How Jesus Satisfies the Search for Meaning
by Tim Chaddick With Craig Borlase
"Tim Chaddick's Better is an important call to seek after God...stocked full of ancient wisdom for this age of seekers, skeptics, and young visionaries."
—Brad Lomenick, author of The Catalyst Leader and president of Catalyst.
Better explores the mysteries, scandalous lines, and deep truths of Ecclesiastes and applies them to life today.
"Life not working out the way I thought it would turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me."
"Tim's insights into God, people, culture and Scripture always inspire and challenge me deeply."—Read what Britt Merrick and other leaders have to say about Better.
"There is a lot of superficial living within the church today, due in part to that fact that the church hasn't wrestled with many of the difficult themes in life, causing them to treat Jesus almost as a sort of commodity that they add to life rather than a whole new way of living life."

Better points in a winsome style that the book was always meant to have a higher target - the fullness of Jesus Christ, loose and fiery in the fabric of the human heart.
Chaddick does a great job of getting at the meaning of Ecclesiastes and how it matters for us in the 21st century. Over and over he delivers the Preacher's message that absolutely everything in this world is vanity bound for destruction.
Chaddick has created a resource that goes far beyond cliche into creating a book that actually has power to be transformative in each readers life.
For many years I've argued that the body of Christ has emphasized the New Testament, the Psalms, the Torah, and the Prophets. However, the wisdom literature (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, etc.) is often skipped over. Better is a modern-day discussion and application of the book of Ecclesiastes.
