Does anyone know which translation is used in it?

If it's like other recent books, the physical qualities will be good, but the blurb on the Archdiocese webpage lacks details on the contents.

This book is golden!

My brother in Christ, Fr. Charles Baz, worked on the translation.  He has an expert command of the Arabic language, and translated it directly from the Arabic Apostolos into English.  I believe it uses the same King James-ish English that is standard in the Antiochian Archdiocese, but is more accurate than recent translations.

In Christ,

Fr. Michael

It's a church lectionary--not really meant for reading at home.

Major liturgical books like this tend to be well-made volumes, designed to get years of use.

With its glued binding, I'd say the OSB is overpriced.

That glue is made from pure bred horses from the hills of Spain!

The Antiochian books with which I am familiar leave a lot to be desired in quality, editing, translation, etc. The liturgikon and "five-pounder" have very wimpy bindings. Holy Transfiguration Monastery and the Erie, PA Old Riters have good bindings, but we have a long way to go to match Farnborough's or Baronius Press's Moroccan leather, fine stitching and ribbons. I'd be happy even with Oxford, though they've skimped on quality in Bible publishing of late.

Have you seen the new edition of the Liturgikon?  They fixed the binding; it is a very beautiful and well-made book.

I would hope so; I have a copy from 6+ years ago, and the binding started to come apart within the 1st year of use.  I'm considering chopping the binding off and having individual sections (or a few grouped sections) coil-bound together.

Fr. George:

Yeah, that's what a lot of us had to do.  But seriously, the new one is bound well.  I don't know if you've seen the new Antiochian Holy Week book; the Liturgikon is made in similar fashion.  Seriously, it's worth the buy.

My question is why do we need this?  The Apostolos we use is from the Greek Archdiocese printed in Brookline and it more than serves our needs.  All these incessant translation projects into English of prayer books and liturgical books is only going to increase the confusion as to which English version is "better."  The HTM books have the highest quality and, in my opinion, the best translations.  Why go with anything else?
