Love audiobooks. Mystery and suspense novels are the ones I enjoy the most.
I listened to this book for our book club. Some have said they couldn't get into it but I have enjoyed it. This might be because I caught the movie made on it so I knew what it is about. I got the movie to watch at our next meeting.
On my quest to the better things in life! Health, Wealth, Love, & Happiness!
This books was recommended to me by my sister who had been struggling with her faith and I loved it! No matter what religion, God is a teacher of Love.
Mother of 2 teens, alternate between reading for educational enrichment and pure pleasure. Like to run, bike, hike, and dance.
Loved the message, a quick read with bang for your buck. I will change things in my life because of it.
Originally I had to read this book for a college class but it was so moving. I felt like I was a part of the church watching the story of Mitch, the Reb, Henry, and Cass. I don't read much but this book was such a year jerker. Whether you're religious or not you will enjoy this book if you're looking for a heartwarming story.
Another great book from Mitch Albom. He really gets you involved with the stories and I feel like I know these people. Thanks for writing and reading the book, it really gave the flavor of the people to it. Thanks for sharing those eight years with us.
A beautiful story about faith and the God of all of us. I found it very touching and am thankful that I got to know Mitch's Rabbi.
I would. I bought this as one of the buy one get one book deals not really expecting much out of it, and I was pleasantly surprised and moved by much of the story and the heart of the people in the story. It also helped me to increase my faith as well as have a lot more grace for those who follow different faiths.
I don't know, this isn't like a book I would ordinarily purchase.
Amazing Grace from broken people.
I loved the Rabbi and the background story about Mitch. The second story was a contrast and gave more interest. I want to know more of that congregation in Detroit
I like that Mitch wrote himself in the story. I like his reference to Tuesday with Morrie.
Yes but this was my first Then I got Tuesday with Morrie. I listen to either of them over and over I never get tired of these two books
Are their anymore true stories by Mitch Albom> I love his voice too
It was a great read during the holiday season. Mitch presents a story of faith from a couple of different perspectives...the Jewish rabbi and the Pastor of a struggling church in Detroit. Good story with lessons of life woven through.
"Have a Little Faith" is two inspiring, true stories – one about a rabbi who spends his whole life at one synagogue in New Jersey and the other about a Christian pastor in the poorest part of Detroit who is a reformed NYC drug user and dealer. Central messages include: God is bigger than any single religion; mercy, compassion, and acts of love are universal ways to worship God; addictions are especially difficult to overcome and can cause tremendous damage to one’s life; sing more when talking to people; value positive legacies; be optimistic – have a little faith.
Favorites quotes from the book (possibly paraphrased):
“Everyone is a person of God.”
“You are not your past.”
“Picture the holiest person you know…and now picture them wearing ragged clothes hiding behind some trash cans holding a shotgun and begging God not to send them to Hell.”
