From the PublisherHarold Kushner There is a kind of nourishment our souls crave, even as our bodies need the right foods, sunshine, and exercise.
The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) Thoughtful....richly concrete....Kushner invites his readers to rethink the role of religion in their lives.
Newsweek In Who Needs God, Kushner glides thoughtfully and literately from Elie Wiesel to William James to African mythology to make his case for God's role in our lives. The most compelling argument, not surprisingly, is...that only religion provides answers that enable people to confront their mortality.
Joyce Maynard Mademoiselle Here's a book about God and faith that is, surprisingly, ideal for the reader who has rejected religion.
The Sun (Baltimore) Kushner remains superbly rational...likable and persuasive....No mystical tangents here, either traditional or New Age.
Detroit Free Press There is a note of awe and humility in nearly all of his counseling, which has become a Kushner trademark. Listening rather than speaking in times of crisis and showing the need for morality rather than preaching about it are only two examples....Kushner is an author who speaks like an old friend of the family and promises never to mislead us with facile answers that fail to satisfy.
The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) Kushner invites his readers to rethink the role of religion in their lives, as a way of seeing that it provides an alternative to the widespread emptiness they confront....Who Needs God is richly concrete and nuanced...sensitive and instructive.
St. Louis Jewish Light Kushner powerfully explores the importance of God and religious faith in our daily lives. Who Needs God is written for all religions — those who have either lost their faith, drifted away from organized religion, or have difficulty believing that religion can be important in the 20th century.
Houston Post In his low-key, witty, wise-uncle style, Kushner argues most persuasively for the need of faith and religion in today's skeptical, anti-institutional climate.
National Review A winsomely presented argument....Kushner, more than Peale or Schuller, is particularly attractive in his sensitivity to...those who are trying to come to terms with tragedy in their lives.
