Fuhr (religion and biblical studies, Liberty U., Virginia) analyzes and evaluates the seven most prominent motifs in the Old Testament book of Qoohelet and demonstrate the inter-dependency of each with the others. They are a dilemma and a quest, living under the sun, looking through the lens of wisdom, how inscrutable the ways of God are, the inescapable destiny of all men, enjoying life, and fearing God. His conclusion proposes a approach to understanding the book as positive wisdom for living in a fallen world.
