    An excellent contemporary translation of Ecclesiastes followed with good commentary

    This is not a book to simply read This is one of those books that you can pick up on a uiet evening and read a chapter to stimulate some thoughts; to help you see the world through different eyes The translation when matched up against the traditional biblical translations of Ecclesiastes shows the liberties that Rami took with the text and his bias I read each section against the traditional text to help further understand the passages It worked well by the fire on cold winter evenings
