Prayer is a many-splendored reality--a response to great happiness and great sadness in times of normalcy and times of great upheaval. What happens when we pray? What is this exercise of communion with our God? This book addresses these questions and more by illuminating specific biblical passages for each mystery of the rosary, and helping the reader gain insight into the meaning of those texts and God's plan. It explores the use of the rosary, the mysteries, and the depth of God's love for us. As we gain insight into the meaning of biblical texts and try to discover God's plan in a variety of events, we experience such a state of awe that we may be overwhelmed with not being able to clearly see God's plans. As our love for God grows, we feel we are incapable of expressing such great love in simple terms. Prayer and the mystery of the rosary provide us a channel to communicate this pure love. This book gives the reader a chance to explore the mysteries of the rosary and examine various dimensions and aspects of prayer. View sample pages. Paperback Available for the Amazon Kindle:

Back cover copy

Beads and the Bible follows the mysteries of the rosary, deepening our prayer experience for each mystery with a focus that presents a challenge for daily meditation. Dr. Craghan provides a textual explanation drawn from a Scripture reading related to each mystery. These valuable insights, followed by a reflection, offer a stimulating immersion into Scripture that emphasizes God's Word, mysteriously alive, in praying the rosary. "Our task is to allow the Word to enter our entire being, to permeate our whole person in such a way that it can console and challenge us, that it can surprise and re-energize us. The Word of God is not meant to be a dusty collection of obscure texts from the ancient Near East, but a dynamic series of encounters between God and humans." From the Introduction Enter the mysteries of the rosary and awaken to the Word of God acting within you to more fully experience the presence of God.
