Fundamental questions arise in the mind of man even today. Often, the pace of modern life robs him of his sensitivity and prevents him from paying attention to these questions. But they still remain.

Where is life going?
Does it have any meaning?
How to reconcile the distraught reality of such a promising world?
What is it all for?…

And it may come as a surprise to learn that these questions are far from modern, and have always arisen over the centuries. In this context, this book examines a piece of writing that is both very old and very current.

The Sage who is the author had the opportunity to try and observe everything that is done and said "under the sun". His conclusion is far from encouraging: "All is vanity and futility, pursuit of the wind."

But he didn't stop there, for he himself encountered a response that surprised and transformed him as much. His cynicism has given way to solid hope that will benefit modern man.


Sinclair Ferguson A native of Scotland, he recently retired from pastoring in his home country. Yet he continues to preach in many places around the world. He taught theology for many years at Westminster College, USA. He sits on the board of a well-known English-speaking Christian publishing house.
