The question is.... Is everything meaningless? Jesus expressed a similar thought in Mark 8:36: For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
Losing our own soul makes everything meaningless.

What do you make of this chapter? What do you think of my summary? How would you summarise it?

I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.

These are the summaries of the book of Ecclesiastes.

They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.

Find out about the project here, you can buy the Bible Summary book on Kindle or in paperback, and feel free to get in contact if you have any comments or questions.
