How can one review a masterpiece, born 1662 and still going strong? This enlarged print edition makes it more accessible than those with tiny print often seen in churches.

A valuable desktop companion for daily use and still of a pocketable size to carry with you.

Format: Leather Bound
This Cambridge enlarged edition is the clearest and cleanest version of the BCP ever printed. Bearing in mind that churches are often dimly lit and have an ageing population, the larger font size provides an ease of reading missing from the small traditionally sized BCPs, but against that the edition is larger to hold and in some churches to fit on the pew shelf. The printed page format of this classy leather bound edition is identical to the cheaper enlarged edition separately listed and selling for £9-£13. However -in addition to its beautiful cover,rounded corners, gilt edging and slip case, it has a very practical ribbon page marker.Makes a great present.

Format: Leather Bound
This is the ultimate Prayer Book for those who enjoy the 1662 version. The leather is nice, and gets softer with use. The gold edges are consistent and not blotchy. My only gripe is that excess hard glue has seeped onto the inside areas of some pages. But I would buy it again even with that small flaw, especially since there is nothing better on the market.

This isn't a review of the BCP itself, just the edition. I'm very pleased with it - comfortable size (for use at home, maybe not to carry about in a pocket) and very good quality printing, paper and binding as you'd expect from the publisher. It's a handsome, though unshowy volume, nice colour, very nice feel.
Altogether excellent and I'd recommend it.

The book was very well received as a Christmas present and provides a good reference when eg listening to evensong on the radio.It is of a manageable size for an elderly,frail person but the print is still too small for those with failing or very poor sight.

This review is for the BCP706 brown goatskin leather edition. Its a fabulous quality edition. The leather is soft and supple, the binding is handstiched and the paper has art-gilt edges. This is the traditional service book of the Church of England, often over shadowed by the new Common Worship service book introduced around 2000. However the BCP is still officially sanctioned as a set of rites for the COE and has been since 1662. Generally favoured by high Church and used for traditional worship services. I had the pleasure of visiting York Minister Catherdral over Easter earlier this year and was able to follow the morning service using my BCP which was a pleasant surprise.

Very pleased with this copy of the Book of Common Prayer. My eyesight isn't what it was, so having a large print copy makes life so much easier. It was delivered well before time and well packaged, arriving in pristine condition. Thank you.

Format: Imitation Leather
This Book of Common Prayer (1662) is the 'primary' BCP, used by the Church of England proper, the original branch of the Anglicans. There have been many books that have had the title 'Book of Common Prayer' since the first one appeared in 1549; it has been used continuously in one edition or another in the Anglican tradition since 1559; the 'main' edition remains this 1662 edition. Churches in other nations (Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United States, Canada) have done revised Books of Common Prayer, but they always use this as the touchstone.
A bishop in the Episcopal church once said to me, 'We don't have a theology that we have to believe -- what we have is the prayerbook.' Please forgive the absence of context for this phrase -- while he would say that this statement in isolation is an exaggeration, and I would agree, nonetheless his statement serves to highlight both the importance of and the strength of the Book of Common Prayer.
To be an Anglican, one does not have to subscribe to any particular systematic theological framework. One does not have to practice a particular brand of liturgical style. One does not have to have an approved politico-theological viewpoint. One can be a conservative, liberal or moderate; one can be high church, low church, or broad; one can be charismatic, evangelical, or mainline traditional -- one can be any number of things in a rich diversity of choices, and the Book of Common Prayer can still be the book upon which spirituality and worship is centred.
The Book of Common Prayer is not, in fact, a book that changed my life. It is a book that changes my life. Even though it is not the primary book of my own church, it continues to provide for spiritual insight and development; it continues to guide my worship and my theology.
