Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, an illuminating book about fear - and what we can do to overcome it.

An inescapable component of our lives, fear comes in many guises: fear of unemployment; fear of aging, illness, losing beauty; fear of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. In uncertain times, coping with these fears can be especially challenging, but in this indispensable, hopeful book, Harold S. Kushner teaches us to confront, master, and even embrace fear for a more fulfilling life.

Drawing on the teachings of religious and secular literature and on the true stories of people who have faced their fears, Kushner helps us to see that fear can present us with extraordinary opportunities - to connect with our emotions, rethink our values, and change our lives, and the world, for the better. For those who fear helplessness, he suggests empowerment: through prayer, service, and education. For those who fear for mankind's future, he insists on hope and pragmatic measures, such as working to protect the environment. For those who fear death, he proposes life - lived boldly and purposefully.

In Conquering Fear, we are again inspired by Harold S. Kushner's wisdom, at once deeply spiritual and eminently practical.

Rich with Harold Kushner's honest, practical eloquence, Conquering Fear is the right book at the right time. It will ease the heart and strengthen the mind of everyone who reads it! (Forrest Church, author of Love & Death)

What the Critics Say

Harold Kushner once again arms his readers to battle life's difficult moments by showing the strengths they already have inside them: this time courage is the quality-the courage to change, to accept, to fight, and to follow virtue. An inspiring book for our times. (Mitch Albom, author of Tuesdays with Morrie)

    "Not as good as his other books"

    This book is written with lesser passion than his other books which are outstanding i.e. when bad things happen to good people, living a life that matters, overcoming life's disappointments. This may be due to the fact that the book was suggested by the publishers and not the author himself as he mentions in the book itself. Some good parts here and there, but does not give the wholeness feeling that his other books give.

    "Life's meaning"

    With anectodal references and eloquent communicating, the good rabbi brings close to heart
    our darkest fears. With equal style he comforts us with our need to not be alone.
    Well worth the listening.
