Intended for anyone that has suffered great loss of any sort and is trying to find meaning behind the pain. Rabbi Gewirtz uses a spiritual approach rather than a religious one, and that’s what makes this book work. At no time does the book rely on a “God has a plan,” “God works in mysterious ways” or a “God is testing you” approach. Instead, Gewirtz decries that mindset as offensive and irresponsible—making this book refreshing and relatable.
