Prayer Book in Accordance with the Tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church
Author: All Saints of Alaska Orthodox Church
This beautifully produced contains a selection of carefully and thoughtfully chosen prayers and services of the Orthodox Church. Produced by a small Orthodox publisher in British Columbia, Canada, this book has been thusforth not well known in the US. It contains many of the basic prayers that we are all used to in the morning and evening prayers, but also contains many other prayers that many of us may not have seen, including prayers from Archimandrite Sophrony of Essex, the Optina Elders, and Saint Patrick of Ireland. Also included is the very popular but hard to find "Glory to God for All Things" Akathists. The book also contains over 100 pages of counsels from the Holy Fathers on prayer.
