We believe this is the finest Bible for any student of
God's Wonderful Word and here are just some of the highlights:
1.) It is called the Companion Bible
because it has a wide margin that is intended to be companion to the text, and the whole is designed
as the companion to all readers of the Bible.
2.) The text is that of the authorized
version of 1611 as published by the revisers in their "Parallel Bible" in 1885.
3.) The wide margins contain valuable
notes which are sometimes critical, explanatory or suggestive on subjects of special importance or difficulty.
4.) The Companion Bible has 198 appendixes to further guide the sincere student of the Word including explanations of Hebrew words and their use, charts, parallel passages, maps, lists of proper names, calendars, and timelines.
5.) Dark type in the New Testament emphasizes quotations from the Old Testament.
6.) The margins are also used to bring
out the use of figures of speech which are the Holy Spirit's own markings, which call special attention to a thought that is worthy of our deepest consideration.
7.) The spiritual significance of numbers is pointed out when applicable.
8.) The use of structures prove even more that the Scriptures were written in a divine manner.
The one man who is most responsible for the margin notes and the appendixes is Dr. E. W. Bullinger. Dr. Bullinger lived in Canterbury, England, and began work with the Companion Bible in his later years. The work was supposed to be in six volumes, but he only completed the first four, the Old Testament. Others completed the last two, the New Testament. All of these volumes were finally combined into one book, and appear as the notes and the appendixes in the Companion Bible.
