I have a rosary, and I use it...but not in the traditional way. More like the way John speaks of in his book.
Yes, this is the John Edwards of speaking to the dead fame...imagine my surprise when I saw him on the telly and he spoke of this book. I went to Amazon to check it out and ordered it. Glad I did. I have not finished the book but I have skimmed it..and I think this is a wonderful read for all Christians of course, but also for those of us who choose to connect with Spirit for Guidance in

Not much new here to me, but surprised and pleased that the author is so attuned to the Rosary. And I liked that the book had the accompanying CD with it, although the first book I bought had the CD with glue on it and it broke while trying to remove it from the back of the book. So I bought another one (very cheap on and was much more careful removing the CD with a razor blade, this time successfully.

Read it - re-read parts when I need inspiration. Pray at all hours of the day now - totally believe in the power of the Holy Mother. She has helped me in many ways especially since my mother passed away. John is a great inspiration and a big help to me in accepting the world after my parents passed over. Glad I bought this book.

This is an uplifting book. If we persist in our praying the Rosary, any problem can be solved. You do not need to be Catholic to say the Rosary. Powerful praying is for everyone. John writes in a very down to earth manner. I enjoy all of his books.

I've been amazed at how much I like this book. I actually want to learn the Rosary now. It comes with a CD which is helpful for a reformed Baptist like myself! I don't affiliate with any one religion- Only with God, the Creator.

John Edwards describes a non-traditional way to pray the Rosary. Very inspirational. It also includes an audio CD.

The best bit was Roma Downey reciting the rosary-the reason I bought it. I use it as a meditation guide in some instances, even though I'm not Catholic/christian.

I really don't know why I read this other than I like learning about how people experience their religions. This book felt rambling and strange. Eh.

Insightful humorous personal stories from John and excellent advice on incorporating prayer in our daily lives in a practical way. Quick read & comes with a CD.
