Book of Common Prayer 1979
Chapel size, red, clothbound over boards
This book is smaller than the one usually found in the pews across the country in Episcopal churches. It is convenient for use in chapels and other places where the smaller size is an advantage. The publisher makes this one of reliable durability, a good choice for churches. It measures about 4.5 inches wide by 6.25 inches tall and 1.5 inches thick.
For purchasing more than a few of these the shipping charges will be lower if you phone or E-mail us with your order.
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.

Average Customer Review
I recently purchased the chapel size BCP and had it imprinted with my name. The imprinting turned out more beautiful than I'd imagined, and it was delivered so timely, that I'd received in time for Holy Saturday and the Easter celebration! Wonderful customer service, I will certainly shop here again and again!

I ordered the BCP on a Friday night and recieved it by the following Thursday with the printing and everything! It was a baptism gift for my nephew and my sister loved it! His name was so well embossed on the cover that I couldn't stop looking at it. This was a great choice and I'm so glad I decided to go with the BCP.

I was delighted with the turn-around time for the BCP 1979. I like the size, including font size. The book even came with a personal message.

Everything is fine, except I wish that I had ordered the larger size book. In ordering online, it is easy to click the wrong size or whatever. I'm sure I'll become accustomed to this Book of Common Prayer and love it as well as my first Book of Common Prayer - a gift to
me from my first Priest.
