"Part history, part missal and part crafting how-to, this is a treasure trove of faith and spiritual contemplation. Winston, an award-winning religion journalist, occasional PW contributor and avid beader, takes readers on a fascinating journey through the tradition of prayer beads. From the third century B.C. through the late 20th century, she touches on a variety of world religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, the Baha'i faith and others. A thorough introduction to both the Catholic and Anglican rosaries, complete with stunning photographs and instructional diagrams, rounds out the historical portion of the text. The second part, which is even more inviting, reveals myriad ways to use the tactile to reach the spiritual. From poems to psalms to saints, Winston offers bead-by-bead suggestions, all the time emphasizing that "prayer beads are a tool for prayer and not an object of devotion... they are not there to be the focus of your prayers, but to help you focus your prayers." Practically, the final section provides the nitty-gritty of tools, materials and techniques necessary for creating individual rosaries and chains, complete with resources for choosing and finding particular types of beads. The combination of Winston's personal anecdotes with her obvious knowledge of and love for the practice makes this a lovely addition to any praying person's repertoire." -Publishers Weekly, March 2008 "Readers will enjoy the glimpse into the ancient, yet contemporary, path to holiness that they'll find in Bead One, Pray Too, the definitive guide to making and using prayer beads. This book is also a must-have for those who love the art and craft of beading."-SirReadaLot.org, April 2008 "Winston combines inspirational stories with hands-on strategies to help people of all skill levels. Line drawings accompany the beading instructions in part three. Included is a selection of blessings, prayers, and liturgies for beads."-Episcopal Teacher, Summer 2008 "Winston provides a list of resources for beads, a bibliography broad enough for Crystals for Beginners and Garry Wills' The Rosary, and an invitation to join her on her prayer bead journey at www.kimberlywindston.word-press.com" -Victoria Advocate, May 21, 2008
