Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2006-04-01)

Author of the classic When Bad Things Happen to Good People, whose title has entered the lexicon of mourning, Rabbi Kushner here examines the story of Moses to suggest how to deal with life's inevitable setbacks. With a 100,000-copy first printing; a 14-city tour.

Review by Library Journal (2006-07-01)

Few writers in popular spirituality have been more prolific, more beloved, or more successful in reaching across the lines that divide one faith from another than Rabbi Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People). Here, he skillfully negotiates two puzzles: Why did Moses, as depicted in Hebrew Scripture, struggle so hard and not see the Promised Land, and how can we all cope with disappointment? Kushner finds deep meaning and satisfaction in Moses's heroism and duty and sees in him an example for us all. Distinctive in its approach and gracefully written, Overcoming is perhaps Kushner's best book in years. Highly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 4/1/06.]
