I returned this Bible because the paper is not suitable for this application, it is too translucent, and the print is not black but light grey. Trying to read the text is like trying to read through a rain cloud...very difficult. Also, I purchased the genuine leather cover for the look and feel of genuine leather. This cover looks and feels like genuine plastic. This product was made in S. Korea, not the USA, as the last Scofield I purchased from Christian Book. ChristianBook refunded all but to and from shipping, so I only lost $18. This is a good store and I will continue to shop here. It's a shame they got stuck with this inferior product from the Scofield people.
As my summary states, I believe this to be one of the best reference Bibles a Christian can own. I have owned this Scofield bible for a few years now and it has held up pretty well. The leather is of good quality and paper feels great, thin but not flimsy. But the best part is the content, it is the preserved text, the Authorized Version King James Bible, the pure words of God. That, along with Scofield's references makes for an excellent product. I have given a couple away to new born-again believers. This is great for babes in Christ, or the Bible teachers and preachers. The only other reference Bible I'd pick over the Scofield would be the Ruckman Reference Bible, it's more expensive than the Scofield but worth every penny.
I had one of these before which the size, print everything was right but had a major spill on it that ruined it. Not knowing there was a different between this the standard version and the classic version I ordered the classic and these 61 year old eyes had a hard time reading it. It's print was smaller. While searching the net I found the difference and ordered this standard size and love it. I just wish the leather could have been softer like my old one
