A creative way to pray - across faith traditions - made new for all who seek a more intimate experience with God. Lushly illustrated.
Divided into three parts, the first part of Bead by Bead takes a historical look at prayer beads across centuries and cultures. Part Two showcases opportunities for heart/mind/body ways to "pray the beads without the beads," including activities that are whimsical, ordinary, and spirited, to inspire readers to create their own. The book concludes with an invitation to contemplate one's own life as a rosary. Readers are encouraged to draw their own set of prayer beads and, with discernment and prayer, label each bead. They then can keep and literally hold their life in their hands in prayer, gratitude, and awe.

"Bead by Bead is not just a book about an old way to pray. This is a deft and frolicking journey. As Southern raconteur, jarring theologian, and reluctant prayer warrior, Henley invites us to walk out the door and see the whole world aglow with the shimmering beads of the Holy Spirit." Sybil MacBeth, author of Praying in Color and The Season of the Nativity
