How can we find hope and faith through difficult times? Can a person actually grow through suffering? What is the correct Torah approach to challenges?
Hashem loves us even more than we love ourselves, yet everyone faces challenges and experiences difficulties. We are told that not only our good fortune but also our suffering is an expression of Hashem’s love. But how could this be?
Exploring the life-changing wisdom of our Sages, Growth Through Darkness reveals Hashem’s hidden kindness behind the difficulties we experience and how we can use these tests to bring forth our hidden potential.
Quoting extensively from the greatest names of our illustrious history, Rabbi Trenk demonstrates how to view the very obstacles and impediments we face as means of growth and improvement.
There will certainly be great benefit and tremendous chizzuk for anyone who reads this.
