Fear God and Keep His Commandments: A Practical Exposition of Ecclesiastes
Tiberius Rata Kevin Roberts
Solomon, the wisest man in history, was Israel’s third king. While his name does not appear as the author of Ecclesiastes, his fingerprints are all over the book. His words challenge and encourage the reader to live as if his or her time were short and to fear God in all things.
This interdisciplinary commentary is written for serious students of the Bible, including professors, Sunday School teachers, and laypeople who want both a theological and psychological perspective on this much beloved and fascinating Old Testament book.
