A beautiful collection of some of Father Tim's favorite quotes and a great companion to the Mitford series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon. Written in Father Tim Kavanagh's own hand, this wonderful collection of quotes brings to life the personal reflections of Mitford's beloved Episcopal priest. Here Father Tim has carefully recorded his favorite quotes from a variety of thinkers, philosophers, and poets whom he has admired over the years. Next to the quotes are Father Tim's personal comments, scribblings, and doodlings. From C. S. Lewis and Mark Twain to Aristophanes and St. Paul, these heartwarming words on love, life, and faith are a perfect addition to the Mitford series--and a must-have for Jan Karon's millions of readers.

A collection of sayings, poetry and other writing; supposedly collected by Father Tim of Mitford, but really Father Tim's author Jan Karon. Lovely bits from the Bible, Mother Teresa, Shakespeare, Thoreau and other much lessor known writers and poets. ( )

A very useful and inspiring book whose conception comes from the fertile mind of Jan Karon, author of the widely acclaimed and popular Mitford series. Here she takes favorite sayings, comments and quotations from eminent men and women throughout history and ascribes them to journal jottings of Father Tim, her leading character from the Mitford series. Some appear to be from his ancient typewriter and others are hand-written with occasional personal comments. A friend who sent it to me entered in her own comments from shared life and reading experiences making the book a treasure. ( )
