A Psalter for Prayerᅠis the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed to read the Psalter at home according to an Orthodox tradition that reaches back to the time of the desert fathers, known popularly as the 'cell rule'. In addition, the contents include many texts, traditionally printed in Orthodox Psalters, that are not easily found in English, such as the Rite for Singing the Twelve Psalms, directions for reading the Psalter for the Departed and much more.ᅠ

The Psalms and Nine Biblical Canticles have been adapted from the classic Miles Coverdale translation of the Book of Psalms and the King James Version of the Bible. The text has been carefully edited to agree with the original Greek of the Septuagint, as well as to the Latin and Church Slavonic translations, and has been approved for use within the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.

Printed in large print on acid-free paper, with rubrics in red, this book is sturdily bound to withstand regular use. It is further enhanced by the two gold marker ribbons.A Psalter for Prayerᅠis the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed to read the Psalter at home according to an Orthodox tradition that reaches back to the time of the desert fathers, known popularly as the 'cell rule'.

  1. **Almost** Perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jun 2015

    I purchased out of interest in the "cell rule" whereby portions of the Psalter are prayed in private. Having been raised on the Authorized Version (KJV) as a child, the prose of the Coverdale Psalter upon which this is based was most welcome.

    With the beginning prayer, kathisma prayers, ending prayers, and additional material, this psalter was everything I hoped it would be. In addition, the book is beautifully printed and the binding is fantastic.

    This psalter is near perfect but for one major draw back....the size.

    I had read that the format was large but was still taken back when I received it. Think something coffee table sized here. While it is certainly easy to read, it is more suitable for a lectern than holding in one's hands during private prayers. This, in my opinion, limits its usefulness as book of private devotion.

    I would like to have seen this published in a more easily handled format, similar in size to the Psalter According to the Seventy.
