Quality Bible That's Easy To Read Mar 22, 2007
I have been very pleased with my copy of this Scofield Study Bible. My first experience with the Scofield cross-reference system was nearly 9 years ago when I was given the KJV version. I have been pleased with its comprehensiveness and with the layout and organization of the Book.
The extras in this particular version are wonderful. There are maps and various topical discussions all through it. These same maps are also cross-referenced, making it easy to find more content related to the Scripture you're reading. Yes, there are some assertions that are made by Scofield that I don't agree with, but that doesn't make his opinions any less informative.
I'm also very pleased with this translation. I was introduced to it through a Bible software program and instantly fell in love with it. So many times I would look at notes altering words in my King James Bible and that was how the English Standard Version was already translated. I also found it very interesting that there are some scriptures that are denoted as not being found in the earliest manuscripts, and that their status is questionable. But, they are never totally omitted. They are just bracketed and noted as having some discrepancies, allowing the reader to decide on their own.
All in all, this is a quality Bible that I expect to last me through many years of Bible study. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who's interested in an easy to read and understand Bible that doesn't leave out the meat of the matter

You can't go wrong with this Bible. Jan 9, 2007
This bible is very attractive and very high quality. It is standard size, very understandable and has a lot of supplemental material throughout the book. I am very happy with mine and simply have nothing bad to say about it!
Great Translation, Great Study Bible Aug 26, 2006
This is a great translation and study system for a born again, Fundamentalist Christian who believes the 66 books of the Protestant Bible are the literal, inspired word of God and true in every respect, including the Genesis creation account. It's great at explaining some difficult biblical concepts.
If you are a Roman Catholic who does not believe any version of the bible should be taken literally or seriously (the RCC "added" books to their bible hundreds of years after the early Church fathers agreed upon what books should be included in the real Bible, and moreover says that the historical traditions of the Roman Catholic clergy take priority over the Bible in any event), then for sure you won't like this study system, as one of the reviewers below illustrates.
Also, if you are part of some "fringe" group that, despite all that's happend to the Jews and the nation of Israel in the last 60 years, still believes the Christian Church has somehow supplanted the Jews in Bible prophecy and that the Jews are no longer God's chosen people (i.e., you believe God is some tricky [...] who's promises can't be counted on), then you won't like this translation either.
If you are a man or women who is ready to take God at his Word, then this book is a great place to start. If you prefer the traditions of men, you best look elsewhere.
Within its context, Scofield ESV is an excellent study Bible Jun 27, 2006
The problem with most reviewers of the Scofield Study Bible is that they are narrow minded. Each study Bible has its strengths and weaknesses, and just because one takes on a particular theological slant, does not make it bad. I own a variety of study Bibles from the Oxford Annotated Study Bible to the Archaelogical Study Bible to MacArthur's Study Bible to the Scofield, and several others. All have their good points and points where I disagree.
The Scofield Study Bible III ESV provides good information from a conservative, orthodox Christian standpoint. The dispensationalism is there, but not emphasized. If one has a problem with dispensationalism, simply ignore it. It is only a theory of biblical interpretation, and nothing to get heated over.
Binding, leather, maps, and typeface are all excellent. I generally very much dislike "bonded leather" Bibles. However, Oxford's bonded leather is very well made and I actually bought this Bible with bonded leather, as that was the only way I could get it in burgundy. It has the feel of a well made top grain leather Bible. My only pet peeve is the red letters. If a publisher wishes to use red letters (which I think are not at all necessary), I wish they would use a dark red, not a bright red like Oxford, that is so distracting to the eyes.
