"His tone will make readers feel personally welcomed into the rabbi's study for a comforting one-on-one chat." (Publishers Weekly)
I normally do not indulge in too many religious authors because they normally use too much religious rhetoric. Harold S. Kushner, who is not in the company of the rhetoric authors, explains line for line the 23rd Psalms. He balances religion, science and plain common sense, leading you to a better understanding of the Psalm and GOD's purpose behind the words. By educating the listener on the original Hebrew language in which the Psalm was written, Kushner enriches your understanding of what the Psalm states and how important it is in our spiritual lives. I encourage everyone that is focusing on his/her spirtual journey to listen to this book. Unlike some religious literature, it respects the reader because it offers ideas, rather than force idealogy. I loved this book so much, I went out and bought a copy for my shelf as well.
This is such a powerful presentation of the 23rd Psalm that could apply to any person of any denomination. It covers every aspect of life in a meaningful way that assures a person that one can survive. One can go on. It was so enriching that as soon as I completed the first pass I started it all over again. Absolutely refreshing! So very comforting. Entirely illuminating!
This is my favorite Psalm and I have read in many times.
I was so moved by Rabbi Kushners book that I went back to the Hebrew text and commentaries to better understand his sources.
Thank you Rabbi Kushner.
This powerful book speaks to my heart. Rabbi Harold Kushner's explanation and interpretation of the 23rd Psalm has added lasting meaning to my life. By exploring the Psalm line by line, Rabbi Kushner has enabled me to visualize the images in each line of the Psalm so that I can use it as a personal source for meditation. When I became nervous during a medical procedure, I recited the 23td Psalm to myself and it calmed me down so that I could relax. It is a gift, a tool, which I continue to use daily.
