The Holy Gospel book contains the full text of the four Gospels, marked according to liturgical use in the Orthodox Church. It uses the Eastern/Greek Orthodox Bible (EOB), a formal Modern English translation from the Patriarchal Text, the official Greek New Testament of the Orthodox Church. Designed for both private reading and liturgical use, The Holy Gospel contains an extensive, Pan-Orthodox calendar of liturgical readings; detailed instructions for use; a complete table of moveable dates through the year 2100; translation notes and footnotes; and more. Four ribbon bookmarks make use easy.
Attention to design was very important to this project. The Gospel Book 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 words of Christ contained within.
No home prayer library is complete without The Holy Gospel. It would likewise find a perfect place in a clergy home visit kit, travel altar, or church confessional. Makes a perfect gift for graduates and any occasion.
The Holy Gospel was made possible through the generous contributions of over 50 individuals who share our vision. Thank you.
