The Holy Apostle, also known as the Apostolos, Apostol, or Epistle Book, contains the full text of the Book of Acts and the Pauline and Catholic Epistles, 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 of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the official Greek translation of the Orthodox Church. Designed for both private reading and liturgical use, The Holy Apostle contains an extensive, Pan-Orthodox calendar of liturgical readings and associated Psalm verses; detailed instructions for use; a complete table of moveable dates through the year 2100; translation notes and footnotes; the Book of Revelation in the appendix (as it is not read liturgically in the Orthodox Church); and more. Four ribbon bookmarks make use easy.

Attention to design was very important to this project. The epistle 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.

A perfect companion to The Holy Gospel, no home prayer library is complete without The Holy Apostle. It would likewise find a perfect place in a clergy home visit kit or travel altar. Makes a perfect gift for graduates and any occasion.

    The Holy Apostol

    Posted by Joseph on Jul 20th 2021

    A very clear, consistent and easily understood translation of the Patriarchal Text of 1904, in a beautifully printed and bound volume. Thank you!

    Posted by Christian on Jul 30th 2020

    Just like the Gospel, this book is well designed, and arranged it is becoming "my to go to" when need to read a N.T. passage.

    The Holy Apostle

    Posted by Very Rev. Ronald Hatton on Jul 20th 2020

    After having bought the Holy Gospel Book, I was hoping that there would be a follow-up with the Apostol. I enjoy the translation. It is a handy size, especially if going to a retreat or other event where the Divine Liturgy will be taking place. Thank you!

    Best Small Epistle Book around

    Posted by Very Rev. Protopresbyter Bryan Eyman on Jan 15th 2020

    I have been looking for an Epistle Book like this for many years. It is very well made, readable, and appropriate for the Liturgical Services.

    Great for portability

    Posted by Fr. Paul Schellbach on Jan 14th 2020

    This is a great companion to the Holy Gospel. As an Orthodox Priest it is great for services in missions. I would have loved to have this when I was an Army Chaplain.
