Publisher's Description

THE ROSARY is a beautifully illustrated practical and reverential primer to a centuries old prayer that has touched millions of lives. In the introduction, author Gary Jansen appeals to the universality of one of the original Christian prayers, "Though traditionally considered a Catholic act of devotion, the rosary with its primary focus on the life, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus, is ultimately a . . . universal prayer--one that can appeal to Christians of all denominations."

Written for both Catholic and Protestant Christians, candid explanations on why and how to pray the rosary along with useful instructions on how to get the most out of the meditative and spiritual exercise of repeating prayers are in the first of two sections. Prayers including a visual and spiritual journey that illuminates the teachings of the New Testament follow in the second section.

    Gary Jansens The Rosary: A Journey to the Beloved is a fascinating look at this meditative practice of prayer. It is very informative, explaining several things that I either didnt know or didnt understand as I grew up Catholic. However, now that I attend a Baptist church (and have been an attendee of an Assemblies of God church for years), I no longer pray in this way. Still, this was an enjoyable and educational read that I would recommend to anyone who wishes to understand the rosary better. The artwork is lovely and the writing is nearly poetry. Alternatives for meditations on Mary are included, as well.
