Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Rarely does a book come along that tackles a perennially difficult human issue with such clarity and intelligence. Harold Kushner, a Jewish rabbi facing his own child's fatal illness, deftly guides us through the inadequacies of the traditional answers to the problem of evil, then provides a uniquely practical and compassionate answer that has appealed to millions of readers across all religious creeds. Remarkable for its intensely relevant real-life examples and its fluid prose, this book cannot go unread by anyone who has ever been troubled by the question, "Why me?"

Amazon.com

Death, illness, and their relationship to faith, God, and healing are the focus of this video version of Rabbi Harold Kushner's bestselling book of the same name. Kushner combines his own thoughts and experiences with interviews of parents whose children died and friends of young people with serious illnesses. Parents whose grief is fresh and those whose child died 20 years before both speak of the pain and senselessness of this type of loss. As the father of the latter couple emphasizes, the key is to accept, not understand. Kushner's theme is that "bad things" are not God's will, but the ability to transcend them is. For Jews or Christians struggling to reconcile religious belief and tragedy, this 40-minute tape will give perspective and reassurance. --Kimberly Heinrichs
