When an eighty-two-year-old rabbi from Albom's old hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy, Albom goes back to his nonfiction roots and 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.

    What Dreams May Come by 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.

I enjoyed this book more than I expected. It mainly tells us the philosophy of Rabbi Albert Lewis, and Mitch Albom's responses are also thought provoking. Much of the world situation has changed greatly since 2009 when this was written, but it still seems worthwhile to be conscouisly grateful and hopeful. There are also personal details regarding Reverend Henry Covington who experienced a very difficult life, but was able to help a variety of people. Hope was very important to both of these men. ( )

I now hold Mitch Albom's writing in high regard. Whether it is because he is genuinely inspirational or because I need his stories at this point in my life, I am not sure. I am neither a Christian nor a Jew, as I have stated in my previous evaluations of his writings. This, in my opinion, speaks even more highly of his writing. The tales of his early years, his singling, loving Rabi, and Henry, a pastor with a unique backstory, illustrated how faith, despite its differences, is a universal thing. The memoirs shared in this book had me crying, laughing, and overall contemplating my own relationship with faith and religion. To be a true person of faith is far more than spouting scripture and can come at all ages. ( )

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.

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.”
