Have a Little Faith: The Film Based on the Book by Mitch Albom

posted by Jennifer E. Jones

I encountered Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven) last year when I was on a kick with audio books from the library. I listened to it all in one sitting one afternoon. It’s a really good book.

As with all Albom books, it’s very inspirational. The insights from the rabbi and the preacher, who are central to the story, cover embracing faith and hope as well as leaving a legacy.

One line that still stays with me is: “When you come to the end, that’s where God begins.”

Every time I come across this sentence, I’m reminded of this: your own strength has its limitations and life will show you that from time to time. It is in those “end-of-your-rope” moments where you will find what you need… which, for all of us, is a little faith.

Have a Little Faith just became a movie starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, What’s Love Got to Do with It), Academy Award winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, The Majestic) and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing). Check out the trailer below.

Have a Little Faith airs Sunday, November 27, on the ABC Television Network. Check your local listings.

I watched the movie last night and it was really good. It made me do some thinking on a few things. You got the good the bad and the undecided in life. It also made me do some rethinking on people who have made bad mistakes in thier lives can change if they truely want to. And if you give of yourself, even your last dollor to someone who is in real need, God will give back to you even more. This is something I’m just truely learning. The movie is playing an encore on the Hallmark channel so if you didn’t see it on ABC try to get the encore version. It’s worth the watch.

This book promotes faith. I believe that is a positive but regardless, I do not feel the first review is appropriate as it appears to be a matter of not liking the subject,”having faith.” There is no review of the book itself but only a personal opinion on faith. I hope the author will redo their review based on the writing of the book and leave out their own personal issues as that is not what this forum is about.
