Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
This book explains how to create personal prayer beads and magickal jewelry. It is important to remember that at one time the practice of prayer beads was essential to many religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, as well as the Pagan earth religions.
The books offers keen insights into the use and practice of prayer beads. There are perspectives on how certain stones lead to healings. The book is well-written in a mellow style which promotes ease of learning, application, enjoyment, and learning. In a sense, it is a hands-on guide to spirituality.
There are ten chapters to the book. The following interesting topics are covered, among others: why have Pagan rosaries, how to choose and design a rosary of a personal nature, Druid Rosaries, Wiccan Rosaries, and experiencing the moment of using rosaries. A glossary of terms, suppliers, and bibliography are also include in the book. For those readers wishing to contact the authors, Greer is found at www.thearchdruidreport.com and Vaughn can be found at www.clare-vaughn.livejournal.com.
This book has a wide appeal and should find a ready audience. An engaging nonfiction work, it holds the reader's attention from beginning to end. Nicely done, and congratulations to the authors.
