Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction: Why I wrote this book -- Why do the religious suffer? -- The story of a man named Job -- Sometimes there is no reason -- No exceptions for nice people -- God leaves us room to be human -- God helps those who stop hurting themselves -- God can't do everything, but he can do some important things -- What good, then, is religion?
Summary, etc.:
"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 strightforward, elegant contemplation of the doubts and fears that arise when tragedy strikes. Kusher shares his wisdom as a rabbi, a paent, a reader, and a human being....a classic that offers clear thinking and consolation in times of sorrow." --p.4 of Cover
