book: Ecclesiastes

Qoheleth. Ecclesiastes, from The New American Bible. Catholic Book Publishing Company, 1992 (edited 1970, written c. 300 BC). 10 pages.

A poetic and short but kind of horrible book. A so-called wise man has an existential crisis and wants you to know that there’s no point to anything you do, since you’re just going to die anyway. The Catholic editors admit that the “moral teaching of the book is imperfect.” That’s a bit of an understatement…

2/10 (Terrible).

    The best book of the Bible gets a 2/10? Actually, that seems about right.
