Overcoming Life's Disappointments | [Harold S. Kushner]

Overcoming Life's Disappointments

Harold S. Kushner turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith. Moses towers over all others in the Old Testament; he is the man on the mountaintop to whom God speaks with unparalleled intimacy, and he leads his people out of bondage. But he is also deeply human, someone whose soaring triumphs are offset by frustration and longing; his people ignore his teachings, he is denied entrance to the Promised Land, his family suffers. But he overcomes.

Publisher's Summary

Harold S. Kushner turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith. Moses towers over all others in the Old Testament; he is the man on the mountaintop to whom God speaks with unparalleled intimacy, and he leads his people out of bondage. But he is also deeply human, someone whose soaring triumphs are offset by frustration and longing; his people ignore his teachings, he is denied entrance to the Promised Land, his family suffers. But he overcomes.

Through the example of Moses' remarkable resilience, we learn how to weather the disillusionment of dreams unfulfilled, the pain of a lost job or promotion, a child's failures, divorce or abandonment, and illness. We learn how to meet all disappointments with faith in ourselves and the future, and how to respond to heartbreak with understanding rather than bitterness and despair.

This is an audiobook of spiritual wisdom, as practical as it is inspiring.

Don't miss out on Harold Kushner's When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

    "Excellent book"

    Rabbi Kushner's book is excellent and reminds the often forgotten thing that we need to have the humility to accept the disappointments in life and appreciate the things that have been given to us more. There is a stress on the fact that there must be balance between trying to changing the world and one's responsibilities to one's own family.
