Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity (Ecclesiastes 1:2)
What if we have it wrong? What if happiness is not found in having a better paying job, a wife and three children, knowing the right people, or even going to church?
What is the secret of successful living? After getting more gold, wives, fine houses, and wisdom than any other man on earth, King Solomon discovered the secret. The book of Ecclesiastes is not as much a book of lament for himself as it is a message for the people, for us. Having attained it all, King Solomon wants to leave us with his final conclusions. Let him show you how to store up treasures in heaven, treasures that surpass even those of him who gathered all things under the sun.
The Philosophy of King Solomon explores Solomon's wisdom, the folly of man's ways, and the still-unfolding prophecy found in the rich book of Ecclesiastes.
