Mitch Albom (Bradley Whitford) has a pretty great life. He lives in Detroit and is happily married, he’s an award-winning sportswriter, a must-read newspaper columnist, a screenwriter, a radio and television broadcaster. Then two men come into his life, and he realizes something’s missing. Rabbi Albert Lewis (Martin Landau) presides over a thriving synagogue in a comfortable New Jersey suburb, and pastor Henry Covington (Laurence Fishburne), a recovering drug user and dealer, preaches to the poor and homeless in a crumbling Detroit inner-city church. Moving between their worlds—Christian and Jewish, African-American and white, impoverished and privileged—Albom witnesses first-hand how these two very different men not only live life, but celebrate it. What else do these two have in common? They believe there’s a divine spark in all of us—and that a single person can make a big difference in others’ lives, as long as they have a little faith.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellen Have a Little Faith
I saw this on Hallmark Movie Channel. From the start, even before he was mentioned, I knew it was going to be about Rabbi Lewis. I am now 67, but as a 12 year old Christian I attended the Bar Mitzvah of a school friend over a 3 day period. I was enthralled with Rabbi Lewis and what he gave to all of us, mostly non Jewish children, in an educational and spiritual way. I have never forgotten him to this day and now I have Mitch Albom's book and this Hallmark movie to pass on so others can know the wisdom and common sense of this wonderful man, and why I will never forget him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baby Kay I'm glad I bought it
A wonderful life story of personal struggles and hardships between and within ethnic groups and how Faith brought them all together. I love it and I bought one for my best friend.
