Tremper Longman III. The Book of Ecclesiastes (NICOT). Eerdmans 1998. 306 pp.

[description and analysis]

Meredith Kline criticizes Longman sharply in "Is Qoheleth Unorthodox?" Kerux 13 (1998). Kline finds Qoheleth orthodox, and consistent with Moses, Paul, and the frame narrator, because Qoheleth describes a different kind of labor and a different kind of joy. Qoheleth describes the world of common grace and common curse, when the wheat and the tares grow together and our work is sometimes in vain.
