Item description for The Grace of the Rosary: Scripture, Contemplation, And the Claim of the Kingdom of God by David P. Reid...
Overview David Reid takes devotion to the rosary to a whole new level in this thoughtful as well as thought-provoking book. He looks at each mystery of the rosary through the lens of its underlying biblical texts and by this connects biblical images with our own lives. The author views all twenty mysteries as a progression from the claim of the Kingdom of God (the luminous mysteries), through counter claim of temptation and rejection (the sorrowful mysteries), to the acclaim of the risen Lord (the glorious mysteries) sustaining the missionary proclamation of the gospel (the joyful mysteries). Reid invites readers to bring the findings of modern biblical study to bear on their own lives. He affirms that "...a thirst for social justice can emerge from a healthy contemplation provoked by a no-holds barred praying of the rosary." Devotees of the rosary, as well as those who have never prayed it, will find themselves open to a well grounded, highly fulfilling spirituality.
