'Will you do my eulogy?'
With those words, Mitch Albom begins his long-awaited return to non-fiction. His journey to honour the last request of a beloved clergyman ultimately leads him to rekindle his own long-ignored faith.
Albom spends years exploring churches and synagogues, the suburbs and the city, the 'us' versus 'them' of religion. Slowly, he gravitates to the inner-city pastor of a crumbling church that houses the homeless and is stunned at how similar belief can be. As his own beloved cleric slowly lets go, Albom writes his final farewell, having learned that a faithful heart comes in many forms and places.

"An absolute wonder - tender, transporting and deeply moving." (Scott Turow)
I really enjoyed this book. Very easy to read. I found it very educational. It gave the listener an insight into the Jewish faith. I learnt that we are more alike than different. The author has a great sense of humour and this adds to the enjoyment.
I loved it, well written as all Mitch Albom's books, touching and thought provoking. A true story that truly touched me!

Mitch's way of sharing his heart with the listener
The five people you'll meet in heaven!! Because it is one of Mitch's other good books challenging the questions of faith
There are to many!!! If you have 140 emotions, Mitch will take you through all of them in one book
The way Mitch shares hisnthoughts, every singlenthoughts moved me
Read it, listen to it!!!!! Enjoy it !!!
I always find what Mitch Albom writes heartwarming, and I was not disappointed by this book. It is similar to Tuesdays with Morrie, but a different twist. Definitely a lovely listen, and great company for a few short hours. Thanks Mr. Albom.
I found this book basic. Mitch's experience does not surprise me. It's nothing new as many Rabi's or church Pasteur's are somewhat inspiring. The book is short and not a terrible read. Mitch is a good writer of course, You just have to read Tuesday's with Morrie to know that and if you haven't read Tuesday's with Morrie, this book is no where near as good. The books is Just very simple. Great for teenage kids or new church goers. The book donates a certain percentage of it's revenue to a charity.
I have read this book and now listened to it a number of time. This is truly a book I find inspirational. Although it centers around religion and faith, it's more about faith in humanity and I found it uplifting.
