Have a Little Faith

by Ankit choudhary
(Jaipur, Rajasthan, India)

I have to admit I picked up Have a Little Faith with a good deal of skepticism. The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day were a little too saccharine for me, and I was afraid Have a Little Faith would be more of the same. I also was not particularly interested in Mitch Albom's philosophy of religion. Fortunately, Have a Little Faith is a return to what Albom, the journalist, does best -- he tells two men's stories with just the right amount of detail to engage readers, but with a simplicity and flow that makes the book easy to read.


Yes, Have a Little Faith will make you think about faith and religion, but fortunately, Albom mostly lets these questions flow naturally from the narrative rather than forcing them down the reader's throats. The book also avoids trying to tie things up neatly, allowing the similarities of the faiths to shine without coming to lofty conclusions for what this means for religion in general.

Much of the book recounts trip Albom took to interview his childhood rabbi after the rabbi asks if he'll do his eulogy after he dies. These visits happened over a period of eight years, and this part of the book is a little bit like Tuesdays with Morrie Part II. The other person we meet is a criminal turned inner city pastor who works with a struggling homeless ministry in inner city Detroit. These mean are very different, but Albom sees a common thread in the way they view their lives through the lens of faith.

Have a Little Faith is a quick read -- I finished almost the whole book in one evening. It is a worthwhile pick for anyone who wants a true, thought-provoking story.
