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 4 includes supplications in times of various calamities such as natural disasters or plagues, prayers for aid in receiving instruction, and before journeys.
