Technically this is a re-read (I first read it about 20 years ago). Tomorrow I am preaching on priorities and using Ecclesiastes for one of the reference points. SInce I knew Kushner uses Qoheleth's life (as described in Ecclesiastes) as the basis for this book I thought it was a good week to refresh my memory.
I like Kushner's writing. In fact when I wrote a paper on Ecclesiastes in first-year of seminary I had to include this book as a reference in addition to the articles that the prof had assigned. Largely because I found it more readable and because I always like to have a Jewish POV on a book from Jewish scripture.
