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 of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the official Greek translation 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.

A perfect companion to The Holy Apostle, 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.

    Love it!

    Posted by Ryan on Aug 28th 2019

    I love having this Gospel. It looks very classy and attractive, but very usable! Can't wait for the release of the Epistles, too!

    This edition of the Holy Gospel is excellent! The font is easy to read; the text is well laid out; the various tables and indexes are helpful. I would have preferred icons on the incipit pages to each Gospel. The publisher should produce the same text in an altar size. The price is more than reasonable but the postage from the US to Canada is far too high.

    A must-have for every home

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 9th 2019

    Absolutely stunning: from the the print quality, to the images, to font, etc. It is so pleasant to use! And it is very reader-friendly: the calendar at the the back is complete and easy to use, and the notes in the margins are clear. We absolutely love it! And we look forward to the Epistle book.
