How Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End
The book of Ecclesiastes is one of the riches books in the Old Testament. It communicates wisdom by forcing us to ask the big questions that life presents us. David Gibson’s book, Living Life Backward, is a fresh look at this ancient book.
What if it is death that teaches us how to truly live?
Keeping in the end in mind shapes how we live our lives in the here and now. Living life backward means taking the one thing in our future that is certain - death - and letting that inform our journey before we get there.
Looking at the book of Ecclesiastes for wisdom, Living Life Backward was written to shake up our expectations and priorities for what it means to live “the good life.” Considering the reality of death helps us pay attention to our limitations as human beings and receive life as a wondrous gift from God - freeing us to live wisely, generously, and faithfully for God’s glory and the good of his world.
