I would have given it 4.5 star rating, if it had been available! The Prayer Book has just about everything an Orthodox Christian needs in one place. My only disappointment was that it did not include the Service of Compline.

I am a catechumen, so my opinion is not based from experience. But given how little I know about Orthodoxy, I'm very glad to have found this book specifically. I saw a few different kinds on Amazon, but they didn't include all of the prayers (or Liturgy) found in this book. Of course, my prayer life is especially enhanced. Coming from Protestantism, where prayer was hit and miss and extremely laid back, to have a sense of order to my prayers has greatly improved my prayer life altogether.

I really like this prayer book. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is the wording of the Divine Liturgy doesn't exactly sync up with the wording of the DL at my ROCOR parish. It still says the same things, it just is phrased differently. It would also be nice to have some midday prayers and suchlike.

It's great and complete. If you combine it with the Book of Hours, you can pray most of the hours daily.

This is the best prayer book that I have ever had. It has many prayers and services in it. It is easy to follow and to understand.

A wonderful prayer book, with a wealth of information. Truly, every Orthodox Christian should have this Prayer Book in their lives!

This is the traditional prayer that I have used for years-and hopefully will continue to do so for many to come. I purchased my last prayer book in 2005 and it lasted for 10 years until I wore the covers off!
I hope you will take comfort and grow spiritually by the use of this prayer book in your daily, devotional and corporate worship.

That this particular prayer book is preferred by our family is clear since I just ordered 3 more. My old copy, still in excellent condition, seems to regularly grow legs and take walks around our house, so I'm hoping that having one for everyone will cure that phenomenon. The pages have a good feel and weight and are easily read. The evening prayers are particularly good.
I must also add that everything I've ordered, including this, have arrived in perfect condition and were meticulously packaged for safe travel. This may be a small detail to some, but it is of great importance to me and I greatly appreciate the extra effort.
