THE YEAR OF GRACE OF THE LORD: A SCRIPTURAL AND LITURGICAL COMMENTARY ON THE CALENDAR OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH BY A MONK OF THE EASTERN CHURCH
On the basis of worship of the Orthodox Church, The Year of Grace of the Lord takes the reader through the Sundays and feast days from the beginning of the year in September to the time of its completion after Pentecost. It is a guide to the scriptural readings and prayers of the calendar year and reveals the spiritual growth in Christ that is opened to us in them. In the author`s words, the liturgical year is “an abridgement of the history of salvation.”
A helpful list of reference notes, including historical and theological material, is given at the end of each chapter. This book will be of interest to anyone who wishes to know more about the development and pattern of the Orthodox liturgical year.
