1928 Book of Common Prayer Jun 4, 2008
I like this very much. I use it often, not just on Sunday. I do wish however it would have been leather bound with soft covers. Even at a larger price I would prefer the soft leather.
Great Edition Oct 19, 2007
While I was hoping that this book wasn't "bonded" leather it was. However, because the book was a hard cover, the leather didn't really matter. It's a nicer looking prayer book than the more popular cloth prayer books. Oddly, two of the pages were glued together in the "morning prayer" section and am not sure if that was just a defect of my copy or if it is a defect of all. But besides that the two page markers, the gilded edges and the book as a whole is great.
I'm a newer continuing Anglican - this is a good book ! Aug 29, 2007
I spent a while on an this site waiting list trying to get an Oxford Press 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Since that didn't work out, I spent some time looking on eBay for a used copy - and saw all of the legitimate 1928 BCP's getting snapped up by others at $30 or more for particularly fine versions. After observing this demand for months, I was dismayed to find out that with the millions of volumes of this site offerings, this particularly valuable book was relatively difficult to obtain. Thus, I was very pleased on a visit to this site for another purchase to see this edition with the notation IN STOCK (I notice the current message says "one left - more on the way"). I think non-continuing Anglicans don't realize this is the official Prayer Book for a number of churches and denominations; to them, this may be yet another edition of a book for which a "newer, better" edition exists (newer not always being better). Also, that our numbers are growing as more individuals and parishes confront the issues concerning current politics and controversies. Frankly, amidst the plethora of misinformation concerning translations and allegedly "evolving" editions, I have now learned how faithful this 1928 BCP is - the Nicene Creed, as well as other prayers, are faithful to the words spoken by centuries of Anglicans. For those searching for faithfulness in worship despite politics and agendas, for Americans and many other English-speakers, this is the version to get. As for the book itself... The picture here is that of the box. The actual book is hard-cover, and well-bound - with two ribbon markers (which we Anglicans need!). The typeface is similar to actual older editions. I am very satisfied and pleased. I pray that this site will continue to supply these fine volumes to a hungry market, and that we of faith will tell others so that this 1928 BCP remains readily available.
