Tyler3 Stars Out Of 5Okay, but I'd go with the Classic edition.September 3, 2018TylerQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2This edition of the Old Scofield is the same Scofield we know and love, it's just been re-typeset in Times New Roman. The "classic" Old Scofield, as the original has been renamed, is the same typeset that has been in use for 100 years or more.
The problem with the new typesetting is the words are not as bold, and are thus more difficult to read. This is exacerbated by the thin paper. Show through abounds and the thin text makes reading difficult. The thin red letters almost disappear indoors in a modestly lit room.
I do not really have issues reading, I can read a Pitt Minion perfectly well, but to me this edition of the Old Scofield is not as good as the classic version from 1917.
The best thing about this edition is the layout is exactly the same as the classic Old Scofield. Everything is on the same page, even the same portion of the page, as the classic edition. This means you can replace a classic with a standard, or vice versa, without skipping a beat.
g3 Stars Out Of 5ReadabilityAugust 9, 2018gQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1I have the classic edition of this Bible and was hoping this large print would be much easier to read. Turns out the paper is thin and print is dull. The print size would be OK if it was a bolder print and maybe more opaque paper. Disappointed I had to return it.

TrailblazerNortheastAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5For those looking for substance and intelligenceFebruary 6, 2017TrailblazerNortheastAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Don'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.
