The description is accurate, this is a beautiful book, well constructed and intended for a lifetime of service. It slides easily into my suit jacket pocket. It is a certified copy of the Standard Book as revised and adopted in 1979 and amended to include the Revised Common Lectionary of 2006. While the earlier versions of 1892 as presented to my Grandfather and the 1928 version presented to me include the Collects, Epistles, and Gospels for each Sunday and Holy Day of the Year, this issue includes both the traditional and contemporary versions of the Collects and, in the Lectionary, the references to the appropriate lessons and psalms for the specific days as found in the Holy Bible. So, you may want to order a companion Holy Bible of either the traditional King James Version, the contemporary New Revised Standard Version, or my favorite, the English Standard Version in between. I took advantage of Gift Cards to make this new BCP an extra special present.
