5 Stars Out Of 5
Good quality study Bible
May 13, 2011
I have used Scofield study Bibles for years; usually the 1967 New Scofield edition and the Scofield III, NKJV. However, I wanted to see the original Scofield in the KJV. What surprised me most was the difference in the commentary footnotes. The new editions, utilizing other editors, have significantly changed Dr. Scofield's own notes in the study Bible the bears his name. For example, Dr. Scofield defends the Gap Theory very clearly in the creation account in Genesis. The newer editions have edited and deleted parts of that. It's a whole new reading experience reading the original Scofield.
I had hoped that Scofield would include more updating translations for archaic words in the KJV. That was the strength of the 1967 edition, now out of print.
As usual, Oxford publishes excellent quality Bibles. I might say, however, that the paper seems to be a little thinner in that you can see print behind each page. But the binding and quality of leather remains up to Oxford's fine standards.
