Book Cover of Have A Little Faith by Albom, Mitch

This book begins with a strange request - an 82-year-old man asks Mitch to deliver the eulogy at his funeral. But not just any man - A clergyman, a man of the cloth, Mitch's lifelong rabbi. The man who sends people off to heaven, now wants the author to do it for him. Then begins a journey that spans eight years, in which Mitch, feeling unqualified for the eulogy request, insists on getting to know the man behind the robes and the pulpit, even as he slowly decays in his old age. Mitch explores the human side of the people who 'believe', and examines why people believe in those people. He and 'The Reb' (as the teenagers nicknamed him) discuss topics that perplex modern man - how to be righteous in a world that isn't; how a cleric keeps from growing cynical; intermarriage; atheism; the 'us' and 'them' of religion; war; heaven; what happens when a man of God begins to doubt God.


Book Cover of Time Keeper, The by Albom, Mitch

From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on earth to count the hours. The man who became Father Time. In Mitch Albom's newest work of fiction, the inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. He returns to our world--now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began--and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so. Told in Albom's signature spare, evocative prose, this remarkably original tale will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time, how they spend it and how precious it truly is.
