OVERCOMING LIFE'S DISAPPOINTMENTS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Harold S. Kushner

Philosophy & Religion • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Rabbi Harold S. Kushner is best known for his book WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE. This book is about living about one’s personal destiny. Kushner uses as his focus the life of Moses, not for his great achievements, but for his disappointments and how he overcame them to become the best person he could be. That is the challenge for all of us, he writes. Kushner’s style is to tell a biblical story, then discuss its context and potential meaning, and then expand on it as it applies to modern lives. The author’s voice is pleasant and easy to listen to, and he varies it effectively, adding emotion and occasional volume where needed. His reading clearly reflects his experiences as a rabbi. His message is powerful, and the presentation is compelling. R.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
