In postmodern culture of the West, the notion of absolute Truth has been abandoned, yet people continue to search for meaningfulness and joy in life and become only more lost in the effort.
In Coping with Change, noted theologian Walter Kaiser mines the riches of Ecclesiastes to reveal the source of true joy. Ecclesiastes provides the answer to cure the boredom that postmodernity has created. Kaiser shows that the basic hunger of humankind is to find and enjoy meaning in daily life. But what is the source of this meaning? Where can one find goodness and joy in the midst of the constant puzzling changes of life? Kaiser answers these questions based on the message of Ecclesiastes as he also presents a biblical definition of the relationship between Christ and culture.
