Have a Little Faith Description

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 readers everywhere.

Albom s first nonfiction book since Tuesdays with Morrie, Have a Little Faith begins with an unusual request an eighty two 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 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.

Have a Little Faith is a book about a life s purpose about losing belief and finding it again about the divine spark inside us all It is one man s journey, but it is everyone s story.

Ten percent of the profits from this book will go to charity, including The Hole In The Roof Foundation, which helps refurbish places of worship that aid the homeless.
