The 1928 version of the Book of Common Prayer is a must for the Traditional Anglican (or Anglo Catholic).

It's wonderful that the 1928 Book of Common Prayer is back in print and available - hopefully to stay.

I spent a while on an Amazon 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 Amazon offerings, this particularly valuable book was relatively difficult to obtain. Thus, I was very pleased on a visit to Amazon for another purchase to see this edition with the notation IN STOCK (when I wrote this review in 2007, the message said "one left - more on the way" but now [2010] Amazon appears to be keeping the book regularly available, praise God).

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.

This beautifully crafted Book of Common Prayer testifies to its durability as a source of classical Anglican/Episcopal theology and worship and is yet another fine example of Oxford University Press'craftsmanship. This edition sustains OUP's tradition of excellence both in binding and quality printing..in short, this is a book one just likes to hold. The elegance of the Elizabethan prayers and other contents make this prayerbook a classic for all Christians seeking the beauty of Elizabethan English and its poetic cadences and for those who seek also a deeper appreciation of the richness of Anglican spirituality.
This is the kind of volume you and yours can appreciate generation to generation...it is a lasting heirloom, literally and metaphorically... a treasure.

I'm absolutely thrilled to discover this book in print once again! This is the cherished Book of Common Prayer I was raised with as an Episcopalian, and when the Episcopal Church abandoned this version for its contemporary revision, it cast aside one of the most beautiful works of literature ever printed. I am able once again, as an Anglican in America, to enjoy the 1928 BCP in my worship, which is made even more special with this wonderfully crafted leather version. I can only describe this book as remarkable. The gilded pages are crisp and thin as an onion skin, yet lay open willingly upon the soft leather cover, which nestles on the hand. The book marks are very convenient. Though this book is of paramount significance to all Anglicans and traditional Episcopalians, I cannot imagine any Christian not being comforted and inspired by this magnificent work, which is companion to the King James version of the Bible. Among the highlights of the 1928 BCP the reader will appreciate, in addition to Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Holy Communion, are the Collects, Epistles and Gospels used throughout the Christian calendar year, Holy Baptism, Matrimony, Confirmation, Catechism, The Psalter or Psalms of David, and forms of prayer for families for all occasions. This is a complete work that every Christian should explore.

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 traditional Anglo-Catholic priest who, like many other conservative Anglicans, prefer the older BCPs to the current version of 1979 for style and theological reasons. I have a hardcover copy and decided that I would like a newer, flexible, leather copy. I saw the product description which includes the phrase "Burgundy Bonded Leather." I considered this description to be equivalent to any other product I would buy with 'bonded leather' (e.g., Bibles). I received the BCP only to find that "Burgundy Bonded Leather" means a bonded leather surface glued to a hardcover stock. I searched in vain for any other leather edition of the 1928 BCP (including a search of the Oxford University Press website); no one makes it with a flexible leather cover. Oxford did at one time -- and many sites make a link to that particular product -- but all supplies have been exhausted. The closest is a printer who binds a 1928 BCP with a KJV Bible and a diocese within an Anglican communion that prints their own version with a leather cover but which also includes an "Authorized for use by..." title page with the name of that communion. Overall, the BCP is beautifully crafted. I only regret that the product description doesn't fully clarify what kind of cover is meant by "bonded leather."
