  • Author: Ryan Conover
    I truly love the additional morning and evening prayers which I think kind of fill out a morning and evening prayer rule that maybe at times in the older book felt overly abbreviated.

    I do wonder about the re-wording or new translation of prayers so many of us have learned over the years since the publishing of the original book.

    Whatever the wisdom behind it- it does put people in a position where they are forced to either keep their old prayer books in good working order, or completely re-learn such basic prayers as the trisagion. It’s no small thing to make a change to such important, familiar prayers- so it seems the need to do so should outweigh the cost which is that for some time people reading from the new prayer book will no longer be able to repeat the prayers they probably know so intimately by heart, but will be forced to re-learn them; reading them from the book or mixing them up before eventually memorizing the new ones if they even have the willingness to do so.

    I would love some sort of assurance that these will be the translations used for some years to come before I commit to re-learning what I’d committed to memory and prayed by heart for some years now.

    This new edition is a beautiful prayer book that I would recommend with some reservations.
