Author Mitch Albom calls them two men of God.
One, a gentle Rabbi born during the first world war who led a suburban New Jersey Congregation. The other, an oversized, energetic African-American pastor of a ramshakle Detroit church.
When it comes to transgressions, Rabbi Albert Lewis' biggest seemed to be his mismatched clothes. The Rev. Henry Covington had a longer rap-sheet. He's a reformed drug dealer, and former inmate.
Albom intertwines the two men's lives in his newest book "Have a Little Faith." The columnist and author will be reading from the book Sunday Night at Temple Israel in Minneapolis and he joined Tom Crann to talk about his book.
