I cannot stand in text references Footnotes please 2 Another thing that annoyed me a bit was the authors, from my perspective, trying too hard to sound cool There were too many cultural references which will be outdated within a few short years I am completely for using cultural references in sermons, etc in order to bring Scripture to weigh upon culture, but in my opinion they over did it I do believe the reference to Groundhog Day fit with Ecclesiastes well, but some of the other cultural references seemed forced 3 They also condensed too much of Ecclesiastes Chapters 7 11 are clumped together in a measly 14 pages To be fair the book is under 150 pages 4 Some of their structuring is weird Why clump together chapters 7 11 What s the justification 5 The last chapter, while containing so...

    This book is a great introduction to Ecclesiastes, and I would highly recommend it for new students of Ecclesiastes or for anyone looking for a broad overview The author makes apt connections between the ancient world being written about and our modern experience, demonstrating convincingly that these two worlds have all of the same problems, and a common remedy There are incredibly quotable lines about the contemporary maladies facing our culture inside and ...

    Had to put it down The commentary starts from the assumption that the question the Teacher the author of Ecc is exploring is if there is meaning in this post fall world The phrase translated everything is meaningless or futile is declaring that everything ends, not that there is no point, and Ecc deals with how we should con...

    I read this in tandem with Douglas Sean O Donnell s Ecclesiastes in the Reformed Expository Commentary series I must say Akin s work is an excellent devotional resource, and as others have said very pastoral in tone But for my purposes a sermon series on Ecclesiastes , Akin was a just a tad lacking It is a great companio...

    Title Exalting Jesus in Ecclesiastes Christ Centered Exposition Commentary Author Dr Daniel L Akin Jonathan Akin Ph D.Pages 288Year 2016Publisher Holman ReferenceMy rating is 4 stars.The Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes is packed with much wisdom and visuals that can be unpacked to be able to understand and apply in our daily lives The commentary is another helpful aid in studying the writing of Solomon s wisdom gained from all he saw or did in his lifetime The authors use a little too many references or summations based on music or movies I prefer understanding the historical timeframe, ancient people and religious society at the time Solomon was alive.There is much I can and did appreciate in what the authors shared along with the questions at the end of the chapters that would help for small group or personal use While it s true the authors mainly wrote to help pastors teach Biblical truths, let s not forget that we are all called to be Bereans and can use the commentary too.While there aren t many chapters in Ecclesiastes, which were added later, there is much wisdom that we can learn in 12 chapters I hope you spend time seeing Jesus in the Book of Ecclesiastes and come away changed because of having spent time with Him Disclosure of Material Connection I received one or of the products or services mentioned abov...
