"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 ...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
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. Moving between their worlds, Christian and Jewish, African-American and white, impoverished and well-to-do, Albom observes how these very different men employ faith similarly in fighting for survival: the older, suburban rabbi embracing ...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

Albom is the guy in the current mainstream writers. His works are all bestsellers and have been translated in many languages, sold in many countries and made ...more
A book that gifted me lot of amazing moments. Wonderfully written about lives. The Jewish Rabbi, Christian Pastor and many more lives. It is a book which can provide you lot of stunning moments.

Do your best with the present so you may be happy in ...more

Just watched the movie. It's about two parallel (real) stories; one on Rabbi Albert L. Lewis; the other on Henry Covington. The sportswriter is the intersecting point. He's been asked an eulogy by the Rabbi; yet, he'll get to know also a former drug-dealer and drug-addict, Henry Covington, now a minister in a Presbyterian, Detroit church, crumbling apart. While collecting data from the Rabbi's life, the sportswriter will witness change in himself.
The church gets rebuilt.
Life takes on a new ...more
When I was in Young Womens, 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 came ...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 ...more
Will you do my eulogy?"
This novel has stayed with me longer than it should, I always seemed to read a few pages and leave it be then come at it all over again.
But I like to believe that the ideal situation is when everything comes at its own at its perfect timing and my reading of this novel at that time was, indeed, the perfect time for it to be read.
The story of the novel is so simplistic, but again, in my personal opinion, simplicity has always led to ...more
However, at the very end, Alboms message became very ...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
This one, while very sentimental at times, provided ...more
So I like memoirs, a lot. And this one just gave me feels, the novel mainly is centered around Mitch who lost his faith as he aged, Reb (his childhood Rabbi) and Henry (a pastor who's overcome drug addiction). Reb asks Mitch to do his eulogy and 8 years later, Mitch is still visiting and getting to know the Reb. It sorta felt like every sentence I read whether from Reb (Rabbi) or Henry (Priest) was pure wisdom. And that's what I've learned to love about faith and ...more
