AMAZING VALUE Sep 15, 2008
Wow! I just recieved my long awaited bible, I couldnt wait to get it! The value for this bible is unbeliavable. The leather is very nice, soft but smooth,and yes, this bible although it doesnt state it, has tabs too! Its beautiful, the inside presentation pages are even nice. The pages are threaded together so its durable. I am very pleased. I have several translations of the bible, because I teach bible study. All my bibles are leather... I prefer leather because they lay open nice and last longer. This is by far the nicest leather of all of them, and cost the least of all my bibles. I am not very fond of study bibles, sometimes the extra stuff in it is not useful and is just opinions. I wanted a NASB since it is one of the most literal translations, so I researched which would have what I needed in a study bible. This one was perfect. Next to my open study bible, which I love except the fact that its NKJ, this is my new favorite study bible. I recommend you buy it!
Great Value - Beautiful Bible Apr 21, 2008
This is the dark red leather bible. The leather is nice and thick and appears it will be very durable. Has a little more shine to it than I would like. The pages are guilded in gold which looks good, and it is thumb indexed, which I was looking for. None of my other Bibles have this feature. I realize I should have the books of the bible memorized, but at times I find it hard to find some of the old testament books.
This is my first NASB translation, and I think I will really enjoy it. I did lots of research about the accuracy on other translations prior to making this purchase, and this translation ranks very high with most biblical authorities. It is also the translation our pastor frequently reads from.
The reference materials seem very sound, and are very helpful. There are not as many references and comments as with the Life Application Bibles, however this is a smaller Bible, and much easier to carry around, so you lose some of the bulk.
Here are the Pros and Cons for me, I realize this is subjective.
Pros: -Solid NASB Translation -Moderate size -Heavy Leather -Thumb Indexed -Sound & adequate reference materials -Smyth sewn binding - lays flat -Nice clear font - easy to read -Several large full color maps -nice in-text black and white maps to assist you in your study
Cons: -Leather too shiney -Red letter New Testament - I prefer not to have red lettering -this site does not provide Monogramming -Only one ribbon marker. Some have two which is nice -Family Record - Marriage Page - wasted space in a Bible for me, I would rather have a personal notes page.
Scofield III NASB Will Last You a Lifetime of Use!!!! Sep 21, 2007
In a world flooded with cheap, poorly constructed Bibles from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan - this Oxford Scofield III NASB is a wonderful example of what Bible Printing should be.
1) The Pages are actually folded in sections and sewn into the binding. This process is often referred to as "smyth-sewn" and ensures that this Bible will stand up to years of use and study. (Thomas Nelson and Zondervan cheaply glue single pages onto a flimsy cardboard backing. This ensures that your Bible pages will fall out after even moderate use of your scriptures.)
2) The quality of paper is also excellent and will stand up to prolonged use. The paper is a pleasing white and is supple and flexible to the touch. (The inferior paper used by most American Bible publishers is prone to tearing and discoloration).
3) The quality of the Leather cover is also good and is sturdy while still being flexible (Genuine Leather). It should break in nicely over the years. The information that came with my Bible said they use either pigskin or cow hide.
4) The Scofield study notes consist of book outlines, chapter headings, in-text maps, verse explanations, and verse chain references. The balance between text and commentary is about 60/40. Those of you used to the Macarthur Study Bible may be a bit disappointed.
I also recommend: Scofield III ESV (English Standard Version) Scofield III NKJV Scofield III KJV
I do not recommend the Scofield III HCSB (Holman Christian Standard Bible) The translation is too watered down like the NIV. Sorry.
Good color for my wife Jan 15, 2007
This is the best quality Bible I have ever purchased yet the price was very reasonable. There was not an option for a color unless I missed it. I assumed it would be black. It came burgundy leather (very high quality leather) with a peach colored place marking ribbon. The Bible was for my wife and see loved it.
Scofield has made a great contribution to the Christian faith by clearing up a lot of confussion regarding prophesy.
A great Bible Jan 4, 2007
First, just let me say that this Bible is of excellent quality. I find the binding looks good and feels good to touch. The type is comfortable to read and the thumb index is very helpful. Not all Bibles have that thumb-index and if you are as out of practice reading your Bible as I was, these will be very helpful! Especially in Sunday School class if you have a teacher who is very familiar with the scripture and likes to jump around a lot.
I completely agree with Scofield on every point and every note. The doctrine he espouses goes hand in hand with the actual words of our Lord. Scofield excudes common sense when dealing with such things as the Creation (a very sticky point and a stumbling block for me in the past, but no more). Some might be offended by his Creation explanation, because he does not adhere to the 6 24-hour day fundamentalist view. This was one of the things that actually SOLD me on this Bible. Fundamentalists may not like this Bible for that reason, but it has been the answer for me.
The New American Standard translation is easy to read in comparison to the King James Version. It is less contemporary than the NIV, but I find that the NIV goes too far sometimes in its contemporary language and robs some of the strength of the text. Not so with the NASB ... it's taken out all of the Thees and Thous and Verilys, but the urgency of the text is still felt on every page. This is not a Bible that has watered down Jesus' message. It does not take a "namby pamby" approach to your salvation. It clearly and emphatically tells you what is required of you to enter the Kingdom of Heaven ... one way and only one way.
The Notes and insets are quite informative and helpful. There are some nice maps in the back.
I highly recommend this Bible for those of you who had your religion educated out of you in one of our liberal institutes of higher learning.
