"Two prominent hierarchs have given their episcopal endorsement to a newly released volume of homilies by The Very Rev. Dr. John Behr, dean of St. Vladimir's. Both Archbishop Demetrios (Trakatellis), primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, and also Bishop Maxim (Vasiljevic) bishop of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America, offered praises, printed on the back cover of The Cross Stands, While the World Turns: Homilies for the Cycles of the Year, released this month."

Is this common, or does it mean they really, really approve of this collection?

I do not know why they endorsed this book, nor whether it is common. OTOH, I was privileged to hear a lecture by him and I have got to say that he is truly gifted.
