Product Description

From Harold S. Kushner, a book of spiritual wisdom - as practical as it is inspiring. 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.

From the life of Moses, Kushner gleans principles that can help us deal with the problems we encounter. 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.

Publisher's Description

From the author of the #1 bestseller When Bad Things Happen to Good People, a guide to being our best selves, even when things don’t turn out as we had hoped.

Kushner turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith — the lessons that teach us how to overcome the disappointments that life inherently brings. We can learn how to meet all disappointments with faith in ourselves and the future, and how to respond to heartbreak — how to weather the disillusionment of dreams unfulfilled, the pain of a lost job, divorce or abandonment, illness, and more — with understanding rather than bitterness and despair. With Kushner’s signature warmth, Overcoming Life’s Disappointments is a book of spiritual wisdom — as practical as it is inspiring.

Editorial Reviews

“No human relationship is without betrayal, irritation and annoyance, but Kushner makes clear that it’s what we do about such obstacles that matter.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Compassionate and wise, Rabbi Kushner is a master of the story that heals.”
—Deborah Tannen, author of You’re Wearing That?: Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation

“An articulate, no-nonsense treatise.... A readably inspirational homily leavened with subtle humor.... Kushner's book can serve to fortify us in times of loss and frustration.”
