Honest and optimistic, the 23rd psalm has an almost magical power to comfort and calm, and even to change your life, suggests the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Living a Life That Matters. Psalm 23 does not pretend that life is ever easy, notes Harold Kushner, but it offers a model for living in the world with faith and courage. Devoting individual chapters to such themes as "I Will Fear No Evil" and "My Cup Runneth Over," Kushner gracefully demonstrates how this work can sustain us through all aspects of life, from mundane jealousies to the death of a loved one, and even tragedies of global proportions.
