Overview

"If there were a quick fix for our trouble globe, it would be the profoundly tolerant message, teeming with humanity, at the heart of this book."
-Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul

From the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, comes an inspiring new bestseller that puts human feelings of guilt ad inadequacy in perspective - and teaches us how we can learn to accept out selves and others even when we are less than perfect.

Kushner begins by offering a radically new interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve, which he sees as a tale of Paradise Outgrown rather than Paradise Lost: eating from the Tree of Knowledge was not an act of disobedience, but a brave step forward toward becoming human, complete with the richness of work, sexuality, and child-rearing as well as a sense of our mortality.

Drawing on modern literature, psychology, theology, and his won thirty years of experience as a congregational rabbi, Kushner reveals how acceptance and forgiveness can change our relationships with the most important people in our lives and help us meet the bold and rewarding challenge of being human.
