The front page of the Bible reads: " The Companion Bible, being the Authorized version of 1611, With Structures,and Notes, Critical, Explanatory and Suggestive, and with 198 Appendixes.

Two features i have found distinctive and useful in this Bible are: the double column page and the set of 198 Appendixes. The first feature is that the text of the Bible is on the left, Structures, and notes, explanations and cross-references are on the right. Explanation of these and marks in the margin are set out and explained in the Preface of the Bible (Too many to list here). The Structures referred to make The Companion Bible an unique edition, and require special notice. They give not a mere Analysis evolved from the Text by human ingenuity, but a Symmetrical Exhibition of the Word itself, which may be discerned by the humblest reader of the Sacred Text, and seen to e one of the most important evidences of the Divine Inspiration of it words.

The second feature, is the large amount of information bearing on the various questions raised by the phenomena of the Sacred Text. Each Appendix is a treatise or discussion in itself by learned scholars of the Bible. ( )
