More About The Church Publishing Imprint
Church Publishing is quite literally our foundational imprint. Launched as the Church Hymnal Corporation, the original church publishing house was dedicated to publishing a single work, The Hymnal 1918, which remains in print to this day.
In the nearly 100 years since its first publication, Church Publishing has emerged as a principal provider of liturgical and musical resources for The Episcopal Church, along with works on church leadership, pastoral care and Christian formation. With its growing portfolio of professional books and resources, Church Publishing was recognized in 1997 as the official publisher for the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Simultaneously through the years, Church Publishing has consciously broadened its program, reach, and service to the church by publishing books for and about the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Prayer Book for the Armed Services?
Pocket prayer book to have in your kit Mar 5, 2010
This is a rugged pocket book for all Christian denominations based upon Book of Common prayer. It has sections to assist Catholics, Jewish, Islamics and Spanish speaking in times of need along with Bible and Psalm selections. Consider it the 'Leatherman tool of prayer.' 'Foxhole religion' comes fast WHEN THINGS GO WRONG.
