    The VP of P&R just sent me the following e-mail:

    "We have been revamping our Gold Medallion award-winning book, The Holy Trinity by Robert Letham, in light of recent Trinitarian issues being high in the news list.

    https://www.prpbooks.com/book/holy-trinity-the

    What we need help on is what format the revised book should be. The current edition is a 6 x 9 p/b of 568 pages costing $24.99

    Options for new edition - which is still 6 x 9 but has 704 pages

    1. Paperback - $29.99

    2. Casebound hardback - $34.99

    3. Hardback with dust jacket - $39.99

    If you have strong opinions pointing to another option, please voice it.


    Thanks"

    I told him I would share on here to get feedback. Please cast your vote. Thanks for your help.

    At that size I would ditch a pb for one of the hb options; stand up to rigorous use etc.

    Most definitely hardback with dust jacket.

    Believe it or not, the current paperback is actually very nice, as far as paperbacks go. The cover has kind of a waxy feel, and seems more sturdy than most paperbacks.

    I voted casebound hardback--simply because not everything has to have a premium binding. My Bavinck volumes are casebound.

    True, a quality PB. I could wish all my books were HB though!

    I agree the current paperback is well done. My preference is still towards a harcover for this particular volume.

    Following the second edition, I am sure you will be able to get the first edition paperback for that on the used market.
