Description - When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Harold S. Kushner

There is only one question which really matters: why do bad things happen to good people? "Out of a faith-shaking and senseless waste of a life comes this remarkable and caring book, which will help many. It has sensible and unorthodox and mind-opening things to say about God - and about ourselves. Its author has wisdom and no bitterness. We can learn from him, about acceptance and guilt and despair and the helplessness we all feel when 'none of it makes sense' when we say 'why them?' or worse 'why us?'. We owe him our thanks" - David Kossoff. "Rabbi Kushner writes from a wealth of Jewish wisdom and pastoral devotion, but his theology is, I find, is wholly in keeping with contemporary Christian thought. So far as there is an answer to the conflict between the goodness of God and the bitterness of suffering, this is it" - Gerald Priestland. "It will bring new meaning, strength and hope to many" - Dame Cicely Saunders, DBE, FRCP.
