Cuando su hijo fue diagnosticado a los tres años de edad con una enfermedad degenerativa que acortaría su vida en la adolescencia, Harold Kushner se enfrentó a una de las preguntas más angustiantes en la vida: ¿Por qué, Dios? Años más tarde, el rabino Kushner escribió esta contemplación sencilla y elegante de las dudas y temores que surgen cuando una tragedia nos golpea la puerta. Kushner comparte su sabiduría como rabino, como padre, como lector y como ser humano. Con múltiples imitaciones que no han logrado superar este original, Cuando a la gente buena le pasan cosas malas es un clásico que nos ofrece pensamientos claros y consolación en períodos de dolor y tristeza.

Reads almost like a dissertation on the role of God in today's society and how God can be a source of comfort and support in the most trying of times. Looks at the different views we as people hold concerning the Divine and particularly utilizes the story of Job to create thoughtful discussion. Excellent.read more

I expected this book to be hokey and filled with the dull HANG IN THERE platitudes of every other self-help-through-hard-times book I've read, but instead I found a perspective on religion that changed my life. As a unitarian, I can't recommend this book enough to fellow Christian Unitarians. However, since the entire basis of it revolves around the nature of God, I can't really recommend it for anyone from a non-religious perspective, which stinks.read more

This book is well written and the writing style is easy to follow. Rabbi Kushner still has not come to terms with the death of his son. He failed to answer the question: Why do good people suffer?read more

Excellent book to help sort out feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and frustration over a loss. Great for helping one discover where God fits in tragic situations.

An interesting summation of the different ways people act in bad situations. Credible advice on how to deal with people properly when they have been dealt a raw hand, in addition to how to deal with events better in one's own life.

Rated: A-Are you capable of forgiving and loving the people around you, even if they have hurt you and let you down by not being perfect? Can you forgive them and love them because there aren't any perfect people around, and because the penalty for not being able to love imperfect people is condemning oneself to loneliness.
