A New Greek Orthodox Liturgy Book For Sunday Services
« on: April 28, 2011, 01:59:22 PM »
Hello,

I am considering publishing, with the help of a few friends in the clergy,a new Greek Orthodox Liturgy Book for Sundays.  It would supplant the GOA "Green Book" and contain commentary/reflections/pictures that explain what is going on in the Liturgy.

Traditionally, the English and Greek Parts of the Liturgy are in parallel, with Greek on the left page and English on the Right.  Any thoughts on how to optimize layout so that commentary could be added?  Id be interested to know, as none of us currently in this project are copy editors.  If we use your idea, your name will be mentioned in the credits.

Thank you

You could divide the page into the top part with the bulk of the text, and then a line toward the bottom, where we would see the commentary- much like footnotes.

Like this:

Commentary

It's very simple, but most of the textbooks I used in school looked like that.  :)  Best of luck!

Please do not publish it unless your Synod approves it.
