The new Presbyterian hymnal, Glory to God, has been received with resounding acclaim. Published in September 2013 by the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation (PPC), the book continues to be adopted by a growing number of Presbyterian and ecumenical congregations. Pastors, musicians, and congregation members have delighted in the multiple print and electronic forms.
It is thus with gratitude for faithful service that the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation will soon place all former Presbyterian hymnals out of print. The Hymnal (1933) and The Hymnbook (1955), and The Presbyterian Hymnal (1990) have been available for purchase since their original publication dates. The Worshipbook (1974) was placed out of print in 2010. As demand declined, the 1933 and 1955 hymnals moved to a print-on-demand production. This will end on December 31, 2014, after which they will no longer be available for purchase from PPC. No new printings are planned for the 1990 hymnal; it will continue to be sold while supplies last.
