My birthday present arrived via UPS today. A New Bible. I am a lover of books and a collector of Bibles. You can never have too many Bibles if you ask me. Sonya asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told her a Bible. She was shocked! (Just kidding!) Actually, I believe she thought, “Why do you need another Bible?” So she told me to pick out the Bible I want and get it.
I have been looking at the Scofield Bible for quite a while. It has been in print for a 100 years and is a quality study Bible with great notes. It has a smaller scale of the chain reference system made popular in the Thompson Chain Bible. Scofield’s notes give a sound background of the Scriptures.
The thing I like most about a Bible is the quality of the leather. This version of the Scofield, produced by Oxford Press, has a good quality leather that has the feel of goatskin. I was impressed! You can’t beat the quality and the price on this!
