the pundit's folly

On Sunday 9 August I finished The Pundit's Folly by Sinclair Ferguson. Originally a set of conference talks on Ecclesiastes, I think; it was okay, probably a bit disappointed that it wasn't better. But then, I've read a lot on Ecclesiastes.

The cover is, I think, an unusually bold design for a Banner of Truth book, with no text at all on the cover (you can see the spine, pink capitals and publisher logo in white boxes), just a striking, partly-coloured image which looks like the kind of line drawing or engraving of the kind one would think of as pre-20th-century, and which suits well a book on Ecclesiastes. There is, inevitably, no indication of whether this is an old or new image, or who made it.
