Author: Woolfenden, Gregory W.
One way in which we can increase the talents given to us by God is “to celebrate a service in splendor” and thereby “communicate the word to those untaught.” (From the Aposticha of the Matins of Great and Holy Tuesday.) A Practical Handbook for Divine Services will serve as an invaluable guide to all -- priests, deacons, servers, readers and singers --who seek to increase their God given talent in fulfilment of these words.
It will also encourage all the laity who desire to enter more fully into an understanding of the Church’s Typicon, the “rule” which governs how Divine worship is offered in the church, and to internalize the principles that underpin it. Whilst drawn from Russian sources, the texts also touch upon differences found in Greek usage. This is also a valuable resource for any student of Christian liturgy.

I have found this to be the best practical guide to serving for deacons and priests in the English language. Not only is it invaluable for newly ordained clergy, but can even be of use for experienced clergy. I have distributed and used it in a practicum for diaconal candidates, and have ordered more copies for an upcoming practicum, as the last group greatly appreciated it. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!
