I recently purchased a book entitled Saint Andrews Service Book from the Antiochian Church. I was under the impression that this book (which is *in* print) was the an official liturgical book. Am I wrong? Joffridus


The term we use on OrthodoxWiki is usually "mainstream" rather than "canonical," as there really isn't agreement on what the latter constitutes. In any event, I don't think a mention of that is even required, honestly. The purpose of our articles is to be descriptive, not to prescribe practices or to make judgments on canonicity.
