If you want to know where all the ideas regarding "The End of the World" in Hal Lindsay's "Late Great Planet Earth" and LaHay and Jenkins' "Left Behind" series come from, look no further. Here is the Scofield Reference Bible, based (somewhat loosely) on John Nelson Darby's interpretations, in his "Synopses to the Books of the Bible." Of course there are several other interpretations of the Bible eschatology that don't agree with this one (in particular the Jehovah's Witnesses and the Seventh-Day Adventist interpretations). The upshot seems to be that no matter what interpretation of "End of the World" you choose to believe, you are probably wrong! (The universe does not conform itself to the belief systems of human beings. Get used to it!).

Hmm. Having said all the above, what score should I give this? How about - ( )

The "Authorized Version", with topical references to the themes of Scripture, with annotations, summaries, definitions, chronology and index.

Did I mention footnotes? This is the one with footnotes right beneath the note on the same page.

But it is wickedly small print.

Disambiguation notice
Please combine only the editions edited by C.I. Scofield here - the 1909 Scofield Reference Bible and its 1917 revision. These can be a little difficult to identify because it's now in the public domain and reprinted by a lot of presses other than Oxford, often with words like "Original" or "Old" in the title. If it's not for the KJV translation, it isn't this one.

The "New Scofield Reference Bible" is a 1967 (and hence in copyright) revision by an editorial committee chaired by E. Schuyler English. It's reprinted under the title "The Oxford Scofield Study Bible". It's a different work, available for at least 4 translations - KJV, NASB, NIV and NKJV.

The "Scofield Study Bible III" is yet a third work, a 2003 revision, again by Oxford, available in quite a lot of Bible translations.
