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

Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is the short title of a number of related prayer books used in the Anglican Communion, as well as by other Christian churches historically related to Anglicanism. The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was a product of the English Reformation following the break with Rome. The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English

The "Book of Common Prayer" - the title of this Article - is that of the Church of England. To cover all books of common prayer, including other books which the C of E now often uses, there should be a new Article "Books of Common Prayer"; and, for clarity, there should be two more new Articles : "Prayer Books of the Church of England" and "The Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England".

It is very inspiring prayer book. I had another the common prayer book, which was used at the Episcopal churches. 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. Since I love the contents, I keep it.
May God tender mercy be always us, Amen!

By no means does one have to be an Anglican to read this book, to profit from it, enjoy it, and treasure it. I am a Catholic myself, but I recognize in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer one of the truly great achievements of the English language. It easily stands with Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer, and Eliot, and deservedly so. The Miles Coverdale Psalms (which comprise nearly a full third of this book) are the most readable, singable, and prayable English translation of these timeless prayers ever.

Just compare these lines from Psalm 24 in the Book of Common Prayer, "Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors: and the King of glory shall come in." with this from The Liturgy of the Hours, "O gates, lift high your heads; grow higher ancient doors. Let him enter, the king of glory." Ugh. Just looking at them side-by-side is dreadful. The latter translation is like reading the newspaper.

But it's not just the beautiful language. Words have power, and we are creatures of body and spirit. When we pray, we are affected not only by our inner selves, but by our physical selves - by how we feel, how we stand, sit, or kneel, what sounds we hear, and by what words we say. So what I say is, say these.

(And it is truly easy to ignore, or even to smile at, the occasional anti-Catholic passage, recognizing them as unfortunate products of a very different age.)

Downloaded this Kindle edition of the BCP for 99 cents which is about what this edition is worth! No table of contents, horrible pagination, errant line breaks, pretty much unusable. Very disappointed.

For students of the Anglican Communion, Episcopal History, or just lovers of fine art--illuminated manuscripts--this book is a treasure. While it is not a complete, authorized version of the Book of Common Prayer, it contains most services and prayers. I first saw one of these books in the book shop at Westminster Abby and was "blown away." For the art work alone, it is a treasure. As a compliment to our Anglican heritage, it is amazing. I have bought several copies (wish it were still in print) for friends, Anglicans and not. This series also includes: the Gospels; Psalms, and a small section of the Old Testament. You will not be disappointed! Peace!!

As Peter Toon so aptly said in his book, "Knowing God through the Liturgy" of the 1928 BCP, "Liturgy, as written documents, reflects the beliefs of the writers even when they utilize ancient sources. Cranmer and his colleagues were vitally committed to the dogma of the early councils of the Church concerning God, the Holy Trinity, and Jesus CHrist as God Incarnate, One person with two natures, which they believed correctly summarized the basic testimony of the Holy Scripture: thus these dogmas are clearly set forth in and through what they produced". p.106 Despite the negative review of some individuals (e.g. Orear), the fact remains, for the majesty of its style and the biblical character of its subtance, the 1928 BCP remains an excellent source of liturgy as relevant to worshippers today as it was in 1928. This is a gem. . .buy it, pray it, encourage others to do so with you and you cannot help but grow closer to God.

I ordered this 1928 prayerbook from Amazon on May 17, 1999 for $47.99. Still using it.

Since then, Oxford has reduced its selection and only produces the book in hardback and bonded leather -- both only in black. Bonded leather (basically a leather covered hardback) Burgundy copies are still available from some online sellers. But the real leather (which is a softcover made of leather) is only available at the high prices seen above.

The reasons one buys a prayerbook like this with a leather sewn binding and the gold page edges are two. First, sacred books deserve high quality production processes to honor their contents. Second, bibles and prayer books are meant to be handled for years on a daily or weekly basis. Leather, sewn bindings, and gold page edges preserve books in heavy use for an extended period of time.

I ordered this BCP based upon the reviews, the description and the reputation of Oxford Press. It's the perfect size for me. I love the three ribbons. The fact that it is Smythe sewn and genuine leather ensures its longevity. But (you knew this was coming!), it's hard to get over the cheap look and feel of the paper. Instead of high quality, thin Bible paper you get instead something closer to the paper you find in mass produced, cheap bibles. By that some of you may know exactly what I'm talking about. It's almost like copier paper. It's too thick. For comparison, I have a 1978 BCP by Oxford Press in a smaller form factor. It's cross on the cover is more attractive in that it is slightly stylized. It's paper is what you would expect. It's leather seems to be higher quality (it's more "nubbly" and even when new it just lays open in your hand in a wonderful manner). 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. Don't expect clean, crisp and easy to read typeset. It is not. Rather, this is photocopied from an original and it shows. The photocopying process is imperfect and the results, while serviceable, are underwhelming. Lastly, I would like to say that it is very hard to find 1928 BCP's, so Oxford Press is to be commended for making it available to us. It has many positive qualities and my nits with it are on the picky side. For that reason I give it 4 stars.
Love it, gave them as gifts.
