Item description for The Rosary Handbook: A Guide for Newcomers, Old-Timers, and Those in Between by Mitch Finley...
Overview Why has the rosary remained such a popular Catholic devotional prayer? In this upbeat and easy-to-read book, Catholic author Mitch Finley explains that the simplicity and depth of the rosary make it a prayer for all seasons. The rosary is perfect for those times when words can't express our feelings, when we want to contemplate the basic truths of our faith, or when we simply want to enter into God's presence. Finley includes a brief and accurate history of the rosary, explains why it is a Christ-centered prayer, and provides background on the individual prayers of the rosary and a short commentary on each of the twenty mysteries. This book will help Catholics who have prayed the rosary all their lives but want to know more about it-as well as those who want to begin anew or try it for the first time.

Easy, Meaty Read Jun 15, 2008
I bought this book to learn more about this ancient practice and I was not disappointed. Finley gives background on the Rosary and expounds on the 20 mysteries. I found the explanation of the prayers - the Our Father, the Apostles' Creed and so forth, to be very helpful, even if one is not Catholic or does not pray the Rosary.
Great for Beginners Apr 29, 2008
This is a wonderful book for people who are just learning the Rosary. It gives the history of the Rosary, and goes step-by-step through each prayer and mystery. At the end, it gives you the actual instruction on how to pray the Rosary, and then a short segment from someone about how to personalize it and make it special to you. HIGHLY recommend this. Quick read, easy to understand, and very enlightening!
The Beauty of the Rosary Explained May 6, 2007
The Rosary Handbook is a must have for everyone - even if you already pray the Rosary. Since I had fallen out of the habit of praying the Rosary as so many of my fellow Catholics have, it reminded me of all the reasons to return to this practice. If you are an old hand (not to make a pun) at the rosary you will find much of interest in the chapter on the origins and history of the Rosary. If you are new to this practice you will benefit much from the instructional aspect. All will benefit from the wonderful meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary. As always, Mr. Finley manages to convey profound truths in simple reader-friendly language. I love all of his books but this one really shines.
