More About C. I. Scofield
Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921), Bible student and author, was born in Lenawee County, Michigan, reared in Wilson County, Tennessee, and privately educated. Converted at 36, he was ordained to the congregational ministry in 1882, and served as pastor of the First Church, Dallas, Texas (1882-1895), and again (1902-1907); and of the Moody Church, Northfield, Massachusetts (1895-1902). He spent his later years lecturing on biblical subjects on both sides of the Atlantic. The work for which he is best remembered is his 1909 dispensational premillennial Scofield Reference Bible.
Reviews - What do customers think about KJV Scofield Study Bible III-Black/Acorn BW Indexed S/S ?
Not a replacement for the Old Scofield Bible, but definitely worth having! May 10, 2006
I decided to get a copy of the New Scofield Study Bible (aka Scofield Study Bible III) because I heard that the King James Version of it contains significantly more notes that correct some of the problems with the King James translation (i.e. words that had different meanings in 1611 than they do today, etc...). It also contains other notes and study helps that are not in the Old Scofield Bible. BUT, I would not recommend getting this one instead of the old one.
The back cover says that Scofield's notes and study system have been augmented (not revised). I beg to differ on this. They have shortened A LOT of the subject headings that Scofield included throughout the text, and have not always included Scofield's notes word for word, but have taken out parts, and added their (editors') own insights. They have removed a lot of Scofield's extremely helpful "parenthetic" designations. I'm of the opinion that if they're going to keep Scofield's name on the Bible, they shouldn't mess with his notes. Adding more notes, referrances and study helps, and even notes that disagree with some of Scofield's original conclusions, is fine (Scofield was just as fallible as anyone else...). They just should have left his notes put.
This being said, this Bible does deserve 5 stars. It is extremely helpful, well laid out, and the "Black/Acorn Basketweave B.L." edition is quite nice. If you're only going to buy one Scofield Bible though, get the Old one (1917 notes).
