    I had one, and thought it read much easier than the kjv, with its word changes, do KJVO see it as being a KJV still though?

    In the minds of the KJV only folks, one willy nilly translation, the KJV, is far superior to another willy nilly translation, i.e. any modern English translation.

    True, but would they allow the Scofield edition to still be a real KJV?

    Not knocking that, as I wish mine did not fall apart at the seams from use!

    KJV-only author Peter Ruckman wrote: “We recommend any edition of the AV (with any number of variations from any other edition)” (Bible Believers’ Bulletin, Sept., 1985, p. 3). In this same article, Ruckman commented: “In our group, we hold that ANY edition of the AV is reliable” (p. 2). In this article, Ruckman’s only stated exception from being an edition of the AV was the NKJV.

    Again concerning the KJV, Ruckman claimed that “any edition will do just fine” (Unknown Bible, pp. 1, 86). Ruckman referred to “any edition in any century” of the KJV (How to Teach the “Original” Greek, p. 119).

    I think that Ruckman may have criticized and rejected the 1967 New Scofield in other writings.

    thanks!
    I had one that fell apart, does Oxford still make that edition, or are they all the "normal" kjv text in their Scofields now?
