edited by Bishop Demetri (Matta) Khoury. This huge volume is arranged chronologically, with lives of prophets, martyrs, apostles, monastics many with small icons, Dismissal Hymns and Kontakia and includes the service to All Saints in Palestine for the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. Presented in a modern narrative way, the hundreds of lives range from a paragraph to 5 pages in length. It is a handy source for information about the prophets and apostles (the 12 and the 70), about whom it is sometimes difficult to find quick information. There is an extensive glossary and listing of the Synaxarion of the Church of Jerusalem. 665 pages softcover.
