5.0 von 5 Sternen Enter the world of prayer, one bead at a time. 26. März 2008
Von Sarah - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read a lot of books on different forms of religion, as well as meditation and prayer. And I have had an interest in malas and other types of prayer beads. So when I saw that my boss had ordered this book for our library, I was psyched. I couldn't wait to dip into it.

And wow, am I glad I did. Not only is the format friendly and well-planned, with plenty of beautiful color photos and quotes, but it is also quietly non-judgmental and refreshingly open to a variety of influences. I really enjoyed that the author didn't just spend a lot of time telling about how she liked to bead without covering other important "stuff." It's nice to have a researched history, for example, that covers different faith traditions. And a section on prayers that are particularly tailored to the Anglican rosary, which is her main focus throughout, although she touches on others as well. I was especially glad to see a nice list of websites that carried other pertinent information and lovely, lovely beads to shop. In short, I was glad she covered all the bases.

I don't own this book yet, but I have a feeling it won't be long before I do... it's just too good to pass up. And I definitely look forward to recommending it to my patrons at my library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Invitation Worth Accepting 24. März 2008
Von LBR Lucas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In her most ambitious, personal, and gorgeous book yet, Kimberly Winston presents an engaging survey of the world's traditions with prayer beads, and invites us to try these tools ourselves as a way of deepening our own relationships with God.
I love Winston's writing. She has a warm, conversational way of imparting information. She educates without preaching. She offers options; she makes suggestions. There is a powerful undercurrent of kindness and affection throughout this book, as if we are all her good friends and she wants us to be happy. "Try this," she seems to be saying, "and let me know what happens."
I think I'll be referring to this book often. There's the accumulated information about various prayer traditions. There are the many prayers to help you get started. There is a practical section on making prayer beads that includes a thoughtful exploration of giving prayer beads. Perhaps best of all, there are sidebar quotes and verses on prayer that are surprising and inspiring.
A copy of this book would make a lovely gift for anyone who likes beading, is exploring spirituality, or loves prayer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful! 19. April 2008
Von Leigh Ann - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful book! Every page resonates prayer and calm. I have enjoyed touching the pictures, reviewing the quotes, and considering the bead making options and history. Each word and picture is a gift! Ms. Winston's book is not about art or prescribed structure. It is about opening yourself up to a mystery bigger than yourself and feeling the presence of the divine. What a rich evocative book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen PRAYER & MEANING with BEAUTIFUL beads 27. November 2008
Von L. J. Schrader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is NOT a PRETTY beading book with lots of pictures and inspiriations for design. What it definitely IS, is a book with ALL the meaning and explanation behind prayer beads and their use in and out of various religions.

It is the ULTIMATE guide for creating specific prayer beads for particular uses and gives not only the DIRECTIONS for how many beads are used, etc., but WHY they are designed that way through history. I had wanted to know more about creating prayer beads of different types (other than a typical rosary) and this book gives MANY options and explanations to help you choose what you would like to create...and to be able to explain the MEANING behind your creations to others. PRAYERS are included, too.

I only wish it had MORE pictures rather than just illustrations. I would have LOVED to have seen various CREATIONS based on the book...maybe in BEAD ONE, PRAY TOO #2!

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Guide to Making and Using CHRISTIAN Prayer Bead 19. August 2010
Von Mattie Macgregor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The book should have been named "Bead One, Pray Too: A Guide to Making and Using CHRISTIAN Prayer Beads." I agree with other reviewers in that the book is well-designed with a number of beautiful photographs, but I was unexpectedly thrown off by the blatant leaning toward Christianity (Orthodox and Catholic, in particular). Now, don't get me wrong -- I don't have a problem with this in principle. However, I was expecting a much more unbiased approach to the use and making of prayer beads throughout different cultures throughout the world: Hindu, Buddhist, Islam and others in addition to Christian. While there are about 10 pages of text (and a single picture in the whole book) devoted to the use of prayer beads throughout history and in different cultures, that's pretty much the sum and total of what you'll get about them. No information about the making of malas and/or their use in cultures such as India and Asia, for instance.

Other examples of non-partiality include the discussion of the word "bead" itself -- which completely ignores the root "buddh" from distinctly non-Christian culture in addition to the Christian root for "prayer" (hundreds of years later, I might add); or the assertion on page 5 that "In Buddhism, the number 108 represents the number of sins people can commit ..." I mean really, if you said this to a Buddhist practitioner, they'd look at you with a confused, blank stare -- the concept of "sin" is a decidedly Christian concept (as the term is used in the book).

Look elsewhere for non-partiality, e.g., "Bead of Faith" by Gray Henry, "A String and a Prayer" by Eleanor Wiley or "Dharma Beads: Making and Using Your Own Buddhist Malas" by Joanna Arettam. The latter two of these books include detailed information about the actual construction of prayer beads with instructions for how to make them yourself; the first is a great guide to their use throughout history in different cultures, and includes a companion DVD which nicely compliments the book.
