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.
