What if our beliefs were not what divided us, but what pulled us together?

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.

Mitch Albom is a favorite writer of mine. He never disappoints! This true story shares his journey in rediscovering his faith heritage and expanding his beliefs to be more inclusive of all people/religions. Through interviews with his childhood Rabbi and a church founder in his home city he discovers the thread that connects us all through commitment and service. It’s an easy, thought provoking read which I found inspiring.
