(Pdf) [A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians] BY Holy Transfiguration Monastery
State just how convenient this is However it substitutes standard Evening prayers for Small Compline so if you re interested in something abbreviated for the evening you might need to look elsewhere Having enough Canons and Akathists to pass through the week and change through them as recommended in the preface is also very helpful and gives you a bit of variation without becoming totally monotonous in your prayers Also it wasn t immediately obvious to me but the Service of Preparation for Holy Communion includes a pre Communion canon My reservations though are small For one they idn Service of Preparation for Holy

Excellent Excellent prayer book At first I was little intimidated by Small Compline in place of Evening Prayers since it is longer but I uickly grew to love it and have started taking the opportunity to read an Akathist or Canon in the appointed place The book itself is of superb uality Possibly one of the best in the appointed place
The book itself is of superb uality Possibly one of the best prayer books in English The size isbook itself is of superb uality Possibly one of the best prayer books in English The size is small enough to grasp easily and hold uring a service if needed without much fatigue but big enough to allow for a comfortable grip The cloth binding also feels nice in the hand and the typography paper and even icons though sadly less so all look to have been selected with great care to produce a book that can be used for years to come I also really like that it includes not only the standard Morning prayers but extends to Small Compline the texts of Vespers Matins and even Pascha making itself handy for those services which you might not go to as often and allowing you to follow them much easily Indeed I feel this is almost a service book in
