Life Is Too Important To Be Taken Seriously: Kite Flying Lessons from Ecclesiastes
Mandy Smith has written a fabulous small group study on the book of Ecclesiastes.
"You will be encouraged by this book! It's tempting to consider Ecclesiastes a sad and pessimistic part of God's Word, but Mandy Smith helps us see Solomon's melancholy musings in a positive light. Ecclesiastes isn't meant to discourage us, but to free us from the illusion that we can find lasting joy anywhere but in God Himself."
David Faust ~ President, Cincinnati Christian University
"The breezy title of this serious book gives a clue to the joy readers will discover in its pages. The book examines core issues that are a part of every life: How do I find happiness? What is the worth of my work? How should I feel about money or learning? How important is my self-image? But the treatment of these topics is anything but usual! The writer combines a lighthearted look at life with a serious consideration of biblical truth. The result is a study book perfect for personal reflection or group discussion. Everyone who reads this book will find ways to apply its points in everyday life this week!"
Mark A. Taylor ~ Publisher and Editor, Christian Standard
"Do you ever find yourself unable to enjoy the present because you are working toward a "perfect" future? Do you ever find yourself over-committed and, as a result, constantly stressed because of the pressures in your life? Does that unrelenting pressure rob you of your joy? If so, then this book is for you! In a clear and easy-to-follow style, Mandy Smith shares some helpful, down-to-earth insights gleaned from the book of Ecclesiastes. I found myself reading with a pencil in hand, marking passages for further thought and reflection."
