In his first nonfiction book since Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch Albom's new book begins with an unusual request: An 82-year-old rabbi from Albom's hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy. Delving into a journey to understand a man, Albom is confronted with a world of faith he'd left years ago, unlikely friendships and some big questions—how to endure when difficult things happen; what is heaven; intermarriage; forgiveness; doubting God; and the importance of faith in trying times. What he finds is a uniting bond among beliefs everywhere.
