Mission Praise began as a book for Christians from different backgrounds to sing from during Billy Graham's "Mission England" campaign in 1984. It combines the best of the old traditional hymns with the most exciting new Christian music. So whether yours is a congregation of oldies willing to enjoy new trends, of youngsters wishing to explore their roots, or you're trying to encourage young and old to worship together and learn from each other, this is the book for you. There are good indexes, of first lines, of themes, and of hymns for times in the Christian year. The accompaniments are suitable for keyboard or guitar. I have bought the latest edition because I had worn out the previous one; I always consult it when deciding which hymns to choose to go with a sermon I have planned, even if the congregation use a different edition or a different hymnbook; if you have paid for a licence to CCLI, you can always print them out or use an overhead projector.

Love the selection of new hymns. My only gripe is that the book is quite large and difficult to keep open when playing.

Format: Hardcover
Although tremendously heavy, so a no-no for a choir member unless the choir stalls have high enough book ledges, this has almost every hymn/worship songe, old or new, you will ever need, with a good (though not always complete) choice of hymn tunes for those which have several tunes. It's the one hymn book you can find almost all you are looking for, without having to refer to a number of other books. It's strongly bound with a good hard cover and good quality paper. Despite its size it opens readily - and stays open without having to bend the spine back or using pegs. You can rely on it to stay on the music ledge without falling on the floor or crashing onto your hands!

This is a wonderful collection of hymns, new and old. As a newly designated church organist, I was very apprehensive about being able to find and practice at home, the hymns that were wanted. They are here! I suppose there must be some that are missing, but I have not found them yet.
The layout is clear and the print is crisp. The hymns are mostly on either one page or on two facing pages. You only need to turn the page for those that take three pages to print.
It has all the latest tunes, more than the earlier editions, which is wonderful. but the size is beginning to worry me.
Points against it? I need to be picky to find any and I can suggest two, but not the solution to the problems they pose. First, the eternal one of keeping the pages open, especially as the book is so thick that the clips on the music stand barely reach.
Second, also to do with the size. The book is very thick and heavy. It would be nice if it appeared in two volumes, especially if it is going to carry on growing, which I hope it will.

Format: Hardcover
We were recently looking for a new hymn book for our church. We already had an earlier version of Mission Praise, but it lacked the most recent songs, necessitating the printing of loose sheets of paper most weeks. This new edition, containing 1250 items, won the contest because the sheer size of the collection meant it contained nearly all the songs and hymns we were currently using. However, if we'd been starting from scratch, we might have chosen differently. The new book, in its music edition, is very unwieldy, and fits barely any book rests. The indexing has gone from weak to weaker, and in spite of its size, Mission Praise has a very poor selection of seasonal hymns. Some of the textual revisions are clumsy, and others are plain wrong. I would suggest that C of E churches might seriously consider Anglican Hymns Old and New (858 items) as an alternative. But if size is everything, go for Mission Praise.

This book is too big (thick) for a keyboard music rest. It would be better taller and slimmer or in two volumes.

Huge number of hymns, both old & new. Not absolutely comprehensive, so will need to be supplemented by others. Paper slightly thin and volume is too thick to balance on music stand of piano, but still a good buy.

The new 25th anniversary edition must surely have reached the limits, and the size is becoming unmanagable. Whilst it is good to have a blend of old and new hymns, the expanded editions of this hymnbook inevitably concentrate on the newer hymns and songs. Surely the next step must be to winnow out some of the material that is less used and poorer quality. I also wonder whether churches can really afford to keep updating their hymnbooks. Has this one lost its way?
