Mitch Albom's first true-life story since Tuesdays with Morrie explores life through a unique journey: his search for the right words to eulogize a Man of God. Along the way, Albom - who walked away from a deeply religious background as a young man - rekindles his faith by sitting with and caring for the wise, funny, but slowly decaying man of the cloth. Together, they explore the things that pull us apart about faith, as well as the universal beliefs that pull us together.

I really enjoyed reading about the powerful faith of two men - a Jewish Rabbi and an African-American pastor.

This book is a combination of Mitch Albom's religious musings and a couple of interesting character studies, recounting his encounters with two individuals who clearly made a strong impression on him: the aging Rabbi who led Albom's congregation during his youth; and a black preacher who had previously for many years led a life of crime, addiction and degradation. Albom's high regard and affection for those two admirable individuals shines through, but this book is definitely not Albom's best. It has none of the magic that made "The Five People You Meet in heaven" and "For One More Day" so engaging. He appears to have tried to recapture the love that illuminated "Tuesdays with Morrie" but for me, the religious discussion got in the way.

Mitch Albom leads you through the faith journey of his rabbi and an inner-city preacher, intertwining their progress, and his. Another beautifully written book.

Very compelling story. It is great how he pulled th lives of two completely different people and found the parrallels and was able to wind it all together.

This is a wonderful story! For the topic it is still very uplifting and positive. But make sure you have some tissues ready as you get to the end.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This moving true story of a man's turmoil and self destruction is redeemed by the central character wanting no sympathy for his lot in life. He owns his many poor decisions and it is his recognition of the love his now departed mother held for him that ultimately helps him to love himself."

Very moving. It reminded me that it is okay to have questions about our faith!
