Eunny P. Lee, "The Vitality of Enjoyment in Qohelet's Theological Rhetoric"
English | 2005 | ISBN: 3110184419 | PDF | pages: 184 | 5,5 mb
This study explores the interplay between the commendation of enjoyment and the injunction to fear God in Ecclesiastes. Previous studies have tended to examine these seemingly antithetical themes in isolation from one another. Seeing enjoyment and fear to be positively correlated, however, enables a fresh articulation of the book’s theology. Enjoyment of life lies at the heart of Qohelet’s vision of piety, which may be characterized as faithful realism, calling for an authentic engagement with both the tragic and joyous dimensions of human existence.NitroFlare
