The Holy Apostle contains the full text of the Book of Acts and the New Testament Epistles, marked according to liturgical use in the Orthodox Church. It is an excellent companion to The Holy Gospel.
Designed for both private reading and liturgical use, The Holy Apostle contains an extensive, Pan-Orthodox calendar of liturgical readings; the complete complement of Prokeimenon and Alleluia verses;* detailed instructions for use; a complete table of moveable dates through the year 2100; translation notes and footnotes; and more. The Book of Revelation, which is not read liturgically in the Eastern tradition, is also included in the Appendix for personal reading. Four ribbon bookmarks makes use easy.
As with The Holy Gospel, attention to design was important to this project. The Holy Apostle features beautiful black-and-red printing and gorgeous full-page iconography and ornamentation. Complete with a handsome foil-stamped, cloth-bound hardcover, it is a dignified and holy book worthy of the sacred teachings of the Apostles contained within.
The Holy Apostle was made possible through the generous contributions of over 30 individuals who share our vision. Thank you.
* Psalm verses are from the Brenton Septuagint, checked against various Orthodox Psalters and lightly edited from Brenton's Elizabethan-style English to match the formal Modern English register used in the EOB New Testament.
