“Another Bead, Another Prayer is the second in what one can only hope will become a whole series of books for Protestants about prayer beads and their role as an enriching part of both spiritual formation and religious devotion. Even the complete novice will find here not only the prayers appointed to each set of beads but also, and blessedly, easy-to-follow, deeply pastoral guidance into both the practice and the prayers.”

"Prayer beads for Protestants? We live in a time when many are reaching
toward God and also being formed by God in new and exciting ways. Kristen and Max Vincent teach us the value of a practice of prayer that will be new
to many of us, yet one that is based in the ancient wisdom of the church."
– Will Willimon, United Methodist bishop, retired, and professor of the
Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School
