it was amazing
Read from December 31, 2011 to January 01, 2012

What a great book. Albom introduces us to two men who at first seem to be so different but in the end were so much alike. The first is Albert Lewis who is Mitch's rabbi from his childhood. He is in his 80s and asks Mitch to give his eulogy. Mitch who has stepped away from his Jewish faith spends the next 8 years getting to know Reb before he dies. The second man is Henry Covington who is an African American minister in Detroit. You hear Henry's story about violence, drugs, prison and how he finally gave his life to Jesus. He then tried to get a run down church in Detroit on its feet. He gave his life for the poor and homeless who were much like he was.

In all of this Albom shows us why faith is so important and how these two men lived their lives out with their faith in God. What an awesome book that reads quickly. Read it-you won't regret it.
