Have a little faith begins with an unsual request by an 82 year old rabbi from Albom’s old hometown, he asks him to deliver his eulogy.
Feeling unworthy, Albom insists on understanding the man better, which throws him back into the world of faith he’d left years ago. Meanwhile, closer to his current home, Albom becomes involved with a Detroit pastor – a reformed drug dealer and convict – who preaches to the poor and homeless in a decaying church.
I don’t really read non-fiction books, I’m more into fantasy and young adult genre. This book was a christmas gift from my mentor and oh my god! How I love this book! It is so well written that it left a big mark on my soul.
It was my first book by the author and I love it so much I’ll surely try his other ones.
The book is just 250 pages long so it took me a day to finish it, yet I ecperienced all kinds of emotions. From joy to being so sad that my eyes were filled with tears. I’m so glad I started my year with this book. The characters are so relatable sometimes and some lines will definitely touch your heart.
This book doesn’t ask you to follow a certain religious path but instead it will tell you to have faith in god, irrespective of any religious background.
This book is the one that made me realise it doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, god is always with you. You just need to have a little faith. In today’s world, young adults are forgetting their roots and where they come from, and I personally feel that this book needs to be read widely.
So go ahead, read this one. I’m sure you won’t regret. 🙂
