Compliled by the fathers at Holy Cross Monastery, Wayne, WV
Spiralbound, 76 pages
For many years, there has not been available to ROCOR priests and deacons, a decent and easy-to-use English language service book for the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. After over 12 years of editing and improving on existing texts, the fathers at Holy Cross Monastery have compiled an instructive and workable service book which uses common ROCOR prayers and petitions and which has proven to be an indispensable aid to serving the Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts.
Special attention is paid to the formatting in this book, so that it is very "user-friendly." Unique parts of the service are emphasized so that the clergy can more easily navigate the complicated parts of the service. This new book is also very beautiful. The artwork used throughout the book is inspired by ancient illuminated texts which have been faithfully rendered and recreated, making this service book a joy to behold. It is full color and nearly 80 pages long. The font used in the book is large and easy to read. The book is 5.5 in. x 8.5 in. and is spiral bound. This type of binding makes it easier to use because the book lays flat on the priest's analogies.
