    " So interesting to read the analysis of the Book of Job, and to think about God and religion. Thoughts on why Ina world of a loving and just god do bad things happen to good people. Rabbi Kushner wrote about this topic in 1981, and revisits the topic with new insights. "

    " I enjoyed the discussion of this; Kushner thinks very critically about Job and the impulses that drive him and the bigger mythical implications surrounding human origin. "

    " A book I read right after my Grandmother died, helped out a lot to understand things. Gives a history of how others view God and his own view of God as self-limiting in our Universe. "
