    I have been lurking on these forums to see if anyone else has found or knows of the newly printed, "The Anglican Office Book"? It has as its editor Lance Davis. It is now printed and within the United States, sent from its publisher overseas, to the USA. It was sent to the US distributor and all pre-orders are awaiting its receipt. I am one of those that pre-ordered. Oh, the distributor is Saint Andrew's Store.

    Has anyone on these forums ordered one?

    The home-base for this new book, "The Anglican Office Book" is on Facebook. It is a public group page.

    I haven't ordered one but I remember seeing the hullabaloo when it was announced. It's looking like it's going to be too Anglo-Catholic for some (or a lot of?) people, but at least it looks like it's more Anglican than Roman. If I was serving a 1928-BCP parish I would consider buying it.

    I don't know whom this is for. It seems to be for those people who like to dress up and LARP as medieval anglicans.

    I understand it to be a culmination or joining of various works into one for simplicity sake. This, per Lance Davis, the editor.

    I think most of the people I know who are anticipating delivery of this book have a fondness for the Missal and view it as a supplement to that book. Or they like to dabble in the monastic hours. We do have a few actual monastics among our clergy but many more people who like to experiment with monastic practices.

    I put this work in the same category as the Missal, A Manual for Priests, or the Saint Augustine's Prayer Book. That is to say, supplementary material primarily oriented to Anglo-Catholics.
