The Rosary

A Journey to the Beloved
By Gary Jansen (Hardcover Book, 2008)
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.

  • "A wonderful book. Not just wonderful, but very important." (bestselling author of The Alchemist).

  • "I'd say the Rosary is for everyone, except--as Gary Jansen notes in this wonderful introduction to the prayer--it can't be, since so many people hurry and worry through life. Slow down. Relax. Pray." (author of The Compleat Gentleman: The Modern Man's Guide to Chivalry).

  • "In a book that is reverent, inspiring, and practical, Gary Jansen reveals the extraordinary spiritual depths of the Rosary." (author of Saints for Every Occasion).
