Nine Essential Things I've Learned about Life
Nine Essential Things I've Learned about Life | Harold S. Kushner
1 post | 2 read | 3 to read
"A profoundly inspiring yet practical guide to well-being from one of modern Judaism's most beloved sages.As a congregational rabbi for half a century and the bestselling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and twelve other books on faith, ethics, and how to translate the timeless wisdom of religious thought into dealing with everyday challenges, Harold Kushner knows a thing or two about living a good life. In this compassionate new work, Kushner distills nine essential lessons from the sum of his teaching, study and experience, offering a lifetime's worth of spiritual food for thought, pragmatic advice, inspiration for better living, and strength for trying times. With vital, original insights into everything from belief ("there is no commandment in Judaism to believe in God"), to conscience (the Garden of Eden story as you've never heard it), to mercy ("forgiveness is a favor you do yourself, not a favor to the person who offended you"), grounded in Kushner's brilliant readings of Scripture, history and popular culture, Nine Essential Things I've Learned About Life is a capstone addition to Kushner's oeuvre"--

Harold S. Kushner shares the wisdom of 80 years of religious life as an orthodox rabbi in this lovely book. My hope tank was nearly empty after a year of Trump and this gave me a much needed boost. If your emotional health needs recharging I recommend you read this short book! “Our souls yearn to be guided, to be focused on what makes us human.” 🕎✡️💟
