Now, remind me again, good Rabbi, why does crap befall decent folk?
The compassionate author [Harold Kushner], who grieved the loss of his son Aaron, uses the Book of Job to present his case on how suffering happens.
Most readers of Job want to believe three things: that God is all-powerful, that God is just and fair, and that Job is a good person.
But those things can’t all be true. Not for the book to make sense.
