Have a Little Faith
This is Mitch Albom's first nonfiction book since Tuesday's with Morrie. Have a Little Faith opens with Albom facing an unusual request: an eighty-two-year-old rabbi from his old hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy. Albom begins meeting with this rabbi to understand his life better and begins to renew his relationship with the rabbi. Over time, these meetings become a re-connecting with his Jewish faith. At the same time, Albom begins a relationship with a Christian pastor of a broken-down impoverished congregation in Detroit. Through these two very different relationships, Albom explores how faith connects us all, despite our differences. As one editorial review said,
"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."
As an added bonus, it is important to note that 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.
