Collected in the four large volumes of the Book of Needs are the prayers and blessings designated for use -- as the title indicates -- in specific situations or for specific individuals. As such, the Book of Needs contrasts with the Liturgikon and the Horologion, which contain the fixed services of the Church gathered for worship. Essential for priests, these durable, handsomely-bound volumes can be studied with profit by any Orthodox Christian who wishes to know the mind of the Church. The translation is of a pleasing liturgical English; full notes and rubrics accompany the texts. Volume I: The Holy Mysteries: Prayers for a woman after giving birth, at the naming of a child, the office of Baptism (normal and emergency), the complete services for the reception of converts, the order of Confession, the office for emergency Communion, the services of Matrimony, of Anointing, of Holy Orders, of the Blessing of Waters, and of Monastic Tonsure. 393 pp.
