The Book of Guidance (Kitab al-Huda) is a collection of canons and rules for the direction of the Maronite Church and its members. It was originally written in Syriac, but survives only in an Arabic translation by a bishop named David for a certain Joseph, whose letter to the translator is also included here with a response from David. The basis for the edition is a Vatican manuscript copied in 1402. There are introductions and tables of contents in both Arabic and French. The volume will be of importance for students and scholars of eastern Christianity and Christian Arabic literature.
