Lest anyone mistakenly think I am making fun of the 2nd Bible Baptist Church
of Cutbank Montana, let me assure you that my initial reaction (several
years ago) to T.Longmans treatment of this Fictional Akkadian Autobiography
genre being applied to Ecclesiastes was essentially a hostile one. I would
have been right in there with the deacons dragging Longman from the pulpit.
I am now giving Longman another reading.
