I remember seeing this online, the parts that were online that is, and I really enjoy it, so I am thinking of ordering the two volume set through life-n-light. I would just like to know what people think of it, particularly those people who have it.

thanks, and peace,

I don't have a print copy, but I often view the online Prologue at http://www.westsrbdio.org/prolog/prolog.htm  I would assume it is the same translation and the only differences may be in the quality of the materials used in the books.

Can anyone tell me what the title actually means: "Prologue from Ohrid"?  A prologue usually comes before something.  What's the something here?

Strobert,

I believe that Ochrid is the monastery from which St. Nicholai Velmirovic compiled this resource.  Not sure exactly how prologue is being used, perhaps St. Nicholai meant it to be a prologue for the Book of Life?

The web says:

"Prologue"-a Preface or Introduction to the profound and wonderful system of Christian knowledge-is a word that our Slavic fathers substituted for another Greek word, Synaxarion"

Well, I just received the two colume edition (wow, fedex is fast - maybe light-n-life delivers from near my house Cheesy ). I read the entry for today and I was perusing through it.... and all I can say is wow; there surely is nothing else on my mind that I think I could have better spent the end of my christmas money on.

peace,
