By nature, people are uncomfortable reflecting on life’s hardest realities, such as the uncertainty of the future and the certainty of death. Instead of considering our existence beyond this life, we often choose to focus on the fleeting pleasures of this world. Alistair Begg reminds us that, despite our best efforts to ignore these issues, our hearts will remain restless until we find rest in the God who created us.
Chasing The Wind
Trapped in a dark world without God, the writer of Ecclesiastes searches frantically for some light on the path. Indulging in everything this world has to offer leaves him empty and unfulfilled. After climbing high on the ladder of life, he makes the tragic discovery that it was propped against the wrong wall. Growing cynical about life’s achievements, he begins to question the rationale behind everything. These studies touch the pulse of a generation caught between material prosperity and spiritual poverty. Alistair Begg helps us make sense of this relevant book, so that we can live life with purpose and meaning. In order to do this, we must first discover what it means to fear God, which is the beginning of true wisdom.
