Tremper Longman (PhD, Yale) is the Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies at Westmont College. He is the author of many books, including the commentary on Ecclesiastes for the New International Commentary on the Old Testament series.

"Everything is meaningless" no more sums up the message of Ecclesiastes than the speeches of Job’s three friends sum up the meaning of Job.
