As we, all know, over time things change and some practices are eliminated for convenience. Our practices in serving our God through our services are no different. Not only we have forgotten their significance but we also have added things that are foreign to the Orthodox Faith such as ecumenism, modernism and severe changes to our liturgical cycle, such as ignoring the Typikon, introducing instrumental and polyphonic music and others. This book is trying to rejuvenate some of the Traditions of the Orthodox Church. As such, it addresses some of the Teleturgical practices and relates their usage to the early practices of the apostolic age. I hope that both the clergy and the cantors will find this volume helpful. For the general reader we hope that some of the practices we reference as part of our Orthodox services will be better understood. The flow of the content begins with an overview of Tradition and it follows with some of the basic and necessary books used in our liturgical services. The discussion continues with the daily services, Holy Liturgy and closes with a summary. This book also has four appendices. The first one gives an overview of the Apostolic Constitutions with short commentaries and the second one includes the Didache in both Greek and English. The third appendix covers the liturgical Traditions and the last one discusses the early Christian liturgies.
