    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.

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!

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.

    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.

    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”

    Loved this peek back at some of the spiritual gems from each of the books in the Mitford series.

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.

    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. If you haven't read all of the Mitford series there will be spoilers in the summaries and chapters that follow.

    It was nice to return to Mitford and characters I've grown to love in this series. Bathed in Prayer referenced different books in the series and tied it to prayers, sermons and reflections in each one. It highlighted important story lines and reminded me that I haven't quite finished the series so I do have a few more books to read. I liked that there was the ribbon bookmark like you would find in some prayer books and the Bible. Enjoyable and quick read that definitely had me reminiscing!

    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 I love this little gem of a book that I won from Goodreads Firstreads.

It would also make a great stocking stuffer .

    Over the top five stars for this beautiful and touching review of the some of our favorite moments in the Mitford series. With an Episcopal priest as the main character we are treated to many of his prayers and moments of reflection, many of them quotes from "The Common Book of Prayer." Could even be used in ones' quiet time as it is that rich with theological gems. Read this jewel of a book and be blessed all over through the gift of Mitford.

    This new book by Jan Karon is not new material, but a wonderful compilation of prayer events in the entire Mitford series. It was wonderful to re-read some of my favorite moments in Father Tim's life.

    There was nothing new here, but a compilation of chapters/excerpts from her previous books. I enjoyed reading some that I had forgotten, but I was still kind of disappointed. I know the title says it all, but I still expected something more.

    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.

    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.

    This is just reprints of sections of Karon's earlier books. She wrote one very good book. Each succeeding book was less interesting and of poorer quality than the preceding book.

    What a lovely book to read in December and go down memory lane with Father Tim. This is a perfect gift for anyone who has read the series. And, it comes with a ribbon bookmark. Love it!
