Different than TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, but just as moving
Have a Little Faith: A True Story
John Hogan "John Hog @ 2010-11-24
Mitch Alborn has written a number of interesting books that could actually be considered short stories. His best known may be TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, which is a biographical recount of his relationship with a favorite University professor who is enjoying every minute of his life despite an illness that will soon claim it.
HAVE A LITTLE FAITH has some of these same personal insights, as the now 80 year old religious leader of Alborn's childhood asks if Alborn will conduct his eulogy at the appropriate time. Alborn is puzzled, as they have had little interaction in more than 25 years since Alborn moved from NY to Detroit, but the story evolves into one the reader will appreciate and ponder. There are some very different aspects in this story when compared to MORRIE, but the ability of the author to move the reader to contrast some of their own personal insights make this well worth the time to read.
There are some puzzling segments in the book, but I strongly recommend this to anyone over the age of forty. Life moves at different speeds for each of us and the interaction of the three major characters in this story makes one consider personal values, commitments and life assessments.
As always, comments are always appreciated and valued.
