Don't miss this: The Scofield KJV Original Bible (which this is) is a treasure of information but it takes study and work to mine the depths of its contents. I like modern study Bibles as much as the next person but this Bible has staying power as it is 100 years old this year and continues to inform and best of all---remain accurate in its statements. Scofield is known for his teachings on prophecy, dispensations of time, the Jews, Gentiles and the Church, the history of the Christian Church etc. While I might see things differently in some areas Scofield is for the student who wants to have a foundation. This is my go-to Bible after reading some of the newer ones (as good as they may be) because I know it can be relied upon.
The Old Scofield KJV bible is my favorite bar none. The chapter titles and subtitles and headings are very much on the mark. The notes are to the point and are not organized as a verse by verse interpretation but as a Bible wide doctrinal interpretation. It teaches the dispensations of time but it is not hyperdispensationalist as it is accused of being. The exegesis is exceptionally good but keep in mind that the Teacher is the Holy Spirit and not the editorial house scholars. The quality of the binding is excellent as well, the print size is adecuate and the external appearance is beautiful. I bought the thumb indexed one even though I have a system for marking the main books that allows me to fly through the Scriptures. This is a good buy for the price and I ordered it with free shipping so that it arrived at my door intact and without a hassle, as has been custumary of Christianbook.
