When Bad Things Happen to Good People (Abridged / Compact Disc, Abridged)
Where is God when you need him most?
Every day we see evidence of innocent people suffering from catastrophe and cruelty, and yet we can't understand or make sense of the question "why?" If there is a just and all powerful God, then why do bad things happen to good people?
Based on the nationally acclaimed bestseller, this program features the distinguished Rabbi Harold S. Kushner in a touching, heart-warming conversation. Inspired by the death of his 14-year-old son and his family's shared ordeal, Rabbi Kushner tells how to deal spiritually with an unfair loss or tragedy. He gives us wise and compassionate advice on how we can cope, what we should do about our anger and how we can keep from feeling guilty that we are the cause of bad things that happen. Rabbi Kushner reaches out to people of all faiths as he offers a message of love and peace.
