5 Stars Out Of 5
A fresh perspective
October 22, 2014
If you know anyone struggling with an illness or a recent loss, this is one of the best books out there!
Harold Kushner provides a lot of wisdom concerning Scripture, suffering, and the character of God.
My favorite imagery from the book is picturing God on your side. It reminds me of the Scripture, "if God is for us, who can be against us?" or a favorite from Romans 8 that "nothing can separate us from the love of God."
This book paints a Christ-centered picture of God. A God that is all-powerful, but is also all-loving.
I continue to recommend this book and Greg Boyd's book Is God To Blame? to every I can think of struggling with these kinds of questions :)
