More Than Just a Little Faith,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Have a Little Faith: A True Story (Hardcover)
Mitch Albom has been one of my favorite sportswriters for years; his style is eloquent, yet concise and very witty. His words are well-chosen when he writes and this particular effort is no exception. It's terrific.
This is a remarkable, true story of contrast, of two men of God; one an aging rabbi, and the other, an African American pastor working in a ghetto. Two men---two different faiths; two entirely different backgrounds. In the end, the message is clear: Faith ties us closely together and can give us the chance to accomplish things we never dreamed possible.
Albom's anecdotal tale of his own personal experience with faith---losing it and regaining it---carries an inspirational message for anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, or lack thereof. We come away with a better understanding of how life can be so meaningful, if we'll only give it a chance.
Read this book; you'll be moved, as I was.

This is a positive review as compared to the negative review. I will probably purchase this one. I heard about the author and another book on TV.

I received this book as a gift from a friend and delayed reading it because I had other things I wanted to read first. What a mistake that was. This book is remarkable; it shows the interaction of two "men of God" with Mitch Albom that is so uplifting. It made me laugh and cry and renewed my faith that there are people in this world who truly give inspiration by the example of their lives. Give yourself a gift; read it.
