That way you can judge for yourself how your eyeballs like it.

BTW--- I agree that a Study or Reference Bible are a very nice thing to have, for the reasons you stated. The Companion Bible is the Dad/Older Brother to Scofield's edition.

You didn't ask,,, but I would suggest that you give a look-see to The Open Bible (in the KJV) published by Thomas Nelson. FULL of helps of all kinds ( Like the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible is) and it has a huge Cyclopedic Index up front so that you can look up and find bunches of things. Big difference between the Open and the Thompson is that Thompson has the references in the margins next to the Scripture. Open has the Index up front. Neither of them are Dispensationalist, but rather they encourage the reader to study/decide for himself/herself.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._W._Bullinger {Bio and links}

...and now for just about the lloonnggest web address ever:

http://books.google.com/books?id=OII...d=1_1#PPR15,M1

After all that typing I hope you click over there and read/look at the pages.

P.S. hmmm? Don't know how that happened, but I typed in the web address which was about 3 lines for the url and hit "submit reply" and only the first line shows as the link...
Yeah, the forums shortens it, but it works just fine. Also, I did post a link above which allows you to download the Companion Bible by books, in pdf format. I'm not sure if you can d/l it from google books.

Peace and Love,
Stephen

Hehe, sorry, ol' teddy bear stays right where he is. He's there to scare off the NIV and keep an eye on Ruckman

I'll check it out. I was just wondering if it was worth the cash. I know many here are anti any study Bible. I have started what seems to be a Bible collection. I might as well get one and get it over with. I may try getting the The Open Bible as well. I still pretty much use the Old Scofield most all of the time. I always try to use the same Bible so I can transfer all of my notes from my old Bible to my new Bible. I do this about every 5 years or so. I retire them before they get to warn. What I really want is a Scofield Bible with a blank page in between ever page of text, but they are hard to find. if I ever find them I may by 6 or 8.

As you can see both Stephanos & Ruckman get attacked at night by the NIV that lives under Stephanos's bed, and only the teddy bear can protect them both!

Although some hyperdispensationalists eventually embrace annihilationalism (or sometimes universalism), I don't think Bullinger did. He did teach soul sleep, though.

That is not good at all!!!!! What were his thoughts on the Rich man and Lazarus? I'm just wondering how he over came that?

Yeah, I think it's worth getting one if you're a Bible collector like myself. The notes in the Companion Bible are pretty decent. You'd just have to use discernment when reading them.

Peace and Love,
Stephen
