This is a great Bible. The charts and notes are laid out much nicer than the original Scofield, which I really like. I like the title headings, particularly in the gospels, as it also notes the parallel passages, so you can quickly look those up and compare the different gospel writers. Has a good deal of cross-references, but I have noticed sometimes when there is a quote from the OT, it is not noted in a cross reference. This is why I also own the Westminster Reference Bible - which has TONS of cross references. But this Bible has features that the Westminster doesn't have, so I use both of them. Overall, I'm very happy with this Bible and would recommend it if someone was looking for a KJV.
I came out of a liturgical church and was trying to understand dispensationalism and the Bible in general. The Old Scofield was just too confusing for me but Scofield 3, with it's added features and explanations, is a *great* help!!! Love this Bible!!!
This was my first bible...I was saved in my 30's...and I was able to understand the Word of God so much easier thru this bible which has references to check and the Word gave me so much information...I thank the Lord for it every day...I have so much writing in it..thru studies...Thank you Dr. Scofield
I was very surprised at the quality, it is really good, especially at this price. The black is shiny and durable on the outside. The pages are smooth and not stuck together like some new Bibles you get. The gold edges with the thumb indexes are great no defects. The inside cover looks well done with black and a beautiful gold trim. The pages have slight see through effect, but the paper is better quality.
The Bible notes on the bottom of some pages are good sized, and some pages have only one reference note about a single verse for a whole page. If you are looking for a Bible with leaning more to minimal comments by Scofield then this is for you. If you are looking for a lot of comments to explain each verse then you may be disappointed. I would highly recommend this KJV Bible if you do not have one just for the quality and order a separate commentary for deeper study.
