The Concordia edition of the Book of Concord is now available, and in stock, and shipping….in leather, burgundy leather. Mmmmm…leather.

Bonded leather: Item number 531157; Price: $69.99.
Genuine leather: Item number 531158; Price: $99.99.

Or place your order via telephone at: 800-325-3040

NOTE: The regular hardback edition remains available at a special introductory price of $20, but this special price is good until until July 31. After July 31, the price goes up to $29.99 and it won’t be available for $20 again. So…word to the wise, and all that.

[Note: the photos of the two leather editions on the web site are of only the bonded. A photo of the genuine leather edition is coming].

The 20% professional/rostered church worker discount applies to these items. Please let me also note that only rostered, professional church workers may receive this discount. In other words, if you are buying a book for a church worker, you don’t get the 20% discount, they have to buy it directly from us themselves. Just so you know.

The bonded leather is a flexible cover, with thumb indexes to all the major portions of the book and gilded page edges, with a ribbon marker. The genuine leather edition is rather unique these days. It is a hardback leather volume, in a slipcase. It has silk endsheets, a ribbon marker and gilded page edges, with thumb index. Both books come in a nice outer box making it a nice gift presentation.

Be the first on your block to have a leather edition of the Book of Concord and impress your friends and family with your impeccably good taste, or something like that. To my knowledge, this is the first time the Book of Concord has been available in a leather edition since Concordia Publishing House reprinted a German edition of the BOC in 1890. I do not believe the Triglotta was printed with a leather cover, but a leather-like material. Anyone know?

    Pastor McCain, any word on the availability of an ESV version of Concordia Study Bible?
    McCain: God willing, Fall of 2009.

    I have the LSB Gift Edition and also the Pastoral Companion. The bonded leather is great. Is there a possibility of publishing those and the Concordia with the TruTone covers used on some ESV editions. Heavy usage is hard on leather, especially when it’s used on a cemetery in a snow storm. I use leather conditioner on books when I see they are in need of care. TruTone would be a solution for rugged use and have the advantages of leather. Maybe a leather edition on my shelf and a TruTone edition for riding shotgun in my car. Just wondering. The great embossing would look great in TruTone also.
