Most of us need to feel that we matter in some way; perhaps
this explains the high value placed on titles, corner offices, and even
fleeting celebrity. But most of us also need to feel that we are good people.
In this luminous yet practical book of spiritual advice, Harold Kushner bridges
the gap between these seemingly irreconcilable needs, showing us how even our
smallest daily actions can become stepping stones toward integrity.
Drawing on the stories of his own congregants, on
literature, current events, and, above all, on the Biblical story of Jacob, the
worldly trickster who evolves into a man of God—Kushner addresses some of the
most persistent dilemmas of the human condition: Why do decent people so often
violate their moral standards? How can we pursue justice without giving in to
the lure of revenge? How can we turn our relationships with family and friends
into genuine sources of meaning?
Persuasive and sympathetic, filled with humanity and warmth,
anecdotal and commonsensical, Living a Life That Matters inspires and uplifts.
