Review

"Clear some space on your bookshelf for Mitch Albom's, Have a Little Faith, the story of a faith journey that could become a classic. Those who were born into faith, have lost faith, or are still searching will all be engaged and challenged by this powerful story of "finding faith" in relationships with others and with something greater than ourselves. Never satisfied with easy answers or soft platitudes, Mitch explores some of life's greatest mysteries and unanswered questions with great honesty, depth and self reflection."—Jim Wallis, CEO and Founder of Sojourners and author of The Great Awakening

Mitch Albom does it again!!! I've read all of Mitch's books and have garnered insight into my own faith as well as others. Mitch has shown that every human being has a story, many of which relate to faith, be it what it is. This book is a reflection of not only faith but trust, in our one God. It reinforces our belief that at the end of the day, if we surrender to God's will, all will be okay. In our daily lives, there are challenges to each and every one of us..this is the story of only two such people, whose lives will enrich yours, and allow you to believe, and trust, in our one God. If you are on 'a faith sabbitical' this book will lead you back...as it did Mitch. Having experience the loss of my husband quite suddenly in his 40's a year ago, I questioned my faith. I don't anymore.I find the blessings that he's left me....much the same as Mitch has found at the end of this book. Thanks for sharing the stories of these remarkable people Mitch. This book is a true blessing.

Title: Have A Little Faith
Author: Mitch Albom
Publisher: Hyperion
Pages: 249
Source: Personal Copy

'Have a Little Faith' was a heart-warming read. Mitch Albom writes an incredible story of an aging Rabi, and an African American pastor man who was addicted to drugs but managed to turn his life around. In the middle we have Mitch himself, learning, observing and growing. The book beginning with one question 'Will you do my Eulogy?' Mitch is concerned, confused and a little turned off from that morbid question. He believes that he is not the right man for the job, and why would his Rabi decide to ask him? Mitch does not decide right away to plan his eulogy, he agrees to meet with his Rabi for a few weeks and get to know him on a personal level. A few weeks, turned into a few years. Does he write the eulogy? Yes. Does this book turn out to be more about the Eulogy? Yes. Mitch recounts his own struggles with religion. He profiles his Rabi, and a convict turned pastor. Each has their own story and their own inspirational tales. One thing is clear in this story, it does not matter which religion you come from. Each should respect and love one another. One quote I loved was 'May your god, and our god bless you.'

I agree, I think there is comfort in religion. I felt that this book helped me with my own faith. Religions all have one thing in common: faith. Hope is what we need when our world is confusing. Faith supports and sustains many of us. While reading this book I was mesmerized. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this one, especially for someone who is struggling with their faith.

Here are some wonderful quotes from the book.

' It is far more comforting to think God listened and said No, than to think that nobody's out there.' P.

I generally like Mitch Albom's books so I wanted to give this a read. As a lot of books do, given the time constraints of reality, this one languished on my To-Read list. I ended up finding a copy on a somewhat lazy weekend recently and ended up finishing it within 24 hours and am really glad to have done so.

The story captivated me. While I was expecting to look for some sort of message in the book, I ended up enjoying it for the simple pleasure of "hearing" a story. I liked the way the author revealed little bits about his chief protagonists here and there. I usually don't really like that type of storytelling but it really worked well for me here. I found myself engaged and curious about what was going to happen next.

I liked the fact that the author really seemed to put himself out there and recognize his own human quirks and biases. This didn't feel like Mr. Albom preaching to us readers but rather a glimpse into part of his life wherein he seems to have learned a little about himself and the people around him. I guess that's why I ended the story so much; I identify fairly well with the author. I also liked the fact that unlike some mysteries or dramas I didn't find myself guessing at what happened next; I really just enjoyed finding out in due time.

And yes I did get a simple message from the book. Essentially it was that good people do exist regardless of faith and that prejudgements are tough to overcome. But the message, in my opinion, was less important than the simple journey.

A book that puts life and death into a whole new perspective for me! I learned life lessons that were unique, and the fact that the Jewish Faith has a lot for us to learn, as do other Faiths. I have highly recommended it for my Brother in law, who Himself is a Minister, and struggling with Cancer. I feel this will help him in his battle. Thank-you Mitch for your writings! I have enjoyed each and every one of them!

It is an excellent story line. The author is not only writing of experiences he has lived through over the years but takes the reader with bringing back memories of your past family life. It also shows how one can change from a very bad beginning to becoming a person who is respected and vs lied by his commhnu 6th. Definitely would recommend this book.

I purchased "Have a Little Faith" by Mitch Albom, after receiving a recommendation to read this book.This was such an uplifting novel that I couldn't put down.Such an emotional rollercoaster.I felt so good after reading this novel."Have a little Faith" is a true story nonfiction book that can open your eyes and heart, and allow you to realize how precious life is.It is about believing in something and the two men who taught him how.

The novel centers around three people: Mitch, a Jewish man who inter married who no longer had time for religion, and Albert (Reb), a Jewish rabbi, and Henry, a pastor of "I am my Brother's Keeper Ministry", an intercity church. The Reb was Mitch's rabbi growing up. Both men play a very important part in Mitch's life.

Albert in the spring of 2000 was eighty two and had made a strange request of Mitch. "Will you do my eulogy?." Mitch had agreed to honor his request but wanted to get to know him better. And there starts the journey...

I am very proud to have had the honor of reading this book. Everybody should read this book...and they will never be the same.
