Product Description

Garry Wills closely examines the history of the rosary, highlighting the conflicts associated with the physical object itself and with the actual practice of saying the rosary. The four prayers connected with the rosary--the Apostle's Creed, the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be--are briefly examined and explained. Most of the is devoted to placing the Joyful Mysteries, the Luminous Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries, and the Glorious Mysteries firmly into historical, theological, and spiritual context. Wills will take you on an exploration that will help you better understand the intricacies of Catholicism and find new ways to express your faith.

Publisher's Description

Look out for a new book from Garry Wills, What The Qur'an Meant, coming fall 2017.

In an age when self -help methods abound and meditation is a common prescriptive, Garry Wills-one of the most respected writers on religious topics today-offers an extraordinary journey through one of the oldest aids to spiritual contemplation.

Drawing together history and readings from scripture, Wills explains the beads on the rosary and the moments in Christ's life they represent, illustrating each mystery with a stunning Tintoretto painting. The result is an illuminating and poignant exploration of the power of prayer that will edify and inspire readers.
