The  Wisdom  of  Ecclesiastes   –   An  invitation  to  thoughtful,  realistic,  joyful  and  active faith.

 

Ecclesiastes-Wordle (chosen one)

 

Rev. Dr. Knut Heim, Lecturer in Old Testament a Trinity College Bristol, will help us to discover the book of Ecclesiastes as an inspiration for life and a resource for ministry and discipleship.

He will provide fresh interpretations of the book, developing from his work on commentaries on Ecclesiastes for the well-known Tyndale Old Testament Commentary series (TOTC) and the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament (ZECOT) series.

He will relate the wisdom of Ecclesiastes to the wider context of the Bible, the findings of the modern scientific study of happiness, modern economics, and his own personal experience as an ordained Christian minister.
