Reviews - What do customers think about The New Rosary in Scripture: Biblical Insights for Praying the 20 Mysteries?
A great resource on the rosary Dec 29, 2008
This book is an excellent resource on the rosary. It has an apologetic section which answers basic questions on devotion to Mary and the importance of praying the rosary. It also has a meditation on each of the twenty mysteries of the rosary, a scriptural rosary for each set of mysteries and John Paul II's Rosarium Virginis Mariae, in it's entirety. It is an invaluable resource as a source of reflection, and as a jumping off point for the really important part, praying the rosary on your own and coming to your own reflections on each mystery.
Helpful Book on Learning to Pray the Scriptural Rosary Apr 28, 2008
I am leading a Bible study group on the Rosary and Scripture. The "Little Rock" scripture study I was given to use had little substance. I needed something that would fulfill my class's desire to learn some scripture and to relate it to the Rosary. This book will help us tremendously. Dr. Sri's knowledge of Scripture and love of the rosary is evident. He sets out scripture passages, from both the old and new testaments, to explain each mystery of the rosary. There is abundant material for our class to read, research, discuss and meditate on. The book also includes sections on various ways to pray the scriptural rosary, the history of the rosary and the writings of several popes on the rosary. The book is devout, scripturally sound, informative and easy to read. I am grateful to have found it on this site.
History behind rosary excellent; meditations very good Feb 24, 2008
This book gives the reader insights into the history of the Rosary and its prayer uses. The Rosary is one of the best ways to offer honor and glory to Jesus. This book makes clear that Catholics do NOT pray to Mary. She, being the first Christian, is a great model and intercessor. The author presents thorough responses to some of the compaints about the Rosary. This author quotes John Paul II the Great. The Rosary is not a rote response but one of prayerful meditation upon the life of our Lord. Good buy!
Wonderful Book On the Rosary Jan 12, 2007
Edward Sri has given us a marvellous compendium of the Mysteries of the Rosary. Each mystery is discussed at lenth and with wonderful theological depth. His scriptural rosary then incorporates everything learned in his more detailed chapters, making for a great devotional book. I highly recommend this book to everyone who has difficulty concentrating on the mysteries while praying the Holy Rosary.
The New Rosary in Scripture - Biblical Insights Jan 9, 2007
A must have for those looking to deepen their appreciation of the Rosary prayer. Edward Sri's commentary supported by Biblical texts encourages deeper understanding of the mysteries and opens new avenues for mediation. Thoroughly recommended.
