The phrase under the sun forms the single most important key to understanding the book of Ecclesiastes. The fact that it occurs twenty-nine times indicates the general perspective of the author. His search is confined to this earth. He ransacks the world to solve the riddle of life. And his whole quest is carried on by his own mind, unaided by God. This study will help you to understand this fascinating book.

The book of Judges records the history of the nation of Israel in the Promised Land from the death of Joshua until just prior to the kingdom being established under King Saul. During this period, the nation failed God repeatedly, prompting Him to allow the pagan people in the land and surrounding areas to oppress them. Whenever Israel cried out to God for help, He would graciously raise up leaders to deliver them from their enemies and a time of peace would ensue—until the next time they failed.
The writer of Judges appears to have had a threefold purpose in recording this sad history:

Jonah is not only one of the most popular books in the Bible—it is also one of the most controversial. Its historical validity is questioned by skeptics and scholars alike.It is the actual account of a man who rebelled and was swallowed by a great fish. But it is so much more.
It is the story about someone like you and me. It is the story of Jonah's struggles, calling, disobedience, problems, and prayer life. It is the story of his encounter with God and of God's gracious dealings with him. It is the story of a man, and of an entire city, that got a second chance.
