Rabbi Leder's New Book More Beautiful Than Before:How Suffering Transforms US


Every one of us sooner or later walks through hell.

In the spirit of such classics as When Bad Things Happen to Good People, A Grief Observed, and When Things Fall Apart, Rabbi Leder's new book More Beautiful Than Before: How Suffering Transforms Us examines the many ways we can transform physical, psychological, or emotional pain into a more beautiful and meaningful life.

In the book's elegantly concise, beautifully written, and deeply inspiring words, Rabbi Leder guides us through pain’s stages of surviving, healing, and growing to help us all find meaning in our suffering. Drawing on his experience as a spiritual leader, the wisdom of ancient traditions, modern science, and stories from his own life and others’, he shows us that when we must endure, we can, and that there is a path for each of us that leads from pain to wisdom. “Pain cracks us open,” he writes. “It breaks us. But in the breaking, there is a new kind of wholeness.” This powerful book inspires in us all a life worthy of our suffering; a life gentler, wiser, and more beautiful than before.

More Beautiful Than Before: How Suffering Transforms Us is published by Hay House and can purchased at bookstores and on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/More-Beautiful-Than-Before-Transforms/dp/1401953123
