3rd edition. This Liturgikon -- an icon (image) of Liturgy -- is the finest, most comprehensive and accurate one-volume compendium of the services of the Orthodox Church available in English. The fruit of nearly ten years of examination and fresh translation of Greek and Arabic language liturgical texts, this work includes complete texts and rubrics for the daily services such as Vespers, Matins, Compline, as well as the Divine Liturgy, Paschal services, and numerous other prayers, blessings, and explanations of liturgical variants. Supplemented by a list of commemorations for every day of the year, and a glossary of liturgical terms. (The format of this book is consistent with the beauty of its contents -- gold-stamped black cloth binding, two-color printing to distinguish text from rubrics, the pages of rich cream stock). Anyone seriously seeking to know the mind of the Church -- and that mind is most fully revealed in her prayer -- would do well to ponder the texts of these prayers, so carefully yet brilliantly presented here.
