Overview

"Why didn't G-d rescue the victims of 9/11?

Why did He let children die in the Holocaust?

Is suffering ennobling?

Is it even OK to question G-d?

In this book, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach tackles the ultimate, timeless questions that go to the heart of the human condition - and arrives at some surprising answers.

I Shall Not Die For I Shall Live examines the human experience of tragedy and pain, with reference to the ultimate text on suffering - the Book of Job - as well as to modern-day examples drawn from today's headlines.

Rabbi Shmuley shares his reaction to the answers proffered by Harold Kushner's best-selling Why Bad Things Happen to Good People, and then details his own responses, guiding us to the conclusion that challenging G-d and His actions is not just our right, but our foremost obligation as human beings. This is practical philosophy for the twenty-first century, with a concrete action plan for dealing with suffering and successfully navigating the travails of life with grace, passion, and integrity.
