Preaching Christ from Ecclesiastes: Foundations for Expository Sermons
Greidanus, Sidney

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2010 pp. xvii + 340. $26.00

Description: As Sidney Greidanus points out here, Ecclesiastes is especially relevant for our culture ó the Teacher confronts enticements like materialism, secularism, hedonism, human autonomy, and self-sufficiency. But how can preachers convey these important teachings to their congregations in a helpful way? / Sidney Greidanus here does preachers a great service by providing the foundations for one or more series of expository sermons on Ecclesiastes. He breaks the book down in several ways, including: the boundaries of each preaching text, the textís theme and goal, various ways to move to Christ in the New Testament, detailed exposition of the fifteen literary units, and application for today

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Wisdom Literature, Ecclesiastes/Qoheleth, Literature
