Why use this hymnal in the pulpit rather than the standard hardcover edition? The reason is simple: Convenience. This leather-bound flexible cover edition is much easier for the pastor to handle in the pulpit with one hand while using the other hand to re-arrange papers, prepare books, or complete a multitude of tasks before the singing of the hymn comes to an end. There are also three different-colored page marker ribbons that will help make finding a hymn or psalm much quicker. The pages are gilt-edged. This is a hymnal that invites us into a new century. The best hymns of the past are combined with exciting new hymnody from some of the finest contemporary poets and composers, reflecting the pluralistic church in which we worship today. The New Century Hymnal has been created with a high level of musical and theological scholarship -- including remarkable new translations of original texts. Its texts honor tradition while at the same time using inclusive language that will welcome and affirm all as members of Christ's church. The hymnal contains: 1) a full 934 pages with more than 600 hymns, 2) many new translations to bring freshness and clarity to older texts, 3) more than 100 psalms, fully set to music, 4) arrangements and harmonizations carefully selected for congregational singing, and 5) orders for worship, with services for morning and evening prayer.
