How is this prayer book?
« on: February 28, 2016, 08:16:55 AM »
Hello everyone,

I would like to order a prayer book, but I am somewhat limited because I can only order from Amazon (I live in Vietnam and get a deal on Amazon shipping).

Would you recommend this prayer book?

http://www.amazon.com/Prayer-Book-Holy-Trinity-Monastery/dp/0884651754/ref=pd_sim_14_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=510lLFILN6L&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR112%2C160_&refRID=05B1V48R0Q7VGE5T8365

Thank you.

The particular prayer book you linked to is pretty much the standard prayer book of ROCOR.  It is a traditional prayer book with longer prayer rules.  Not everyone in ROCOR uses it, of course.

I am more familiar with "A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians" published by Holy Transfiguration Monastery and the "Old Rite Prayer Book."

All three prayer books are somewhat popular.

Until you can get a hard copy, there are also several prayer books available in electronic format, for free or very cheaply. This one (alternative edition here) is free to download and print. If you don't mind reading on a screen, I can recommend this one and this one (which follow the Russian tradition, like the Jordanville), as well as this one (GOA standard, using more modern language).
