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!

    "A JOY"

    And always a JOY to have the author narrate his own work. Encouraging to see how God draws us into a life of faith.

    "Outstanding Read"

    I love this author! I had no doubt this book was going to be entertaining and engaging. And, that it was! I appreciated his investment with interviewing the prominent figures in this book. He wrestles with his expectations of religion, the filters he grew up with, for which he ultimately gleams an enlightened perspective about people, their experiences and how even the most lost can change and find their way home again. It was a beautifully written book capturing the true meaning and journey of faith intertwined with the reality of human nature. I highly recommend this read.

    "Give me that Religion"

    This book was comforting. Sometimes rather deep. Tried understanding as best I could. At times I was lost. Mitch Allbom is
    excellent at reading his books.

    "A really good human interest story"

    Mitch Albom is an excellent writer and more importantly seems to be a genuine and caring humanitarian. All of his books convey deep thought into the human condition, this one focuses on faith through the prism of different religions and explores the vast similarities as opposed to minor differences. It asks the age old questions about faith - why do bad things happen to good people - but it doesn't present some kind of trite answer. It explores life experiences and mortality in relation to faith. It is a rally good listen, not too long (4 hours). Albom does an excellent job narrating the book as well,which lends authenticity to the content. Recommended.

    Story
    "inspirational"

    I read this book when it first came out in print and I was a big fan. I loved this book even more after listening to it. I am not sure if it was the singing narrator or where I am in my faith's journey, but I am ready to listen to it again. Albom illustrates and entertains, all the while educating his reader on the importance of God, love, and family. God is hope. Amen to that.

    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.
