Ecclesiastes is a challenging book for preachers, but a surprisingly relevant link to postmodern thinking. Walter Kaiser’s Coping with Change (Christian Focus) offers a helpful guide to preachers and teachers dealing with this Old Testament book. As Kaiser observes, “Ecclesiastes is the best news around for such baffled and confused postmodern men and women. It is the book for persons who want to live again—now. It is the working person’s book: It answers the residual boredom and loneliness of postmodernity, especially for those who are tired of the routine of joylessly eating, drinking and earning a paycheck—but with no sense of any enjoyment in the whole process, or of where any of it comes from, much less with what any of it means.” This could be a helpful spark to a powerful sermon series.
