Scientific discovery, technological revolution and the pursuit of material affluence have been the hallmarks of the western world in the late 20th century. For many people a sense of personal significance and lasting satisfaction remain as elusive as ever. Is the pathway to them impossible to find? The Pundit's Folly answers this question by means of the experiences described in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes (the Pundit of the book's title). It unmasks the false promises of happiness which the world offers and uncovers the dissatisfactions, longings and needs of the heart in order to point to the source of true satisfaction in Jesus Christ. Written specifically to help non-Christians, The Pundit's Folly is a tool for evangelism; but its biblical content and explanation of the Christian gospel will provide encouragement to those who are already Christians to witness to Christ and to live unreservedly for him.
