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.
