It is very inspiring prayer book. I had another the common prayer book, which was used at the Episcopal churches. While this new 1928 BCP is nice, it suffers in comparison to some of the other work done by Oxford Press. My final quibble is with the text

It is very inspiring prayer book. But I seldom used it. But this common prayer book I use it to pray everyday. Personally, I love the KJV bible better, and this one is exact what I am looking for. This common prayer book uses in UK, so we pray for the Queen and the royal families as well. Unfortunately, when I got this book, which already has a split inside the book. My final quibble is with the text. Don't expect clean, crisp and easy to read typeset.

I love the '28 prayerbook and use it so often that I needed a replacement. I thought I'd go for the real leatherbound edition this time, hoping it would last longer . . . but I find I am still using the worn older edition I bought 15 years ago because it has three ribbons while this has only one. As all who are familiar with this prayerbook must know, five ribbons might be more helpful . . . but fewer is no help whatsoever. Which one page shall I mark with the ribbon? The lectionary? The current collect? The next holy day? Morning prayer? Evening prayer? Holy Communion? The Litany? My current place in the psalms? I'll end up using Post-it flags because I won't have enough to mark for one prayer session at a time.

The binding is leather over hardboard, not the flexible leather often found on Bibles. Somehow, I'd not expected that. I'm sure this will be sturdier and probably will help it hold up better once I actually get around to switching over to it. It's a tad thicker than the soft-cover edition, but otherwise much the same size. I just wish it had at least three ribbons instead of only one.

I am very pleased with this book. It is well worth the money. The bonded leather cover is very sturdy and will hold up under much use, I'm sure. While the pages are photocopied (as noted on the opening pages) they are very clear and do not look photocopied in any way. The gilt edge paper is high quality, very nice. I'm not Episcopalian, but I love this book and the gentle prayers to read. Look forward to many years of reading!

Since I graduated and went off to college I've not had a BCP in the house. I finally decided that I wanted one of my own so I went to the local Christian bookstore but all they had was the more recent edition. I prefer the language of the 1928 for the family morning and evening prayers, Creeds, etc. This example is very well executed. The binding feels robust but flexible enough for comfortable reading at a desk. The pages are light and the edging is elegant. The cover is soft to the touch but certainly rigid enough to protect the contents through a lifetime of frequent use. There are two marker ribbons which is very convenient so I can keep my place in the Psalter and at the family prayers. In retrospect, I would have liked to have my name embossed on the cover to personalize it but overall I am very satisfied with this purchase and the value for my dollar.

This is a pretty fair/good print of the 1928 Prayer book. This edition is printed by Oxford University Press. Mind you, this is not the same prayer book whose image you see on the Amazon web site; the navy blue one with "1928" in large characters; what you get is the one you see when you respond to the "Look inside" prompt; a reddish brown hardback with a fine gold cross on the front.

The print quality of the characters is good but not super super sharp, as it looks as if it has been printed from scanned page images. However at the 5 1/4" by 7 3/4" size, the print is sufficiently large to be easily readable. Inside it says that it has been photographically reproduced.

The pages are somewhat thinner than a standard prayer book, but certainly a long way from being tissue paper thin, like you get with some missals. The book is about 1" thick while my 1928 prayer book that I have printed by the Anglican Parishes Association is about 1 5/8" thick.

The book comes with a couple of tassels to mark pages. I have gotten so used to using pieces of post-it note that I wouldn't miss them if they weren't there.

Overall, I recommend this book.

I grew up with rote prayers, then switched to churches that pray spontaneously, and neither extreme seemed right to me: the BCP seems a perfect balance. It teaches us to pray as Christians should, in my opinion. Oxford has done us a great service by offering this reproduction of the 1928 BCP. It has everything under the hood that the originals do.

The book is very well made and is fairly portable, with a stout slipcase. I'd much rather have paid a few more dollars for real leather--bonded leather looks ratty after a while--but the protective slipcase might help keep the book in good condition for years.

The contents of the book are FIVE stars, no contest. This edition loses two stars because of navigation. This book is not regularly read cover to cover or even chapter by chapter. It is more like a tool so that the reader goes to different sections all the time. thus, this e-version is clunkier than a bound book. But, I still use this kindle version every day because I like e-books. My bound book copy is getting fragile & it's hard to find new 1928 BCP books. Thank goodness we do have an e-version.
  • Tojahn
It's all there, but I'm a little disappointed in the appearance of the content. It looks more like a facsimile than a fresh printing of the BCP.
This is a personal edition of the 1928 BCP. It has two yellow ribbons for marking pages and travels well. However, you need to be careful with the ribbons when it comes to turning pages. The pages are pretty thin and I've managed to tear a couple (just a little) with the ribbon inadvertently.

We got these as gifts for confirmations. The presented to page in the front is perfect for this.
