Ecclesiastes is a perplexing book, yet there are silver linings within the clouds descibed by “the Preacher” who wrote the book. One way to discover those silver linings is to explore the sayings of Ecclesiastes in light of the Psalms of David. From the perspective of a psychiatrist and a pastor, Dan Blazer and Earl Palmer will help us explore these wonderful texts of Scripture.
