Item description for Sacramental Theology: Means of Grace, Ways of Life (Catholic Basics) by Kurt Stasiak & Thomas P. Walters...
Overview The rosary is a central element in the prayer lives of countless people, though it is still often neglected and misunderstood. The Rosary, an updated and revised version of The Seeker's Guide to the Rosary (Loyola Press, 2001), is a comprehensive look at the history, practice, and benefits of rosary devotion. Designed to introduce the reader to the mysteries of this simple meditative prayer, author Liz Kelly gently guides the reader on an exploration of this powerful prayer that is well suited even to this modern world. The book includes surprising and moving personal testimonies of the author, other devotees, and saints and holy figures, showing how rosary devotion is a practical and gratifying means of meditation that every person can use. A significant part of the book is devoted to the mysteries of the rosary, including the new luminous mysteries, five events from the public life of Jesus' ministry that Pope John Paul II added to the devotion in 2002 to give it "fresh life." Exploring the practical as well as the spiritual side of the rosary, Kelly reveals how it can be a powerful tool to enhance one's prayer life and relationship with God.

Clear and inspiring! Jun 23, 2009
Fr. Kurt is one of my all-time favorite sacramental theologians. I had him for two courses on the sacraments, and his clear and inspiring discussion of the sacraments has served me well in my spiritual life, my further theological studies, and in my professional life as high school religion teacher and college theology professor. I highly recommend this book.

A very good book. But, difficult to read because all the pages fell out of the book bind...poor glue used. If you can get over this, the book is quite informative.
