This year marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible (1909). It is hard to believe in our era of study Bibles for most every demographic group that the Scofield Bible was the first of its kind. The Scofield Reference Bible was uniquely responsible for popularizing dispensational theology, eventually making dispensationalism the theology assumed by everyday English-speaking Christians for much of the twentieth century. This book, written by American Todd Mangum and Irish scholar Mark Sweetnam, explores the origins and impact of the Scofield Reference Bible on both sides of the Atlantic. Readable and fair, it provides insight into the approach, intentions and theology of the Scofield Bible, valuable to both fans and critics of the Scofield Bible. It also provides rare insight into the life story of C. I. Scofield himself, which has become a subject of interest and controversy in recent years.

Walvoord Award for Outstanding Work in Eschatology from Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned his Ph.D. in Theological Studies in 2001.
