All the great faiths employ the rosary, or its string, to increase mindfulness and spirituality.

Using beads in prayer is common to all the great religions: from the oldest, Hinduism, to modern–day Christianity; from Judaism and Islam to Buddhism. Beads of Faith is a richly illustrated introduction to the principal prayer–bead traditions that have shaped religious practice across cultures. The main focus is on key prayers and holy practices, framed by inspirational quotes from yogis, rabbis, gurus, and saints. The beauty of each faith’s rosary is revealed in 120 color images of medieval manuscripts, icons, Renaissance paintings, Persian miniatures, sculpture, and temple carvings. Gray Henry is a former pupil of Joseph Campbell, the renowned mythologist; Henry, currently director of two academic publishing houses, is also co–founder of the Islamic Texts Society.
