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...more
"In the end, the question gets answered." - Mitch Albom
I just finished reading Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom. I'm not sure why I picked up this novel to read. Perhaps I was bored and needed something to do, perhaps I was looking for something to feel a void; or perhaps, just perhaps, I needed a little bit of faith.
Have a Little Faith is an amazing story about a Rabbi, a Christian Minister, and a man with very little faith. This book will take you thro ...more
Saya pernah , begitu juga dengan Mitch Albom. Rasa jengah kerap muncul saat berdekatan orang-orang saleh (bahkan dalam kasus saya adalah orang tua saya sendiri) tersebut. Rasa takutkah itu? atau rasa malu?? Tetapi takut atau malu dari apa? Namun, yang pasti saya merasa menjadi ‘salah’ dan ‘kecil’ di antara mereka hingga takut diri saya sendiri akan lenyap.
Mitch Albom berhenti berlari da ...more
Quote yang sudah pernah saya dengar sebelumnya, kemarin baca lagi dari status updatenya mbak Lita dan quote di atas sangat melukiskan perasaan saya semalam ketika begadang menyelesaikan buku Mitch Albom terbaru Have a Little Faith. Penulis bahkan menyatakan "It is... the most important thing I’ve ever written,” . Di bukunya kali ini Mitch Albom mengajak kita untuk menyelami iman, cinta, toleransi a ...more
Not overly melodramatic, or too nostalgic or sentimental, not even really distasteful, I like his writing, but just a little too much. Like a glass of sweet tea that is just too full of sugar, needs a good squirt of lemon to knock it down a bit.
Having said that, I like Albom and his writing. I like that he's a baseball fan. He's worldly, observant and funny - he's a sportswriter after all, ...more
I'm really glad I chose to get the book. It was a very insightful and thought provoking read for me. Many parts of the book moved me to tears, and I loved the sermons. I could relate them with everyday life! I don't believe in any religion, so I started reading with a little trepidation, afraid it would start talking about converting etc. But boy was I wrong! This book is about faith, not just any specific religion.. but believing in something bigger than yourself. It'll make ...more

Awalnya adalah sebuah pertanyaan, dan menjadi pertanyaan terakhir
"Maukah kau menyampaikan eulogi untukku?"
Pertanyaan itu disampaikan oleh seorang Rabi/Guru/Pendeta/Pastor/Pemimpin Agama kepada Mitch Albom.

When I was in Young Women’s, it seemed that whenever our planned Mutual activities fell apart, the go-to Plan B was to pull some Books of Mormon out of a storage closet and have us write our testimonies in them. At that time in my life, I had zero qualms about standing in front of a congregation on Fast Sunday and bearing my testimony, or talking in a fireside about my conversion to the gospel, but for some reason my mind always blanked when it cam ...more
However, at the very end, Albom’s message became very ...more
Recently, I've decided I want to spend my time on the road listening to things that are perhaps more enlightened than the latest thriller or romance or even the a.m. radio crew. And so I happened across this on the library shelves, and decided it might be uplifting. It was.
It isn't that it sa ...more

5 hours ago I felt that this was one of the best books I ever read.
Now.......I question it, because I just had book club and this reaction was not felt by everyone else. But I question everything I feel, and this book did teach me not to do that.
This book taught me a lot about myself and about how to listen to others. That it's worth taking 10 minutes of your day to talk with a stranger, to listen to a friend, to call someone you haven't in a long time.
I wondered why this book touched me ...more
The story is about a rabbi (who's usually called "Reb" in the book, but is actually called Mr. Albert Lewis), a pastor (called Henry Covington) and a man who has lost his faith - Albom himself. What I absolutely loved about this book, was that it's non-fiction. So every little silly thing one of the characters do ...more
It made me laugh, it made me cry (more than I expected), and despite not being proud of being a slow reader- I am glad I took my time with this one. Others might have been able to finish the entire book in a day at most, but I couldn't speed through it. I took my time, and felt the weight of every word. Every passage, every quote, every question and answer, the monologues and dialogues, the proud statements and the shameful conf ...more
Mitch Albom is given a request to present the eulogy for a Rabbi he had grew up with and mentored by as a child growing up. After years of seeing faith not as a need, Albom sets himself to get to know this man better before he could present something decent. Have a Little Faith is a true story about a man’ ...more
Have a Little Faith is all about a Rabbi and a Pastor. People might think that since this book delves on religion, it may be preachy or something. I assure you, it is not. The story was presented in such a way that a normal person would be able to relate to it and not be averse with it. Mitch Albom, as always, produced another touching and m ...more
