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.

For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger? Mitch Albom had that second chance.  He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class": lessons in how to live. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.
