Although Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon stand juxtaposed in the Bible and bear the common label of wisdom literature, "at first glance there seems to be a great fixed gulf" between them, as Dr. Hubbard notes. They treat a wide spectrum of human experience, from the pangs of new love to the despair of mid-life crisis. Yet both texts speak to the profound questions of our day: What is life really for? Is there any real meaning to my existence? Through the Mastering the Old Testament Series the beauty and power of ancient images and poems will not be lost on us and we are challenged to consider the relevance of the biblical text for our world.
