"Why is there injustice? Why can I never get ahead? What does it take to be happy?" We were meant to question the meaning of life. The truth is this; our fear that life may be futile is actually a first step on a vital journey. It awakens us to our need for someone to step into the darkness and allay our fears. Through powerful biblical teaching and real-life stories, the Better Bible study will takes questions from your life and answers from the heart of God. Take a look at this video overview of the series.

In these five powerful sessions, Tim Chaddick guides you through the timeless wisdom of Ecclesiastes in light of our struggles today. Ecclesiastes takes an honest look at life and helps us see what’s really important.

Tim Chaddick is the Lead Pastor of Reality LA, a church he planted in Los Angeles. He is also the author of Better: How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning. Listen as he talks about why Ecclesiastes resonates with him and how to make this Bible study meaningful for your small group to experience together.

Tim quoted Herman Mellville, the author of Moby Dick, when he said that "Ecclesiastes is the truest of all books." This resonated with Tim because he said Ecclesiastes describes how life really is without the lens of faith. How do you struggle with the vanities of life? What questions do the people in your small group wrestle with?
