Help Me Teach The Bible

Published on 05/28/2020

The book of Ecclesiastes raises so many questions. Who is Qoheleth? Who wrote the book? Is life really meaningless? Are we supposed to just eat, drink and be merry?After putting it off for forty years as many fine preachers and teachers have done before him, Harry Reeder, senior pastor of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, finally preached through Ecclesiastes. In our conversation, we talked about the things that make the book challenging to teach and how to organize teaching through the book. According to Reeder, Ecclesiastes has a lot to teach us about how to approach life and death, as well as the promise of life beyond death.Recommended resources:Preacher’s Toolkit: How Should I Preach EcclesiastesEcclesiastes: Why Everything Matters (Preaching the Word) by Philip Graham RykenLiving Life Backward: How Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End by David GibsonEcclesiastes: A 12-Week Study by Justin HolcombSermon Series on Ecclesiastes by Harry ReederSermon series on Ecclesiastes by Kevin DeYoung
