" I have found this to be one of the most personal bookstores I have worked with online and over the phone. They also send a personal message with each shipment. I asked them to inscribe a book for me that I was sending to my daughter, and they did this as well. They tell us to wait until some things are on sale before we purchase. This is one of the last personal bookstores that seem to really care about their customers."
Book of Common Prayer/Hymnal 1982 Combination, Black
Binding: Genuine Leather
This volume and its companion in red cover are a very popular book, both for one's own personal use, and as a gift. For those who sing in the Episcopal Church regularly, combining the prayer book with the Episcopal Hymnal makes a handy gift, for yourself or someone you care about.
It combines The Book of Common Prayer 1979 and The Hymnal 1982 in one elegant volume bound in genunine leather. It is printed on special lightweight paper and is chancel size (5-7/8 x 8-1/4). It includes gold page edges, six ribbon markers, and comes in its own gift box.
This volume now includes the Revised Common Lectionary replacing the former Sunday Eucharistic Lectionary. (The Daily Office Lectionary has not changed and it remains as it has been in this book.)
The Episcopal Church uses the prayer book during worship, in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, as well as during the Daily Offices of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline. Episcopalians also value The Book of Common Prayer (prayer book) for daily private devotions and prayers.

I love my new prayer book with Hymnal combined. Since I am a choir member at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Jackson TN, it has been a useful source of convenience when having hymns and Prayers of the People on Sundays. The name embossing on the front was beautifully scripted and I love the different colored ribbon markers that I can use to know which hymn we will be singing throughout the service.
Your personal touch with delivery was thoughtful and sincere. I received it in ample time and I also am using the cross with my robe.
Thank you for giving me a place to find exactly what I needed to make my spiritual life a special touch.

Having been gifted with a "hand me down" BOC/Hymnal years ago, I could not think of any better gift for a dear friend who is moving away. My friend only sang with our choir for a year but in that year, he wormed his way into my heart. He and his family are moving several states away and I wanted to not only give him something that would remind him of his time with us but also might encourage him to keep singing in his new home. The gift is truly beautiful and I could not have asked for better. Thank you for your assistance.

We gifted this combination Prayer and Hymnal book to our grandson as a Confirmation gift to cherish.
What a convenience having both Prayer and Hymnal in one. No more juggling books!
His first reaction was "my whole name is on the book too."
I have purchased from you in the past and will be ordering more of these books in the near future. Thanks and God Bless

This is perfect for me! As a new Episcopalian, I wanted a BCP with Hymnal and this filled the bill! The binding is beautiful, the print crisp and easy to read. I hope to use this book for the rest of my life!

I bought this to give as a christening present. It is just beautiful, and an added bonus is that the customer service was outstanding. I ordered late, and even though asked for a name to be etched on the cover, I received my order even earlier than requested.
I love shopping at this site.
