A Jane Austen Devotional


It is no secret that I enjoy books by Isabel Anders. I had the good fortune to review Miss Marple: Christian Sleuth, a book which I really enjoyed because of my affinity for old British movies and television shows. You can imagine how delighted I was when I discovered Thomas Nelson publishes a devotional series of books that utilize literary figures. I discovered A Jane Austen Devotional as I perused books to review from Amazon.com. Written by Steffany Woolsey, the devotional is two hundred thirteen pages of prayers and wisdom from Jane Austen.

Rather than being broken down into chapters, each devotion is two pages. They begin with a pertinent passage from one of Jane Austen's famous books. The second page of each devotional presents a relevent Bible verse and summarizes the lesson to be learned from the characters. There are devotionals on such topics as kindness, spiritual bankruptcy, self deception, a disciplined prayer life, feeling sorry for oneself, danger of self importance, and an array of others. All together, there are 104 lessons in A Jane Austen Devotional. The book concludes with a short biography of Austen's life and a few prayers.

If you have a Jane Austen fan in your circle of friends or family, pick up a copy today. Though the devotionals are short...often only providing a sentence or two to meditate on...they will be meaningful to fans of Austen's literary works.

This book is available from online retailers such as www.amazon.com
