by Bob Hostetler
Many people seem to blithely skip through the meadows of this world, with nary a wound or scar. Day after day seems to shine on them. They wake up each morning with a smile on their face. . . . This book is not for them.
There is something dreadfully wrong with this world, and everyone knows it.
Some try to fix it. Some try to ignore it. Some recognize that the same thing that is wrong with the world is wrong with us—and nothing will change until we grasp that reality.
Life Stinks . . . And Then You Die is a gritty, honest look at the world around us and the world inside us. It is based on an ancient book of wisdom that many consider to be the Bible's most perplexing book, Ecclesiastes, to a man who seemed to have every advantage—wealth, education, and power could possibly offer—but still struggled to find happiness and meaning. It does not offer platitudes. No easy fixes. It doesn't spackle over the rough reality of life in the twenty-first century. But it does offer perspective. And hope. And a plan for living well in spite of all that's wrong with the world and with us.
