There are a few bonuses. The paper is onionskin, and the book is still thick; however the printing is a very good size. No need for those with old eyes to bring a magnifying glass. The book has six sewn-in bookmark ribbons, which should be enough for almost all services. Our old Lutheran worship book had four, and that was often not enough. Best of all, the pagination for the Book of Common Prayer is identical to the pagination found in the latest edition of the separate volume. So, when page numbers are announced or read in the bulletin, they will match the page number in this volume.
This is exactly that; this is 1982 Hymnal and the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. The Book of Common Prayer and Hymnal page numbers are consistent with the normal books in the pews.
There are six ribbon markers in appropriate liturgical colors. The ribbons are a perfect length so that they stick out of the bottom of the book about an inch and a half. This is perfect for ease of grabbing. The pages are that super skinny onion skin. They are able to be turned easily during the service. The book is black genuine leather. It is about 2.2 inches thick, so even as a small female, I am able to hold the book in one hand throughout the service. The book is 2.2 x 6.9 x 9.3 inches, which means that the print is slightly larger than normal.
One con is that if I am marking out the whole service, two more ribbons would be a real benefit. I bought an additional ribbon bookmark inserts from Cokesbury. With that, this book is perfect for any service in your regular Episcopal Church.
Overall, it is exactly what I wanted!
This book will last you many years, most likely a lifetime. The pages are thin, but if they were thicker you wouldn't be able to get so much into one book! I love this book and carry it with me to every worship service. If you plan to mark in this book, I would look into markers or pens that do not "bleed" onto other pages as the page thickness is thin.
I would highly recommend this Prayer Book and Hymnal to anyone looking to simplify their worship experience. I have found no difference in this book and the hymnals and BCP my Church uses. It really was a great investment that I think will last a lifetime. I have attached photos for you to see what the inside looks like in person. I hope you find my review helpful! If so, please give me a thumbs up! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I am always willing to help my Amazon community.
Amazon has by far the best price anywhere for the book.
This would be an excellent gift for confirmations, baptisms (of older children or adults) choir members, or just about any Episcopalian.
Like others, I wish it had more ribbons to mark hymns, service music as well as the actual service in use that day. Over time the pages seem to mark themselves. Far better than juggling 2 books.
The only negative is that there are only six ribbons. I wish they were an inch longer, and I wish that there were a couple more of them.
