Why are the 57 words of the Twenty-third Psalm so popular? Rabbi Kushner thinks that in an increasingly dangerous and confusing world, they offer a comforting message of protection and hope for the eternal future. But the psalm also has requirements: Embedded in its message are expectations to do more than accept comfort. These words expect us to act responsibly and with courage and creativity when life paints us into a corner, and invite us to look for ways to serve God and others on good days and bad. The author's comprehension of personal loss is palpable, and his empathy piercing and comforting. Kushner's nuanced and highly effective audio presentation will lift up people in every type of difficult circumstance. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
