Ordering Information

All texts feature the original Ukrainian on the left page and English on the right, and though it is listed as 425 pages on the publisher's website, it's actually over 800 since most pages facing each other have the same number (as used in the ROCOR's Old Rite Prayer Book). It is hardcover, with the nice inclusion of three sewn-in ribbon markers. The translation, as I stated in the beginning, is modern English; some choices in rendering appear outside the norm (such as "Birth-Giver of God" instead of Theotokos or Mother of God), but it is still very readable.

For those who appreciate the completeness of Holy Trinity Monastery's or Holy Transfiguration Monastery's prayer books, but are more accustomed to using modern English (and even if you're not, like me) this edition is definitely worth adding to your prayer corner.

Yes, it could be used to follow Greek liturgies, providing you know where the differences between the slavic and byzantine practices differ. If not, you may find it confusing.

It follows the practices of the Ukranian Church which would be closer to the Russian Church than GOA or EP.
