Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: I read this in conjunction with The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis while taking a "God, Suffering, & Evil" in college. This book reminds me that we must cherish those that are important to us. We must ask them all of the questions that we can while they are still in our lives. It's about learning life’s greatest lesson through the death of a friend. It's about feeling a great passion for life. We must be ready for our time when we meet God.
