Akathist hymns are especially suitable for use at home or when travelling, when access to regular Church services is difficult or impossible. This attractively done volume presents a generous selection: Six to Our Lord, four to the Theotokos, and those to several saints: St. Alexis the Man of God; St. George; St. Herman of Alaska; St. John the Baptist; St. John of Kronstadt; St. John the Theologian; the Archangel Michael; St. Nicholas; St. Panteleimon; St. Seraphim of Sarov; St. Simon the Zealot; and an Akathist for the Repose of the Departed (this may be of special value for those many of us who must remember in prayer friends and relatives who have died apart from the Church). An appendix provides some commonly used melodies for chanting the hymns. Hardbound
