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 contemplation of the doubts and fears that arise when tragedy strikes. Kushner shares his wisdom as a rabbi, a parent, a reader, and a human being.

Good book with some very interesting and useful ideas but definitely not for everybody, specially if your brand of religion is of the less tolerant variety
