Kushner, a rabbi, wrote this book a few years after the death of his son. He wrote for people who still wanted to believe in God after being hurt by life but whose anger made it difficult for them to hold onto their faith & be comforted by religion. Some of the chapters in this book are: “Why the Righteous Suffer”, “Sometimes There is no Reason”, “No Exceptions for Nice People”, “God Can’t do Everything, but He can do Some Important Things”, & “What Good, Then, is Religion?”.
