"It is my intention that this book should be an easy-to-read guide to the multitude of Eastern Christian liturgical terms. The readership of this book is likely to be drawn from those who are looking for a simple explanation of a term rather than a definitive, lengthy, and scholarly explanation, which is beyond the intended scope of this book. For those readers who wish to find an Eastern Christian equivalent term for a familiar Western term, the Quick Reference Guide at the end of the book will be of help in directing such readers to the Dictionary proper". -- Intro.
