About this title:
Synopsis:
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.

About the Author:
Mitch Albom writes for the DETROIT FREE PRESS, and has been voted America's No. 1 sports columnist ten times by the Associated Press Sports Editors. A former professional musician, he hosts a daily radio show on WJR in Detroit.

From AudioFile:
Anticipating his own death, Albom's 82-year-old childhood rabbi asks him to write and deliver his eulogy. The request takes Albom back to his Jewish roots on a journey that contrasts differing faiths, ethnicities, races, and social classes. The book features a number of Albom's experiences--from his friendship with an African-American ex-convict, now an inner-city pastor, to his uncomfortable public discussions of faith with his rabbi. Albom is a rare author who reads his own work with skill. He delivers seamless narratives that capture subtle insights about his life's purpose, the need for forgiveness, his loss of faith, and his newfound belief in something larger than himself. Creating rich characterizations of his friends in both his writing and his narration, he explores his own preconceptions and misgivings, among other difficult issues, as he rediscovers the importance of faith.
