Greetings all!

I hope this thread is in the right place. I have the Old Orthodox prayer book put out by the Old Rite ROCOR church in Erie, PA. I love it as I am a big linguaphile, studying Russian in school at present. I especially like the bilingual aspects of the book in addition to it's thorough content. Is there a Greek prayer book similar to the Old Orthodox one with Greek on one side and English on the other that is close to having the same vast content? My girlfriend and I are going to start studying Greek soon and it would be awesome if we could enrich our prayers by practicing our Greek (I know the prayers are not "Modern Greek"). Thanks for your time! Smiley

I don't think you'll find a bilingual edition as vast as the Old Orthodox Prayer Book (it's hard to find a single language prayer book that has anywhere near that amount of stuff!), but the ones soderquj suggested are pretty good. Fr. Ephrem's new bilingual edition of the Divine Liturgy is excellent, it's published by the Archdiocese of Thyateira.
