ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Praying with Jane
Author: Rachel Dodge
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Release Date: October 2, 2018
Daily Encouragement for Your Soul through the Prayers of Jane Austen
For more than two hundred years, Jane Austen and her novels have charmed readers from around the world. While much has been written about her fascinating life, less is known about Jane’s spiritual side. In this beautiful 31-day devotional, Miss Austen’s faith comes to life through her exquisite prayers, touching biographical anecdotes, and illuminating scenes from her novels. Each reading also includes a thematically appropriate Scripture and a prayer inspired by Jane’s petitions.
May this journey into Jane Austen’s life of faith and prayer ignite and deepen your own relationship with the Father who loves you.
Excerpt from Praying With Jane:
“Give us a thankful sense of the Blessings in which we live, of the many comforts of our Lot; that we may not deserve to lose them by Discontent or Indifference.”—excerpt from Austen’s prayers
“Jane’s prayer reminds us to make thanksgiving an integral part of our prayer lives as a powerful antidote against discontentment and indifference. When you fill your mouth for what he has done and has promised to do shifts your focus from what you don’t have to what you do.”

As an Austen fan (both book AND film), I knew I’d enjoy this book. Yet even more, I was moved by its spiritual significance and ability to move me and help me see God and myself. This book would be a wonderful gift for you, or for someone you love who’s an Austenphile!
