The Book of Qoheleth stands apart from all other books of the Hebrew Bible. It alternates irony, fatalism, spleen, but also invitation to joy; no wonder how difficult it looks even for the diligent Bible reader!
The “Qoheleth Paradox“: that’s the title of my talk at IFES Strasbourg on February 16, 2012 at 8 PM. Come to the Protestant University Chaplaincy, 7 avenue de la Forêt Noire. See you on Thursday! 😉
