A tender, transporting and deeply moving story of a young man asked to give the eulogy of his childhood rabbi, intersected with sermons and fables and meetings with his pastor. We see that both the faiths written about hold such important and different functions to different people and these beliefs are followed by many Jews and Christians alike. The book is about a remarkable eight year journey into what it means to live with hope in your heart. It begins with Mitch Albom being asked by his ailing 82 year old former mentor to deliver his eulogy upon his death. Feeling unworthy, Mitch insists on getting to understand the man better. At the same time he is getting to know a man with a deeply tragic past who preaches to the poor and homeless in a decaying church, but who remains full of hope and happiness. Albom spends years exploring churches and synagogues, the suburbs of the city of Detroit and the 'us' versus 'them' of religion. Even in the crumbling church that houses the homeless he is stunned at how similar belief can be. As his own beloved cleric slowly lets go, Albom writes his final farewell, having learned that a faithful heart comes in many forms and places. By the bestselling author of 'Tuesdays with Morrie' and 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven'. 262pp, paperback.
