Have a Little Faith: A True Story

6 Ratings: 4.2
A 2009 book by Mitch Albom.

Starred Review. Albom delivers a command audio performance. He brings his two clergymen-protagonists-an elderly rabbi from Albom's home synagogue and an African-American pastor leading a ministry to Detroit's homeless population-to vivid life … see full wiki

I may be the only person in America who hadn't yet read Mitch Albom. If so, he has officially saturated the market as I just finished Have a Little Faith.       Albom writes poignantly without pretentious wordiness but instead his factual sportswriter training comes through. In Have A Little Faith he writes three connected stories. One is about a rabbi, Mitch's only rabbi, who asks Mitch to write his date-to-be-determined eulogy. Mitch doesn't know "the Reb" outside …

It is true that this book’s title is have a little faith, with no capital letters, and seems to focus on faith. However, it would be more truthful to say that its theme is “coping,” a word that I did not find in the book, and “love” and “hope,” two words found in the volume’s last sentence. The last word, and probably the books principal theme, is “hope.” One might wonder why Albom, the best-selling author of Tuesdays with Morrie and …

Have a Little Faith is the story of two men. Albert Lewis (Mitch Albom's childhood Rabbi from New Jersey) and Henry Covington (an inner-city priest in Detroit). Two men who really have nothing in common except for their faith and the inspiration they bring to their congregation and those who they are in contact with.    Mitch no longer resides in Jersey and finds it rather odd that he is asked by his Rabbi, Albert Lewis (a/k/a "The Reb"), to write his eulogy. Firstly, it's been …

Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom is a true story about understanding what faith really means. When Albom's rabbi, nicknamed Reb, asks him to give the eulogy at his funeral, Albom determines to know this Man of God better so he can do the task well. Over the course of eight years, he spends time learning about the Reb's life and faith which in turn makes him re-evaluate his own. As part of a way of giving back to his adopted hometown of Detroit, he creates a fund to help out organizations that …

Have A Little Faith makes me think about the importance of faith in my life. I don't read the Bible on a regular basis, but the Bible verses and quotes in this book are very thoughtful. Everyone has the ability to help other people and influence lives, no matter what faith they believe in. This is the most important thing I learned from reading this book. Another important lesson in this book is to live life to the fullest and to appreciate everything in life.    Albom profiles …
