    If it is something out of print I would check some place like Amazon, or Ebay.

    Check these out for the Scofields:

    And I'd check out Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and eBay, as well.

    I'd guess that you will hit on at least a couple of the above.

    On the other hand, I'm looking for a wide-margin, 1967, New Scofield Reference Bible, in 'black letter', which is a bit harder to come by. (I detest red-letter Bibles.)

    Ed, why do you detest red letter Bibles? I have 2 black letters, but I like the red letter better. (sounds like a jingle :laugh: )

    Because, whether wittingly or unwittingly, 'red-letter' Bibles are unBiblical to the core, IMO. They wind up effectively differentiating Scripture against Scripture, in that they elevate the words recorded as being quoted by Jesus above the other words of Scripture.

    This even includes the words attributed to and expressly spoken by God, the Father. (Matt. 3:17; 17:5; e.g.), and the words of expressly spoken by God, the Holy Spirit. (I Tim. 4:1-3; e.g.).

    "All Scripture is God-breathed out ..." (II Tim. 3:16)

    There are not 'degrees of inspiration' taught in Scripture.

    If that were not more than enough, 'red-letter' editions are also harder to see. :BangHead:

    I see you're point. You're right. All scripture is God breathed.

    Oddly enough, our pastor spoke about that last night. He said some people think only the "red" words are inspired and I was reminded of my MIL (catholic) who believes that as well. Maybe that's because she never read any of the black words?

    You make an excellent point. :thumbs:

    Why don't you look at the Cambridge Wide-Margin KJV, it is probably the softest leather you will touch. I love mine. Next year I'll get a KJV from Allan's Bible in Scotland.
