Finally a book of quotes without the gristle and fat

The title caught my eye as I was browsing in an airport store between flights. I opened the book and found an interesting quote, then another and another. Books of quotations are often like the frozen chicken nuggets, packaged with good chicken mixed with a lot of fat and gristle. This book is different. The quotes were all thought provoking and inspirational. I've read some other coffee table quote books and found them mostly full of gobblety-goop with some good verse through in for measure. The only thought provoking part of these books was wondering how quickly the author had gotten all of these useless quotations together to make his fast buck. Many of the quotes in Patches of Godlight I had not seen elsewhere. While I didn't buy the book for business purposes I immediately used one of the quotes to begin my seminar that afternoon.

Jan Karon is a blessing ...

I stumbled on the Mitford series a few years ago and have since recommended, loaned and purchased these books for many family members, friends and friends of friends. What an oasis of serenity, wisdom and spirituality Ms. Karon's books offer in an ocean of uncertainty. She doesn't avoid life's challenges (friendship, love, death, illness, alcoholism, homelessness, for example), but addresses them in a way that gives readers hope for their own lives. "Patches of Godlight" is a book that you can pick up again and again, open to any page, and come away filled with hope and optimism. This is a perfect addendum to "The Mitford Series" and a perfect Christmas gift (along with "The Mitford Snowmen") for "Jan's fans."

Perfect for Sermons or Speeches

I am a seminary student and ordered this book after a friend in my Greek language class recommended it to me. This is the kind of book I would give to the pastors in my family. The quotations in here can spice up any speech or sermon and are perfect for devotional reading.

I'm glad she wrote this!

I'm a huge Jan Karon fan. This is going to be a great book to give as a Christmas gift to family and friends, sort of a condensing of a lot of the wisdom I've read in all her books. I'm also a prodigious fan of Homer Hickam, perfect for Jan fans who hunger for stories of small towns, great characters, and chuckles and tears. Just finished Homer's Sky of Stone. Wow, is all I can say. Two great series - Mitford and Coalwood forever!

This book is a must have!

My copy arrived on September 12 - the day after the "Attack on America." What a blessing. For those of you who have read all of Jan Karon's Mitford series and admired her work, owning this book is a must! Throughout the series, Father Timothy Kavanagh has shared his wisdom and his heart through quotes for the famous and not-so-famous. This book is a collection of thoughts forloving and living. Thank you, Father Tim.To those of you who haven't discovered the Mitford series, get going! At this time of national tragedy, the folks in Mitford will restore your faith in humankind.
