Are you brave enough to face the biggest questions of life? Philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre “I can only answer the question ‘What am I to do?’ if I can answer the prior question ‘Of what story or stories do I find myself a part?’” At a time when more Tasmanians reject the Christian story than believe it, and those who say they believe it are also shaped by many, many other stories, we want to take the time to investigate the truth of those stories with the aid of one of the first ever works of Philosophy. Another Philosopher, Peter Kreeft says:
Ecclesiastes is the one book in the Bible that modern man needs most to read, for it is Lesson One, and the rest of the bible is Lesson Two, and modernity does not heed Lesson Two because it does not heed Lesson One.
It’s a good thing to have all the props pulled out from under us occasionally. It gives us some sense of what is rock under our feet, and what is sand.
