Inspired by M.C. Escher's drawing of a never-ending staircase, this illustration for the book of Ecclesiastes is one of sixty commissioned by Lion Hudson
for 'Simply the Bible'
. Ecclesiastes is one of the most surprising books of the Bible: a cynical, weary summary of the apparent pointlessness of life. The 'Teacher' looks at all of life – everything under the sun – and concludes that everything is futile, pointless and in vain.
For anyone who finds the Bible a bit daunting, or simply wants a brief overview, 'Simply the Bible'
(published in June 2013) provides a clear and simple introduction to each book.
