Only by keeping the end in mind can a person truly learn how to live in the here and now. Living in light of our death re-orients us to our limitations as creatures and helps us to see God's good gifts right in front of us - enabling us to live wisely, freely and generously.
Drawing on wisdom from the book of Ecclesiastes, David Gibson teaches us to embrace this counter-cultural mind-set and live life backward: to take the one thing in the future that is certain - our death - and work backward when it comes to our priorities, goals, desires and decisions. If we do this, we'll learn that only with a proper perspective on death can we find meaning and satisfaction in life.
"David Gibson's expositions of Ecclesiastes are like Ecclesiastes itself: sometimes shocking, often tantalizing, always refreshing. He deftly combines serious stuff with a light touch, clear style, and gospel relief."
- Dale Ralph Davis, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary
