When Bad Things Happen to Good People
When Harold Kushner?s three-year-old son was diagnosed with a degenerative disease that meant the boy would only live until his early teens, he was faced with one of life?s most difficult questions: Why, God? Years later, Rabbi Kushner wrote this straightforward, elegant contemplation of the doubts and fears that arise when tragedy strikes. In these pages, Kushner shares his wisdom as a rabbi, a parent, a reader, and a human being. Often imitated but never superseded, When Bad Things Happen to Good People is a classic that offers clear thinking and consolation in times of sorrow.
