I love the Book of Common Prayer and use it daily. This one is the right size for me, but I was disappointed in the "imitation leather" cover, which is thin and stiff. As long as it wears well, it will be all right, but it isn't as nice to the touch as I was hoping.
As a pastor, prayer is critical to my life as well as to my ministry. It is as crucial as gasoline is to a race car driver. I have found this little prayer book to be an invaluable tool in giving structure to my prayer life. Whether you are a liturgical or non-liturgical Christian, you will benefit from the structured prayers and especially the Bible study program given in this little book. Two thumbs way up from me for this Book of Common Prayer.
Imitation leather cover is more like textured card

I have purchased many of these types of books for children who have received communion or have been confirmed. This product seemed much more cheaply made than others. There was not book mark that has been in all other books of common prayer I purchased. The cover is not very sturdy. I feel I will be replacing this book soon with a better made one. I will probably not buy on line again so that I can see the product before purchase.
