Blessed Be God
by Callan and McHugh
Original year of publication: 1960
Reprinted in the year: 2010
Yet another fine reprint (2nd!) from PCP. The Blessed Be God prayer book has proven it's popularity not only by the success of the first reprinting, but simply by the depth and breadth that this prayer book covers. This book is one of the most comprehensive Catholic prayer books I have ever seen. Well, I must confess that shortly after I purchased a copy of the first printing, I have seen very little of it. My wife quickly snatched it from me. She uses it daily. It contains an abundance of daily prayers, devotions, novenas, litanies, etc... It also contains the Order of Mass. Another plus is that the book is filled with wonderful line art images. The text is clear and sharp. PCP has done a wonderful job with this facsimile reprint. One observance I made was the fact that PCP did not simply reprint the first printing with a different cover. The first reprinting appeared to be from 1925 or later. This second reprinting is a newer edition, from 1960. It also now has a table of movable feasts good until 2041 A.D.
Size- 4" by 6 1/2" (more compact than the first reprinting)
Construction- Black bonded leather cover, sewn binding, rounded cover and page corners, heavy end sheets. Thin, white paper.
Additional features- Gold page edges, black ribbon marker, two-color headbands.
Available from Preserving Christian Publications, you can also view a few enlarged page images on their site.
