Overview

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.

Praise

A glorious book on that most uniquely Catholic of Christian devotions. (Andrew M. Greeley, author of The Catholic Revolution)

Wills has given us… a deeply personal essay about far more than just the rosary. (Phyllis Tickle, compiler of The Divine Hours)

Garry Wills retrieves one of the treasures of Catholic faith…. More, this book is itself a stirring prayer. (James Carroll, author of Constantine’s Sword)
