How to read the OT Wisdom Literature - Ecclesiastes 1:1-2:2:11 The Blunt Honesty of an Athiest - and then some

Does life ever seem meaningless to you? Or, have you made some bad decisions, or are you facing some hard choices? In each of these cases what we need is wisdom - godly wisdom... and it can be found the section of the bible known as the books of wisdom. Job,Proverbs,Ecclesiastes are known as the books of wisdom and together with Psalms and The Song of Solomon are also known as the books of Poetry. Each of these five books gives a different type of wisdom that we desperately need to hear. Today we look first at a guiding principles for understanding each of these books, then apply this approach to the first two chapters of the book of Ecclesiastes. It turns out that in the very place that seems so hopeless - a man crying out "Meaningless, meaningless, everything is meaningless" - true hope can be found!
