I heard/read great reviews and I am convinced and happy with this bible. It has a small concordance in the back also but what I love is the explanation and details that it covers on bottom of the page. Easy to understand and very happy!

To those who love studying the Bible, especially the King James Version, no other Bible and notes come close to the Old Scofield Bible. This man was ahead of his time. The notes and Concordance are from 1917, but like the Holy Bible they are as relevant today as it was back then. The Bible was just as advertised. The price was great. The shipping charges at Overstock can't be beat. Sharon in Shreveport, LA.
The 1917 Old Scofield Bible is second only to the 1967 New Scofield Bible. Those interested in understanding the dispensations, rightly dividing the Scriptures and putting forth the effort to build an intimate relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ will have a head start with this Bible. One genuinely interested in learning God's plan for all the ages will not want a translation that is easy to read. They will want the Bible that is closest to the original language and is without man made interpretations. Scofield provides foot notes that are man's thoughts while leaving the Scriptures intact. You may also want the Strong's Concordance (KJV) and Vine's Complete Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words. The middle columnn references are extra helps that do not take away from the inerrancy of the Word of God. Whether a Seminary Student or just one who delights in making practical the rich truths of the Word, this Bible is only out done by its Second Edition, the 67 Scofield. I have not only recommended it to babes in Christ...I have purchased this Bible and gave it to those earnestly desiring to grow in the Lord to maturity. I will continue to purchase it for others who are diving into the Word after they have identified themselves with the Death, Burial And Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and were baptized Spiritually into The Body of Christ. I give it 5 out of 5 Stars.
