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

  • Elizabeth Meadows

    An absolutely beautiful trip down memory lane with my favorite series of all time. This book features excerpts from each book in the series, which focus on the spiritual aspects from each book with a bit of narration by the author.

    I was given this as an ARC and will definitely buy a hardcover copy for my collection.

    Loved this peek back at some of the spiritual gems from each of the books in the Mitford series. It was not only inspiring and encouraging but also fun to recall parts of the stories of the beloved characters of Mitford. Absolutely recommend to Mitford fans and even those not familiar with the books will be blessed by reading this special compilation of outtakes.

    *Note - One disappointment that was the publisher's fault and not the author's - the Acknowledgements page appeared in the middle of the last chapter. It really puzzled me until I realized what had happened. Messed up the flow of the ending of the book as I had to stop and figure out why it seemed to end in such an odd place. And then a slightly different Acknowledgements page appeared at the true end of the book. Very strange and I feel in poor taste of the publisher to go ahead and sell books that had such a major mistake in them. (I won this book in a giveaway, but the book was mailed directly from the publisher and was not in any way marked as an ARC so I don't think that's the explanation. Not sure.)

    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 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”

    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!

    Lovely book which travels through the Mitford Series with Father Tim and relates many of his heartfelt prayers and petitions to the one true God, the triune God, the God of love. It shares many, many of his prayers--intercessory prayers for those of his flock, for those he is trying to love as himself, for family and friends, for strangers who become brothers and sisters in Christ. He prays for his own submission and surrender to God's will by praying the "prayer that never fails"--Father, your

    Lovely book which travels through the Mitford Series with Father Tim and relates many of his heartfelt prayers and petitions to the one true God, the triune God, the God of love. It shares many, many of his prayers--intercessory prayers for those of his flock, for those he is trying to love as himself, for family and friends, for strangers who become brothers and sisters in Christ. He prays for his own submission and surrender to God's will by praying the "prayer that never fails"--Father, your will be done. He prays in fear, in hope, in despair, in love, in faith. This beautiful little book reminds us to "pray without ceasing." This book has lifted my spirits while coping with some difficulties. Worth reading.

    When I first started reading the Mitford books, I was an Episcopalian. I found them old-fashioned and sweetly charming. I asked my priest if he’d read any of them. You mean the books by that woman who’s obviously in love with her priest, he asked?

    Well. In spite of the unremitting goodness of the people in these books, I still find them charming. This volume contains prayers and sermons and liturgical talismans from the Book of Common Prayer. Still sweet. Still charming. A quick, spiritually lov

    Well. In spite of the unremitting goodness of the people in these books, I still find them charming. This volume contains prayers and sermons and liturgical talismans from the Book of Common Prayer. Still sweet. Still charming. A quick, spiritually lovely review of some of the crisis moments and high points of some 14 volumes. Nice.
