Book Description

2 Sep 2010

Will you do my eulogy?

With those words, Mitch Albom begins his long-awaited return to non-fiction. His journey to honour the last request of a beloved clergyman ultimately leads him to rekindle his own long-ignored faith.

Albom spends years exploring churches and synagogues, the suburbs and the city, the "us" versus "them" of religion.

Slowly, he gravitates to an inner-city pastor of a crumbling church that houses the homeless, and 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Moving Book - Makes you think! 30 Oct 2009
By Strudel
Format:Hardcover
I was on my way to board a plane and my eye caught this new Mitch Albom book - I had to buy it and I am SO glad I did. This book has a way of somehow grabbing your soul, it makes you question your own thoughts, feelings, judgements and how much compassion we all "think" we have. The ageing Rabbi "Reb" truly does have compassion...oodles of it...we could all learn alot from this wise man. As for Henry, the Detroit "Reb" - well I guess, put in the same position as Mitch, knowing Henrys background, we too would judge him....BUT when he pours his heart out to Mitch about how NOTHING that he does or continues to do will be enough to make up for what he has done wrong in his past...truly humbled me. It made me cry, it made my friend cry too. The part where Mitch tells of seeing Henry in the rundown church darkness, sitting silently, watching over the down-and-out folk sleeping on the floor...made me feel a lump in my throat and I understood that mans need to make ammends. An awesome writing!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best non-fiction I've read for a long time 8 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover
If you're worried that the author of the book is trying to convert you into a religion of some sort, rest easy!! Albom really isn't trying to convert anyone into anything. What this book does, so wonderfully and powerfully, is to guide the faith-less readers back to finding the precious gift of faith and encourage the faithfulls to stregthen theirs. Reading Albom's journey is very humbling and awakening at the same time. I'm glad that he's been used by the higher authority to bless others through his many talents. This, no doubt, is a book to treasure and keep on your bookshelf. A book to be read and re-read. I thought about the many people I want to gift this book to before I even finish the last page. Thanks for sharing your journey with us Mitch!

I've never written a review before but felt compelled to having just finished this wonderful book. Whether you see yourself as a person of faith or not, read this book! You will be challenged, moved, inspired and left reflecting on your own faith journey (which is surely a good thing). Albom writes in such a beautiful way, I often felt like I was actually there, walking with him as he gets to know his rabbi and meets an inspirational pastor in inner-city Detroit (Henry). The challenge - to write the euology for his aging rabbi (Reb) - provokes questioning about his apathetic approach to his own faith, causing Albom to spend several years with these two men as they live out their lives in markedly different contexts. The beauty of this book is its accessibility - buy it as soon as you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 17 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover
Read it in one day. Couldn't put it down. Such a genuinely nice book and a true story which makes it all the better. Not necessarily for very religious people but anyone who is looking for faith even in ourselves and eachother.
Makes you think this book is onto something..when you feel like you have everything but you're still missing something maybe its faith in something more that we're missing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book of lovely reminders 3 July 2010
By Dee
Format:Hardcover
A book about two different men both heading for heaven,by different paths, not about being a member of a church , but goodness of spirit . Hope I have'nt made this book sound boring because it is not , some great phrases in there
" packing for heaven " and " in love with hope " A good gift idea for a troubled freind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Divine Spark Inside Us All. 19 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
A book to lead you towards believing in something bigger than yourself - where spreading faith and hope and making a difference in the lives of others is what it's all about. This is a warm-hearted, inspiring book where the talented author Mitch Albom examines how faith shines differently in people's expressions. Mitch writes about the spiritual journey of two holy men, one a rabbi close to death and the other an inner-city pastor. Each of these holy men express their faith in different ways but, none the less, their faith supports and sustains many of their congregation through trying and difficult times. And of the author's own journey, well that evolves into one of grace, compassion and meaning in his own life.

While reading Mr. Albom's work I was reminded of Ariel and Shya Kane's book "Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment". The Kanes' book is also rich in real life stories filled with compassion, inspiration and sharing of life's magical moments. Both of these wonderful books hold a place of honor on my bookshelf. I know they would be a gift to anyone who reads them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad read, moving at times 28 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback
These are true stories about three people; Reb, a retired and seriously ill rabbi; Henry, a pastor in a decaying church and ultimately the book is about the author.

Albom is a lapsed Jew, he followed the faith as a child, and then went off the rails a little bit, married outside the faith and rarely set foot in a synagogue again. Out of the blue, his rabbi from that time called him and asked if he would write his eulogy. Surprised as he was by this, he agreed and went back to meet him to make some notes.
Reb has a way of communicating with people that is very special and what develops between them is quite unique. Albom talks openly, and asks some tough questions of him. Their relationship is one of warmth and admiration, and Albom ends up with pages and pages of notes.
Henry is a bad guy turned good. He is a huge man and has been in the past a petty thief, a drug dealer, a drug user and al round thug. Even though he had contact with the church, he never took that extra step and committed. Unit one day something in his life made him stop and walk a different path. He is now a pastor at a Detroit church that is badly in need of maintenance, and his congregation is made up from homeless people.

These two men of different faiths share many common values. Albom tells their life stories in parallel, as well as snapshots from their pasts.

When he comes to write the eulogy for Reb, he takes one look at his reams of notes, sets them aside and writes from his heart.

This is the second book of his that I have read in a handful of days. He writes with effortless aplomb, without a wasted word. These are two men that he grew close to; who sought to do and not talk.
