This Horologion is somewhat larger than the one published by Holy Tinity Russian Orthodox Monastery (about five hundred pages) and follows the Greek Orthodox traditions. Both feature the essential material to do daily prayers in the Orthodox Christian tradition. This review includes the information supplied by the publisher, Holy Transfiguration Monastery. Of the two, I prefer this one. I not only find it easier to read but it contains supplementary materials in addition to the basic materials of the Horologion

Translated from the Greek by the Holy Transfiguration Monastery

"The Great Horologion is a handbook for anyone who wishes to pray, either in common or in private, with the words and forms bequeathed us by the Apostles, the holy Fathers, and all the Saints, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It provides not only the order of the services, but supplies also the invariable texts which form their structure. In it are found the psalms which are appointed for the prescribed times of prayer throughout the whole day and night, for, according to the Psalmist: `Seven times a day have I praised Thee for the judgments of Thy righteousness' (Psalm 118:164), and: `At midnight I arose to give thanks unto Thee for the judgments of Thy righteousness' (Psalm 118:62). Also herein are the texts of fixed hymns and prayers which are part of the daily cycle.

This is the text that we use in our parish for daily services. It's still challenging to navigate through, but until someone can meld all these different Orthodox texts and rules together, this gets the job done.

Much more information than the Russian Book of Hours. This is the best one to buy of the two. I highly recommend that any Orthodox Christian get this book as it contains the daily prayers in large print.
