How large is it?

Roughly 8" tall by 6" wide. Almost 900 pages. Quite hefty and definitely not pocket-sized, I actually leave mine at home when I go to church. I have heard rumours that they will be producing a lighter version that is not so comprehensive--really this contains more than the average layperson would ever need--but checking with my sources, that project isn't off the ground yet.


It's not 8 x 6.  You made me dig up a ruler and actually measure it.  It's just a tad taller than 6" (~6.5') and wider than 4" (~4.25) and about 1.5" thick.

Wink

....a bit thick for a pocket, but, nonetheless comprehensive, and well worth having.



Liza- He's talking about the much more comprehensive "Good Shepherd" prayerbook published by UOCC (Canada). Which I believe is also out of print. It seems like this book is almost a Ukrainian equivalent to the Greek Synekdemos.

Are we still talking about the UOCC prayerbook, published in 2007?? I have one in my hand right now, and though I don't have a physical ruler, the online ruler at iRuler.net, adjusted to my screen resolution, measures the book at 7.5" tall, 5" wide, 1" thick. My previous measurement was more rough, based on an icon I have of that size.

The measurements you give remind me more of the previous edition, that was released pre-2006.

Recently learned a revised, larger second edition of this prayer book was published in 2013 and is available from the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada's Consistory Church Goods Store. Here's some pics of the new edition:

http://www.pinterest.com/pastyrCA/%D0%B4%D0%BE%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%B9-%D0%BF%D0%B0%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8%D1%80-%D0%BC%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA-good-shepherd-prayer-book/

It's easily the most impressive prayer book I've come across (despite its use of contemporary English).

There appears to be a Greek Catholic bishops coat of arms in the front, is this a reissue of a Greek Catholic text cleaned up for Orthodox use?

On closer inspection I think I can make out Peter Mogila in Cyrillic on either side of the Coat of Arms.  Odd that he made use of the Latin hat.

He was Latin (or rather, Roma(i)n(ian)) after all.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
