My Thoughts: This is a true account of two men of god who belong to different faiths, yet have more in common than meets the eye. Albom was asked to write and deliver a eulogy for his Rabbi, who he really did not know well. So before the Rabbi's passing, Albom makes a deal to visit the Rabbi every so often to meet and talk. As the 8 years go on, he continues meeting with the Rabbi and also becomes acquainted with a Christian preacher whose church is going to pieces structurally, but its congregation has faith things with work out with time.

Mitch Albom'a writing is so carefree and open. He's not afraid to write things that are truthful about us as people of faith and all humans. While this was not my favorite of Albom's book (For One More Day is) it still has a beauty of a message.
