Have a Little Faith: A True Story de Mitch Albom

  1. 10
    What Dreams May Come de Richard Matheson (DeDeNoel)
    DeDeNoel: Matheson is a genius story teller. This novel is about death, the afterlife and love. It is beautifully written and I think it would compliment Have a Little Faith.

Albom's Have a Little Faith is another exquisite 'pearl' to add to his other beautiful 'pearls of wisdom.'
Albom interviews 2 very different men of faith: Rabbi Albert Lewis and Pastor Henry Covington, but with so much in common.

Gently Albom asks virtually all the questions about religion most of us want to know. The responses he gets illuminate the faith, love and passion within the hearts and souls of Lewis and Covington, and why they attract thousands of people to them.

This lovely book is concise, insightful, filled with human kindness and understanding. Powerfully dazzling!

Mitch Albom has a way of telling a touching story and making the reader connect with the characters. In that respect, I enjoyed this book, in that I felt like I truly knew Reb and that he was telling his stories directly to me.

On the other hand, I felt this was Albom's weakest attempt so far. I thought his other books told much stronger stories and created stronger connections between reader and character. I would still recommend this as a quick read when you need some inspiration though! ( )

I like this better than the other Albom books I have read. I find it honest and down-to-earth. ( )

Mitch Albom is an inspirational writer, and I don't quite have a bookshelf for that category. I enjoyed it, I was touched by it. I recommend it. I mentioned it to my family this evening. Woven through this book is the author's gradual understanding of how Jews and Christians and people without faith, even without hope learn to relate. ( )

These are true stories about three people; Reb, a retired and seriously ill rabbi; Henry, a pastor in a decaying church and ultimately the book is about the author.

Albom is a lapsed Jew, he followed the faith as a child, and then went off the rails a little bit, married outside the faith and rarely set foot in a synagogue again. Out of the blue, his rabbi from that time called him and asked if he would write his eulogy. Surprised as he was by this, he agreed and went back to meet him to make some notes.
Reb has a way of communicating with people that is very special and what develops between them is quite unique. Albom talks openly, and asks some tough questions of him. Their relationship is one of warmth and admiration, and Albom ends up with pages and pages of notes.
Henry is a bad guy turned good. He is a huge man and has been in the past a petty thief, a drug dealer, a drug user and al round thug. Even though he had contact with the church, he never took that extra step and committed. Unit one day something in his life made him stop and walk a different path. He is now a pastor at a Detroit church that is badly in need of maintenance, and his congregation is made up from homeless people.

These two men of different faiths share many common values. Albom tells their life stories in parallel, as well as snapshots from their pasts.

When he comes to write the eulogy for Reb, he takes one look at his reams of notes, sets them aside and writes from his heart.

This is the second book of his that I have read in a handful of days. He writes with effortless aplomb, without a wasted word. These are two men that he grew close to; who sought to do and not talk.

Albom writes, as he always does, with a loving hand, revealing great intimacies that touch the heart. Like TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, HAVE A LITTLE FAITH reminds us that, despite our differences, we are all human beings experiencing life, love, hatred and death; with any luck in our lifetimes, we will “be satisfied,” “be grateful.”
