Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim's Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series Reviews

  • Margaret

    I love this little gem of a book that I won from Goodreads Firstreads. I have read all of Jan Karon's Mitford and Father Tim books, but it has been a while. I had forgotten just how wonderful a writer she is. I was happy to spend time with all my favorite characters again and I think that I will have to reread the books all over again! I usually give away my books when I have finished them, but I am keeping this one for myself! It's a nice size to tuck in a purse or keep nearby to reread passage

It would also make a great stocking stuffer .

    I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I love the Mitford series by Jan Karon. Visiting Mitford is like visiting family - at times dysfunctional, but deep down, always filled with love. Having a book that has all of Father TIm's prayers, sermons, and reflections in one place is a dream come true. It was like a visit back through all the best parts of the series and definitely makes me want to re-read the series once again, looking deeper

    I recommend this book who have loved Father Tim and the Mitford series. A lovely rememberance of a dedicated and devout Episcopal priest.

    I so enjoyed reading Jan Karon’s newest book, Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. However, reading it was poignant.

    The book highlights Father Tim Kavanagh’s and Jan Karon’s favorite verses and excerpts. The compilation will bring you to laughter, tears and to your knees, as you reminisce, reflect and ponder over the selections.

    I so enjoyed reading Jan Karon’s newest book, Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. However, reading it was poignant.

    The book highlights Father Tim Kavanagh’s and Jan Karon’s favorite verses and excerpts. The compilation will bring you to laughter, tears and to your knees, as you reminisce, reflect and ponder over the selections.

    Karon’s Forward gives us a brief glimpse into her life. In addition, there are insights into how Father Kavanagh and the wonderful town of Mitford came into being.

    I also enjoyed the rich weaving of Bible verses, prayers and famous quotes woven throughout the book. I particularly liked one quote. I was reminded to pray for those who seem to be cantankerous and nasty, as Matthew 5:44 (KJV) commands, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…” The quotation in the book was by William Law. It reads, “There is nothing that makes us love someone so much as praying for them.”

    A more fitting commemorative and celebratory memorial could not have been written, and thankfully, Karon is the one who wrote it.

    There are two sections titled acknowledgments. Be sure to read both, as one has interesting tidbits about how a character came into being.

    Thank you so very much to G.P. Putnam’s Sons/ Penguin Random House for the opportunity to read and review this beautiful, albeit bittersweet, mosaic of stories. I was not required to write a review. However, I was happy to write one.

    If I could, I would give it more than 5 Stars!!

    “Thanks for the free/gifted book, @Putnambooks”

    A treasure for Mitford fans. Excerpts from all fourteen novels cover all of the beloved characters from Father Tim & Cynthia to Dooley & Lace. Karon writes a brief autobiography to open this collection, as this is probably the last of her series of books.

  • Bonnie

    For fans of Jan Karon's Mitford series, you'll enjoy this small book with revisits to each of the books in this series and some reflections by the author and about her path to becoming a writer. Enjoyable and quick read.

    I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway and while it wasn't exactly what I was looking for it was and later on will be very enjoyable when I need a quick visit to Mitford. The author highlights each of the Mitford books by starting with the first At Home In Mitford and summarizes the books and then she goes through some of the more touching chapters in each book.

    BATHED IN PRAYER is a collector's copy for fans of Mitford as this is closing that fiction line. It is also an introduction to the series in case a reader gets their hands on it and is intrigued by some of the selections.

    My husband and I were introduced to Mitford when they first came out by a leader in a Mom's Time Out or Mothers of Preschoolers group I attended. The leader raved about the book and being an avid bookworm I had to check it out. Back then they had Christian bookstores around every corner just about and online wasn't a thing. Now you don't even have to get dressed to find your favorite bookseller online, type in BATHED IN PRAYER and buy a copy for the serious Mitford fan on your Christmas gift. They will be all squeally happy as my teen daughter would say.

    Truly a book that needs to be added to the Mitford shelf in a fan's library. Or the public library.

    I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

    This book will be a welcome addition to the shelves of die-hard Mitford fans, of which I am one, but be warned: 95% of this book is material, quoted verbatim, from previous Mitford books. Outside of Karon's foreword and a brief sentence of two introduction of each chapter, it's all material from the other books. Now, I love Mitford, but this bothered me a teeny bit. Essentially, you are paying for a hardcover book that you've already read. Karon is leaving Mitford, a fact for which I am deeply s

Essentially, you are paying for a hardcover book that you've already read. Karon is leaving Mitford, a fact for which I am deeply saddened, so I suppose this is her going out, so to speak. I still wished I'd known this before I purchased the book. It still garners 4 stars cause it's ….well, MITFORD!
