Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People addresses one of the most frequently asked questions of all time. After the passing of his wife at a very young age, leaving him with four children under the age of nine, Rabbi Shaul Rosenblatt spent years finding the balance between his overwhelming pain of loss and his concurrent appreciation that everything God does is for the best. Why would an all-loving 'good' God do something seemingly so 'bad' to him and his young children? The answer is that He didn't.

With this premise, Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People expertly tackles the most challenging topic of all time. With a light and sometimes humorous style, and through sharing his own personal story of loss and recovery, Rabbi Rosenblatt provides an answer to the almost unanswerable question. He will challenge your conceptions as he delivers a remarkable and powerful argument that in fact, bad things simply don't happen to good people!

Why Bad things Don't Happen to Good People is a must-have in every Jewish home!

  3. Unbelievable book that really gave me chizuk during my mother's illness with cancer.
    I would really recommend this book to anyone needing to understand pain, difficulties and illness. I found this book in the bookstore the day I found out my mother was diagnosed with cancer and it has helped guide me through the process of caring for her ever since.
