In this volume, the author respects the pastoral and theological contribution of Ecclesiastes without muting its critique of simplistic and comfortable approaches to the life of faith. Particularly in an era of uncertain identity, the flux of worldviews, and the elusiveness of truth, Christians need a fresh look at the insights of this ancient sage.

The book presents essays expanding on themes useful for teaching, preaching, and Bible study; bibliographies; charts; a map for Judges; and an index of ancient sources. "Believers church" refers to churches in the Anabaptist heritage of faith.

"This is a superb volume . . . Douglas Miller enables us to see how tremendously appropriate Ecclesiastes is for our times."
—Marva J. Dawn, author of Being Well When We're Ill; In the Beginning GOD: Creation, Culture, and the Spiritual Life; and The Sense of the Call

"A gift to the church and a wonderful guide for anyone reading Ecclesiastes . . . pastors and students should have this book in their libraries."
—Ray Van Leeuwen, professor of biblical studies, Eastern University

"A journey through Ecclesiastes with Miller's helpful insights is well worth the trip!"
—Steven Schweitzer, academic dean and associate professor (Old Testament), Bethany Theological Seminary

"Miller's commentary invites us to include the writer of Ecclesiastes as a trustworthy companion through the twists and turns of our journey of life."
—Lydia Neufeld Harder, Toronto School of Theology

"This commentary is a must read for the believer who faces fear and uncertainty in a quest for a deeper faith."
—Bob Neff, former general secretary of the Church of the Brethren
