Reading in Ecclesiastes

More books that I am reading as I study Ecclesiastes. (Oddly enough it is in Ecclesiastes that we read the words, "Of making many books there is no end!")
  • A Time to Tear Down and a Time to Build Up by Michael Fox (expensive, and written from a Jewish perspective, not Christian)
  • Ecclesiastes by Tremper Longman (Great commentary)
  • Solomon Among the Postmoderns (recent book that is extremely helpful in analyzing current culture through the lens of Ecclesiastes)
  • Blue Like Jazz and Searching for God Knows What by Donald Miller (I am pretty sure Donald would like Ecclesiastes)
  • Against the Grain by Ray Waddle (essays and thoughts related to Ecclesiastes)
  • Ecclesiastes by T.M. Moore (helpful interpretive paraphrase)
  • The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (1920's version of Ecclesiastes minus the hope in God)
