I had the opportunity recently to receive an advanced copy of Mitch's Albom's forthcoming book, HAVE A LITTLE FAITH. I've been a fan of his books since TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, and have been anticipating this - his first non-fiction book - since its release.
In a nutshell, Mitch profiles two people: a rabbi who he has been asked to write a eulogy for, and an inner-city convict turned pastor. Two very different worlds, two very different religions, but one strongly shared similarity : FAITH.
This book REALLY made me think about my OWN spirituality and what faith means to me these days. It really opens your mind to the bigger picture of faith. The question Albom asks is: "what if faith wasn't what divided us, but what brought us together?" In a world where "holier-than-thou" prevails, and everyone's religion is the ONLY religion, I think it could benefit us all to sit back and think about what we're all really here for and what faith and belief really means.
This book is REALLY good - might be my new Albom favorite. If you've read the book already, I'd love to know what you think. And I'd love to know if it got you thinking about your own spiritual leanings as it did with me.
And if you HAVEN'T read it yet, I highly recommend you do so when it comes out at the end of the month. You won't be sorry.
