Ecclesiastes with Pete Enns

Ecclesiastes with Pete Enns

June 11, 2018

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!
