Life is good. Until it’s not.
These days we have the ingenuity, resources, and technology at our fingertips to make life better, more fulfilling, more meaningful. At the same time, we are barraged with global pandemics, social unrest, economic hardships, health crises, and on and on. This leaves us trying to answer the age-old questions: Why are we here? What really gives our lives purpose and meaning?
In this 8-session Bible study, Hannah Anderson shows that while the book of Ecclesiastes doesn’t offer an escape from the struggles of being human, it offers a wealth of timeless insight on the human condition. Truths from this ancient book will encourage you to face the limits of your control, accept the reality of suffering, and find goodness in the life that God has given you. You’ll see that set within the broader canon of Scripture, Ecclesiastes is more than good advice or self-help. With raw honesty and uncomfortable realism, it frees you to ask the questions that Jesus Himself will ultimately answer.
