Is this a good prayer book for someone to learn some basic Orthodox prayers?


Thank you.

^Yes, it's fine.  Just a note that some people in my own congregation (which is Antiochian) prefer it to the Antiochian prayer book.  I guess it just depends on taste.

If I may be bold to also suggest the Holy Transfiguration Prayer Book or the Jordanville Prayer Book, those are both fine as well.

There have been several threads dedicated to this topic.  You may wish to search through those to find some other suggestions.  These have been mentioned, I'm sure.

I agree Scamandrius on his suggestion of the Jordanville and HTM prayerbooks. Both are very good. I would recomend even more the Old Orthodox Prayer Book which is the prayer book of the Old Rite printed by the Old Ritualists under ROCOR. I like it because it contains the Hours and other services and canons. The advantage of the HTM Prayer Book is that it contains Compline.
