Publisher's Description

Reaching back hundreds of years, this volume is the first major English edition to include all the prayers needed to read the Slavic Psalter at home in the Orthodox tradition. The contents include many texts traditionally printed in Orthodox Psalters and not easily found in English. With psalms and biblical canticles adapted from the classic Coverdale translation of the Book of Psalms and the King James Version of the Bible, this record has been carefully edited to agree with the original Greek of the Septuagint as well as with the Latin and Slavonic church translations.

Author Bio

David Mitchell James worked as a translator for the U.S. Army, specializing in French and Slovenian. After taking early retirement from his position as marketing director for the North Shore Music Theater he traveled to Russia to study its language. He lives in Rye, New Hampshire.
