Harold S. Kushner is rabbi laureate of Temple Israel in Natick, Massachusetts, having long served that congregation. He is best known as the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People.
"The author pours into [the book] everything a long life has taught him about this psalm, and all that this psalm has taught him about life. . . . It is a book worthy of attention from people of all faiths." --The Dallas Morning News
"This is a nurturing book that will bring comfort to those who are grieving and peace to those who are caught in the vise of constant fear." --Spirituality & Health "Reaffirms [Rabbi Kushner's] pre-eminent position among the religious teachers of the 21st century . . .This book is filled with just the right story, anecdote or illustration at just the right place." --Jewish Media Review "One of Kushner's strengths always has been his ability to empathize, to understand the pain of others on a personal level, and to share his gentle wisdom in an accessible manner. . . . Nearly as soothing as the psalm itself, Kushner's words elucidate, reassure and encourage." --The Plain Dealer
