Trapped in the dangerous darkness of life without God, the writer searches frantically for some light on the path. Growing cynical about intellectual achievement, he embraces the absurd and the irrational. Life on the fast-track gives him everything and leaves him nothing. He climbs high on the ladder of life only to make the tragic discovery that it was propped against the wrong wall. These studies touch the pulse of a generation caught between material prosperity and spiritual poverty.
Why are so few people truly happy? Alistair Begg surveys the story of one man's quest for personal fulfillment as recorded in the Book of Ecclesiastes, where we discover that learning, pleasure, laughter, and material possessions cannot satisfy our longing to know the meaning of life. All of our pursuits are stained by sin, and we cannot discover life that is truly life apart from the God who has made Himself known.
