Comment: My copy does not have the dust jacket as shown, but does have thumb tabs for the individual books of the Bible and has gilt on the page edges, flaw is that owner's name is embossed on cover and there are a few dabs of paint on the edges. Appears brand new (and, sadly, unread) inside!

The only thing missing is a yearly reading plan.

While each of these Study Bibles have their individual strengths and weaknesses, all are indeed helpful in understanding the everlasting messages given to us from God.

I like the Scofield bibles because they have wonderful references and easy to read.

The Old Scofield Study Bible is an excellant value. First the construction: The Berkshire leather cover is durable, pleasant to the touch, and very attractive. At 1616 pages long, it's not so big that it's cumbersome to carry around. The page layout, and print are attractive and easy to read. The paper quality is better than average, though I prefer the paper in the Cambridge and Thompson Bibles.

This Scofield is published by Oxford. They use a KJV text with the old time spellings: saviour, privily, and etc. If you compare the Oxford Scofield KJV with the Cambridge KJV Bibles you will find that while the Cambridge updates the spelling in a few places, in the Oxford Scofield it is updated in only a very few places. This would be very important to someone who wants to be sure he has a "genuine King James Bible." The only places that I found where the spelling was changed my Scofield was the use of "inquire" in place of "enquire" in Genesis 24:57, and the use of the lower case "s" in place of the upper case "S" in Matthew 4:1.

The only downside to this edition is that Scofield can go off on a tangent with some of his notes, although I did find them helpful more often than not.

The other strong point of the Old Scofield KJV is that the concordance is among the best that I've seen in a medium priced study Bible. I've got about six daily use Bibles including some by Cambridge and Thompson Chain, (see my other reviews) yet this is one of my favorites. Amazingly enough, the Scofield was the most inexpensive. All in all, the Old Scofield Study Bible is worth every penny, and deserves your consideration if you are shopping for a nice KJV study Bible.

I own and use the NIV, NASB, NKJV, RSV and NRSV study Bibles and three Life Amplification Bibles. While each of these Study Bibles have their individual strengths and weaknesses, all are indeed helpful in understanding the everlasting messages given to us from God. It is not my intention to critique each version in detail. My purpose for this review is to, hopefully, add some information a first time Study Bible buyer might find useful.
Of the Study and Life Amplification Bibles I own, Dr. Scofield's is my personal favorite for several reasons. I will briefly describe those reasons.
A] Some Study Bibles somewhat overwhelm the reader with information while others are far too abbreviated. Since the foregoing statement is a personal opinion, I will not name the too much and too little Study Bibles. I do not want to add more confusion to a selection so important to one's spiritual growth. Dr. Scofield's essays, commentaries and explanations are an excellent middle ground to the above listed pros and cons.
B] All study expositions are thoughtfully placed on the same page - bottom - of the passages they refer to. As way of example, Dr. Scofield lists the Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew words that can have more than one translation and tells the reader the possible meanings of the translations. However, Dr. Scofield does not restrict his commentary to semantics. He also explains difficult passages and gives details about customs and life in Biblical times. Other Study Bibles do this also but Dr. Scofield's approach is far more "down to earth" and in clear language.
C] The center column cross-references are exceptional. The first to last listing of a particular word or idea is cross-referenced so the reader can easily go back or forward to see each reference.

If your looking for a good quality Bible with solid and reliable study notes this is the Bible for you. I would avoid the "New" Scofield for reasons below:
The first and most weighty reason why the New Scofield Bible is not a Scofield Bible at all is shamefully simple. Dr. C.I. Scofield did not edit it. Dr. Scofield died in 1921!
A book which claims on its title page that a dead man (Dr. Scofield) is one of its editors.
The text of the New Scofield Bible is NOT a King James Bible and it is NOT a Scofield Bible.

Great binding, soft (real not pressed) leather and the notes are helpful and handy. Someone else suggested The Companion Bible as a better study Bible. I have to disagree. Scofields notes are only to help guide you, the Companion Bible will bogg you down (and build your arms) with far too many notes to be helpful to the average reader. I have the same feelings for the Ryrie Study Bible. Scofield is the way to go and Oxford Press offers a high quality Bible at a good price. (note: avoid the so-called "New" Scofield, buy the "Old" Scofield Study Bible)

A friend at my Church turned me on to the Old Scofield Study Bible. I have had it for a couple months now, and I absolutely love it! It really unlocks the Scriptures, and transforms mediocre bible study habits into Spirit-filled absorption of the Word of Truth! It has even turned me back to using the KJV (I was reading the NIV before...).

One thing that I don't buy in the notes is the support of the events that allegedly occured between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 (the Gap Theory). The Scriptures used to support this position are questionable for this application. Of course, no notes added to a study Bible are ever going to be infallible. Only Scripture can make that claim. Overall, this is the best study Bible available for serious study of God's Word. Just make sure that you get the OLD Scofield Study Bible (Not the New politically correct one).
