Excellent book overall. We are what we make of the world.
I had a small problem with the idea of randomness. (And infinity). Hard concept for mortals like us to swallow. We want Beginnings &endings, and explanations because we are human. Just by reading this book we are searching for answers and explanations. Compassion, patience, and tolerance are great as long as no one is hurt.

I read this in one sitting-- it was very thought-provoking. Kushner's view of God as all-good but not omnipotent might offend some, but it is an interesting idea. The most important takeaway I got from Kushner's book was that when faced with evil and suffering people should ask themselves "What do I do now?" rather than "Why did this happen to me?/What did I do to deserve this?"

Good book with some very interesting and useful ideas but definitely not for everybody, specially if your brand of religion is of the less tolerant variety
