Now including a new chapter for the paperback edition. "A masterpiece."
--Publishers Weekly "In the beginning there was a question. 'Will you do my eulogy' As is often the case with faith, I thought I was being asked a favor. In truth, I was being given one..." "An absolute wonder--tender, transporting, and deeply moving."
--Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent "The nonfiction equivalent to Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist."
--Sydney Morning Herald "A faith journey that could become a classic."
--Jim Wallis, author of The Great Awakening "Albom helps show the true definition of 'Church.' It is not the building, it is the people and their faith."
--Bishop T.D. Jakes, Chief Pastor, The Potter's House "Everybody should read it."
--Hoda Kotb in People, Best Book of 2009
