I have various study bibles (my fave being Thomas Nelson!), so for my next round of studying I thought I'd try this one since my girlfriend told me Scofield was one of the best. I'm glad I got it too! I'm just in Genesis and have already found unique information not in my other bibles. Plus, I like the different ways the notes/charts are layed out on the pages. Love the fact it's zippered too--only thing is--when the zipper gets to the bottom, on mine anyway, you have to make sure you stick it further into the gap of the binder in order to open the book all the way (flat) without harming it..but I got the hang of it. Would recommend if you yet ANOTHER study bible (and what's one more!)!
Three of us were purchasing a Bible as a birthday gift for a dear friend. He requested that we purchase the Scofield III. He had been greatly impressed with one which he had seen, for its value as a study Bible. Though I would have probably purchased the NASV edition for him, he specifically wanted the KJV. He cannot get over thanking us for giving him the Scofield III! I am disappointed that it is no longer available without the thumb tabs. (I really do not think that Bible students need the tabs. Beside this, they become frayed and unsightly after a little while.) However, this was the only availability. He said that he could live with that, before I ordered it. I always preferred the New Scofield of 1967, and still do. However, I never liked the way the Bible text was changed for the New Scofield. With the Scofield III, we can now have the best of the notes with the best of the translations, the NASV. This is a good thing!
