Can anyone reccomend a good service book that includes the Lenten services? (Compline, Pre-Sanctified Liturgy, Vespers, etc.) I'm looking for the "pew edition" and one that goes along with GOA style services. (Must be in English. I cannot read/speak Greek.)
They didn't have anything at the Church bookstore, and I didn't see anything on the Orthodox Marketplace or on Holy Cross' website.
Unfortunately you'll be hard-pressed to find all the books in a centralized location; heck, you'll be hard-pressed to find all the books in one volume.
The major Lenten (pre-Holy Week) services are: 3rd Saturday of Souls, Great Compline, Presanctified Liturgy, and Salutations/Akathist. Each one has its own book. PM me, and I'll give you a few locations to call and find them...
