On The Challenges Of Life
- Common sense would seem to dictate that
the world should be run simply and clearly:
good people should be rewarded and bad
people should be punished.
- However, that's just not the way things are. Naturally, we wonder
why. Why did that wonderful person go through such yisurim? Why
do innocent children die? And why do evil people sometimes seem
to get off easy?
- This question is as ancient as the world itself. Dovid Hamelech
addressed it in chapter 73 of Tehillim, saying that this question often
knocks people off their feet and drives them off the path of Hashem.
Shlomo Hamelech writes repeatedly in Koheles that this is one of the
main reasons why people sin, since the difference between good and
bad is not apparent to them in this life. And this was one of Moshe
Rabbeinu's main questions to Hashem.
- Indeed, throughout the millennia, this gnawing question
continues to frustrate and discourage people from serving the
Creator properly. However, while we cannot fully understand G-d's
ways, Tanach and the statements of Chazal do offer glimpses into
the ways of Divine providence. There are answers to much of the
mystery. This comprehensive and easy-to-read book, written by a
master mechanech and bestselling author, shares core information
and key insights from Torah sources.
- Every Jew should be at peace with Hakadosh Baruch Hu, with the
full knowledge that He knows perfectly well what He needs to do,
and that - ultimately - all is for our good. In difficult times, this
fascinating book by Rabbi Dovid Sapirman is indispensable.
