Pete Enns & The Bible for Normal People

Ecclesiastes with Pete Enns

In this episode, Pete takes us into the somber book of Ecclesiastes. He cautions us against an optimistic reading as the author intends to question everything — even God Himself. It’s a book that’s not for the faint of heart (or for the new Believer) as you need to have weathered the storms of faith to fully appreciate the tough questions being asked . . . and ultimately, the hope found within!

Pithy, shareable, less-than-280-character statements you can share. 

  • “…One of the reasons parables are sometimes listed as difficult to understand is because they tell us stuff we actually really know deep down, but we’ve got it so repressed we don’t want to acknowledge it.” Amy-Jill Levine
  • “We all tell our stories the way we want to hear them. The Hebrews did it, the early followers of Jesus did it, the United States has done it, the world does it – it’s what we do.” Amy-Jill Levine
