    In these classic essays, which began as talks on the BBC during World War II, Lewis creatively and simply explains the basic tenets of Christianity. Taken from the core section of Mere Christianity, this book provides an accessible way for people to discover these timeless truths. For those looking to remind themselves of what they hold true, or those looking for a snapshot of Christianity, this book is a wonderful introduction to the faith.

    "Rated on Content"
    Overall

    This was a tough listen for me on audio, but I will listen again. The content is true to C.S. Lewis and always an encouragement. He is able to present Jesus in a manner that cannot be argued.

    Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

    Story

    I just realized that this book had yet another reader, not the same as the first in this series (as I had original thought), but perfect for the job! I have not found another book by Jan Karon after this one, which dulls my heart some since I have yet to find another author whose fictional writing not only delights one's very senses, but instructs for life!

    I am reading the series for the third time - and not bored in the least! I receive something new each time.

    After more than 38 years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey. Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, the loving woman who was like his second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?

    I gave a 3 x 5 Star rating even though it was strange getting used to a new reader, BUT I believe for this series he was grand, and made the first two books in this series come alive. Read it!

    Mitford's Lord's Chapel seats barely two hundred souls, yet millions of Jan Karon's fans will be there for the most joyful event in years: the wedding of Father Tim Kavanagh and Cynthia Coppersmith.

    Story

    As with all of the books I have read from Jan Karon, this one is a delight to the soul. The most difficult thing for me was a new reader. It took me until about half way through to enjoy the book. I am not certian the reader was the best choice, but the content is choice!

    It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old.

    "the pause that refreshes"

    This is my second time to listen to the Mitford series. It has been several years since the first read, and it is just as refreshing second time around!
