The [[Holy Trinity Monastery (Jordanville, New York)|Jordanville]] ''Prayer Book'': good translation (for the most part) and reasonably complete. It uses the ''Psalter According to the Seventy'' produced by [[Holy Transfiguration Monastery (Brookline, Massachusetts)|Holy Transfiguration Monastery]]. For [[ROCOR]] parishioners, this is the best one to use, because of the translation. The edition currently available is the work of Fr. Lawrence (Campbell). This book is very similar to the one published by Holy Transfiguration. The main difference is that there are many additional morning and evening prayers.
''A Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians'' (translated from the Greek and published by [ Holy Transfiguration Monastery]): follows Athonite Greek usage; contains Morning Prayers and Prayers at Mealtime, and the complete service of Small Compline, Vespers, Matins, and the Divine Liturgy, together with the principle hymns of the feasts of the year, and the complete Service of Pascha. Also included are the Akathist Hymn to our Sweet Lord Jesus Christ, the Akathist Hymn to the Most Holy Theotokos, a supplicatory Canon canon to our Lord Jesus Christ, both the Small and Great Supplicatory Canons to the Most Holy Theotokos (translated to fit the Greek melodies), a Supplicatory supplicatory canon to the Guardian Angel, and the Communion Prayers.
''An Orthodox Prayer Book'' (bilingual; modern English translation by Archimandrite Ephrem (Lash) from the Greek and originally published by Oxford University Press; revised 2nd edition by Nigel Lynn Publishing on behalf of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain): follows the standard settings of Greek morning prayers, evening prayers and small [[Compline]] as found in the ''Synekdemos''. This translation is harmonious with the Oxford University Press edition of the ''Divine Liturgy'' (published with the blessing of the [[Ecumenical Patriarch]]) and with the wide range of liturgical material published on Fr Ephrem's [ web-site].
