New printing a great improvement!

While we await the LSB: Liturgy Desk Edition (which I assume is going to have the liturgy and propers altogether in a handheld format with additional rubrics), it should be noted that the new printings of the LSB Altar Book are far superior to the older printing, being between 1/4 and 1/3 less thick, and opening up flat, staying flat, and being much easier to turn pages that the previous edition. The binding does not have to break anymore and ruin the spine in order to be functional, and you can do turns between the propers and the ordinary with one hand no problem (even if you use the historic lectionary at the back, just keep the ribbon to the side and you're good to go). Although intended to be sitting on the altar on a missal stand, this can actually be held with one hand for a limited amount of time if needed (although the double underhand grip would still be best). Still normal hardback (no leather over boards like other deluxe altar books), and the page edges are still square as well, but the gilding is very nice, and there are four long ribbon markers (pro tip: use a flame to sing eht ends so they don't fray). This is by far the best altar book, and best printing of an altar book CPH has ever done though. At least, to my knowledge... but I do try and collect them and often look at other printings in the library, etc. If your current altar book needs replacing, or you don't have one to begin with, definitely get and utilize this resource. It is a treasure for the historic liturgy, and I pray that many churches maintain its use in a world that needs the Divine Service to be set apart from the rest of the world, and transcend all cultures, times, and fads by always directing everything towards Gottesdienst, towards God's service to us, where we simply reply back with the sacrifice of prayer, praise, and thanksgiving (using the very Words he has given to us; the Words of the sacred Scriptures).

Too Big

This is too big and thick and heavy to be used as a hand held altar book. Just the five services would be fantastic!!
