Description

The New York Times best-selling guide to being your best self, even when things don't turn out as you'd hoped. The beloved author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, Rabbi Harold S. Kushner here turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith--the lessons that teach us how to overcome the disappointments that life inherently brings. We can learn how to meet all disappointments with faith in ourselves and the future, and how to respond to heartbreak--how to weather the disillusionment of dreams unfulfilled, the pain of a lost job, divorce or abandonment, illness, and more--with understanding rather than bitterness and despair. With Kushner's signature warmth, Overcoming Life's Disappointments is a book of spiritual wisdom--as practical as it is inspiring.

Review quote

"No human relationship is without betrayal, irritation and annoyance, but Kushner makes clear that it's what we do about such obstacles that matter."

--Los Angeles Times Book Review



"Compassionate and wise, Rabbi Kushner is a master of the story that heals."

--Deborah Tannen, author of You're Wearing That?: Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation



"An articulate, no-nonsense treatise.... A readably inspirational homily leavened with subtle humor.... Kushner's book can serve to fortify us in times of loss and frustration."

--The Jerusalem Report
