For anyone who has ever been hurt by life. "I knew that one day I would write this book. I would write it out of my own need to put into words some of the most important things I have come to believe and know. And I would write it to help other people who might one day find themselves in a similar predicament. I would write it for an those people who wanted to go on believing, but whose anger at God made it hard for them to hold on to their faith and be comforted by religion. And I would write it for an those people whose love of God and devotion to Him led them to blame themselves for their suffering and persuade themselves that they deserved it."-- Harold S. Kushner

Good book with some very interesting and useful ideas but definitely not for everybody, specially if your brand of religion is of the less tolerant variety
