Publisher's Summary

What if our beliefs were not what divided us, but what pulled us together? In Have a Little Faith, Mitch Albom offers a beautifully written story of a remarkable eight-year journey between two worlds - two men, two faiths, two communities - that will inspire listeners everywhere.

Albom's first nonfiction book since Tuesdays with Morrie, Have a Little Faith begins with an unusual request: an 82-year-old rabbi from Albom's old hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy. Feeling unworthy, Albom insists on understanding the man better, which throws him back into a world of faith he'd left years ago.

Meanwhile, closer to his current home, Albom becomes involved with a Detroit pastor - a reformed drug dealer and convict - who preaches to the poor and homeless in a decaying church with a hole in its roof.

Moving between their worlds, Christian and Jewish, African-American and white, impoverished and well-to-do, Albom observes how these very different men employ faith similarly in fighting for survival: the older, suburban rabbi embracing it as death approaches; the younger, inner-city pastor relying on it to keep himself and his church afloat.

As America struggles with hard times and people turn more to their beliefs, Albom and the two men of God explore issues that perplex modern man: how to endure when difficult things happen; what heaven is; intermarriage; forgiveness; doubting God; and the importance of faith in trying times. Although the texts, prayers, and histories are different, Albom begins to recognize a striking unity between the two worlds - and indeed, between beliefs everywhere.

In the end, as the rabbi nears death and a harsh winter threatens the pastor's wobbly church, Albom sadly fulfills the rabbi's last request and writes the eulogy. And he finally understands what both men had been teaching all along: the profound comfort of believing in something bigger than yourself.

    "Everyone should read this book!"

    This was the first Audio book I have ever "read" and I'm afraid I might have been spoiled. I can't imagine just reading this book instead of having Mitch Albom read it to me. The heart he puts into sharing this story is remarkable and extremely inspiring. The message is one that everyone should experience. We tell everyone we talk to that this book is a must-read, or better yet, a must-listen!

    Story
    "Faith and friendship are good for the soul"

    Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith is a powerful and beautifully written story chronicling Albom's relationship with his Rabbi who asks Albom to deliver his eulogy. The story contains universal themes of love, loss, questioning, seeking and hope.

    Beautifully interwoven is the story of Henry whose path on earth is vibrant, violent and unexpected.

    For anyone who has been either a student or a seeker, and who has found wisdom, understanding and inspiration from a beloved teacher, this story will touch your heart.

    "Hope, Love, Faith a must read"

    I love this book. It starts slow, but that background makes the story richer. I laughed and cried, and felt like I was part of the story. It touched my heart and soul.

    Story
    "If you only listen to one book this season..."

    What a wonderfully uplifting and powerful book. It's a perfect listen/read for the holiday season, and if you only listen to one book this season, let it be this one.

    This book is a reminder that faith and hope are necessary components of the human soul. It also helps us to better understand that we are all God's children, and that my faith and beliefs are not diminished by others who don't share them. We are to love and help those who don't look/act/live like we do, regardless of what we believe.

    This book is a short listen, and I can't recommend it highly enough.
