Layout of notes and Word are great!
August 12, 2011
Recently, I came back to the "old" King James Version and looking at the Scofield Study Bible I really liked the lay out of this particular one. Many of the Scofield Study Bibles have the notes in the middle of the page which made it very crowded looking. I like the space on the sides to write my own notes and the font of both notes and Word are easy to read. There are many added features like maps and a concordance + others as written in the description of the product.
I ordered this book thinking that it has an extensive notes and/or comments on some controversial passages but to may dismay it does not. Nevertheless, I give it a thumbs up for the quality of the product as a whole (for this I can recommend it to my fried) and a fairly notes in some respects. I am just looking for more notes and comments from what many have said is a commendable and authoritative study bible. Also I suggest that other bible study topics be incorporated in this edition, like some doctrines on salvation, diety, Christology, Second Coming, church.
It is a nice Bible but more for to use at church to follow the speaker then they are up. The charts are nice but this Bible is not as extensive as I thought it would be. I will give it to my teen daughter.
Wow, just wow. The depth of the notes and commentary here is astonishing. Every time the pastor has us turn to the week's passage there is a boxed article that makes it seem as though I have the sermon outline in front of me. I think I learned more just by reading the introduction to each book and section than I did in two years of Bible class in college.
The Word of God is always the most reliable resource! The commentaries that accompany the Word of God are the things that begin to produce conflict in the Purity of the Word. The commentary placed on Hebrews 6 in this particular version of Scofield speaks about a believer losing their Salvation. That concept does not line up with the teaching of the rest of this particular Epistle. Which causes it to kick against the manor in which the Bible has been Canonized (Doctrinal Reliability). The scriptures are true and it takes scripture to interpret scripture. Be cautious with the commentary 1 John 4:1.
