Overview

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.

    An Inspirational Little Book

    As a cradle Catholic my eye was drawn to this little book, and on the whole, I was not disappointed. The author talks about his reasons as to why he believes the Rosary is a wonderful prayer - and I found myself agreeing with him. It really is a very nice "prayer" book.
    There were 2 things I thought were errors, however: he writes about the "Romans" rolling away the stone of Jesus' tomb when in the Scriptures it mentions the stone already having been rolled away when the women arrived. And in the prayers he lists for the Rosary, he has the Nicene Creed. That isn't said with the Rosary as far as I can remember.
    Oh, and one thing he could have added....the traditional days of the week when the various Mysteries are meditated upon. It would have been nice to have that in there.
