Synopsis
In the beginning, there was a question... With those words, Mitch Albom launches his long-awaited return to nonfiction. Have a Little Faith is Albom's first true-life story since Tuesdays with Morrie, and like that classic tale, this book explores life through a unique journey: Mitch's search for the right words to eulogize a Man of God. Albom takes his readers on a stirring, heartfelt mission to honor a last request and send a beloved rabbi off to heaven the way the cleric had done for so many before him. Along the way, Albom--who walked away from a deeply religious background as a young man--rekindles his own faith by sitting with and caring for the wise, funny, but slowly decaying man of the cloth. Together, they explore the things that pull us apart about faith, as well as the universal beliefs that pull us together: God, heaven, doubt, war, atheism,intermarriage, the "us" versus "them" of religion. Meanwhile, as Albom crafts his cleric's final sendoff, he accidentally engages with an inner-city pastor of a crumbling church, one that houses the homeless and collects no dues--as far from Albom's religious upbringing as possible. Skeptical at first, Albom begins to admire the pastor and his impoverished congregation. And as his own beloved cleric slowly lets go, Albom discovers that a faithful heart comes in many forms and from many places. Insightful, stirring, humorous, and heartbreaking, Have a Little Faith will make readers explore their own beliefs, and perhaps realize how much more we are alike than different. And as Albom fulfills his cleric's last request and tearfully asks God to welcome the man home, this book will surely become everyone's story.
