Book Description

Oct. 15 2005
Here the well-received augmentation of the ScofieldRG study notes and reference system is combined with a modern version of the Bible. The New American Standard Bible is celebrated for accurately communicating the meaning of the original texts to today's readers. It is an excellent guide for those seeking a contemporary English translation with a high degree of fidelity to the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible. The NASB translation is accompanied by a wealth of features that clarify the ideas underlying the Scofield's annotations for modern readers. An abundance of factual information is presented in topical articles, charts, and lists that add depth and richness to study time. In addition, there are enhanced book introductions, accurate in-text maps, authoritative full color maps, and page bottom notes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Bible July 13 2006
By Jesse M. Roland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
First let me say that if you don't like the NASB you are entitled to that opinion. Don't buy this Bible or any other using this version.

If you like the NASB or if you want to try one of the better "modern" translations then this is an excellent investment. The quality of construction is outstanding. Oxford has done a great job in this regard.

For those looking for a comprehensive "Study Bible" let me advise you to try another. For me, the Scofield is a "reference" Bible. The notes have more to do with CI Scofield advancing his ideas about dispensationalism. There are many notes related to prophecy because of this and you will find them pretty much in keeping with the current views among evangelicals of the pre-trib camp. Still the notes can be sparse. If verse explanations and background is what you are looking for this is not the Bible for you.

If you want a more thorough Study Bible in this particular translation I would recommend the NASB Study Bible by Zondervan (using the same notes from the NIV Study Bible).

The advantage to the Scofield in general is the way that the text is layed out. The outlining with the headings (and subheadings) within the text is unparalleled. The topical and cross reference system is also top notch. The indexes to notes and subjects in the back are very helpful.

The Scofield has been a mainstay in evangelical Christianity for 100 years because of the insight of CI Scofield that has helped many to understand God's plan through the ages and the overall excellence of Oxford in producing these Bibles. It takes its place right alongside the Thompson Chain as one of the great Bibles of the last century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, But Not Perfect March 1 2006
By BibleLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
I purchased The Scofield Study Bible III: New American Standard Bible, in Burgundy Genuine Leather. After having used the New Scofield for 32 years, in many ways, this Bible is an improvement. Below are outlined the improvements that I have found in this edition:

1. The major weakness of the Scofields of the past has been their reliance upon the King James Version, which is now 400 years old. With this NASB edition, the translation itself is no longer an issue.

2. Another problem with previous editions of the Scofields was their binding-which invariably broke under time. This one appears to have a much stronger binding than those previously-issued. The burgundy pigskin cover is stunning in its appearance.

3. The layout and overall appearance of the pages themselves is much cleaner and much more appealing-especially with the use of boxes around the summary footnotes for each major doctrine.

4. Cross-references are easier to locate in the margins. I'm thankful that the Lockman Foundation allowed Oxford to use their own Scofield cross-referencing system without the clutter that the addition of the NASB references would have caused.

5. The Concordance is in a 3-column-per-page format and is a healthy 132 pages long.

6. Book introductions and outlines have been expanded and are more detailed.

7. And, the Index Of Proper Names from the Old Scofield has been retained. This index gives the meaning, pronunciation, and location for all proper names found in Scripture.

I have two criticisms of this Bible:

1. While the New Scofield was jam-packed with footnotes, this edition has had some of those footnotes edited out, so they are fewer in number than those found in the New Scofield.

2. For the life of me, I do not understand why Oxford issued this as a "Red-Letter" edition, with the words of Christ in red. I find it hard to take any study Bible with red letters seriously. It was a needless and most-unwanted addition.

At $34.64, this Bible is a best-buy-the best of the Scofield Bibles of the past based upon a much better translation, a much-more appealing page format, and in a stronger binding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scofield III NASB Will Last You a Lifetime of Use!!!! Sept. 21 2007
By B. Streutker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING VALUE Sept. 15 2008
By A. Alongi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good Product Sept. 22 2010
By David Basham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
This is exactly what I wanted when I ordered a study Bible. The pages are not too thin and the cover is a nice imitation leather with a zipper. There is a ribbon to mark your page and the text is readable. It is well worth the money.
