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 II: The Sanctification of the Temple and Other Ecclesiastical and Liturgical Blessings: Besides detailed services for the blessing of churches, other blessings include those for icons and other liturgical objects, and prayers and dismissals specific to various points of the church year.
