Reliable old Thompson - now newer than ever! Feb 8, 2007
My old Thompsons had fallen apart, and as much as I would have liked an NIV (or even a HCSB) the NKJV is new and expanded. It is well worth buying for the widened and updated features. The chain reference system and some of the other helps are so useful, I just have to have a Thompsons on my desk. I find it invaluable that almost every chapter has an approximate date attached to it, making the OT very easy to track. The binding is semi-yap and very good for the price, and although I would have liked calfskin, the difference in cost makes this the best buy.
not leather as advertised! Jan 9, 2007
The content of this Bible is wonderful, but it is BONDED leather, not "leather bound" as advertised.
great bible! Jul 13, 2006
This is highly recommended, great translation and the thompson chain reference is a great way to learn and study the bible.
Nice job! Apr 15, 2006
This is something different for me and I have enjoyed reading this new version. I still prefer the KJV. Nelson had to use thinner paper than I would prefer. However with over 2400 pages the Bible would probably tilt the scales at about eight pounds. my favorite books are conatined in the Holy Bible, this new version has even added to my enjoyment!
Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible Sep 29, 2005
My review of this study Bible relates to its content, not its construction. I use the following study Bibles regularly: "New Oxford Annotated Bible 3rd Ed., NRSV", "NIV Study Bible", "NRSV Cross Reference Ed., Anglicized", "NASB Reference Ed.", and the subject of this review "NKJV Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible"(hereafter TCR). The exterior dimensions are 9.4" x 7.1" x 1.8" (2407 pages). This is not a totable Bible. The first section of the TCR contains the fully cross-referenced NKJV with words of Jesus in red (1619 pages). The remainder of the TCR contains Bible helps (788 pages). The type appears to be about 9 point with 1/2 point line spacing. Pages are very thin and care must be taken not to fold or tear them. Larger type and heavier paper would be appreciated but would swell the size of this already hefty Bible to gargantuan proportions. The text is set in two columns for ease of reading. Cross-references are to the left and right of the respective columns immediately adjacent to the related verse. TCR cross-references are by subject. Each cross-reference contains a TCR Index number, the TCR subject, and the next Bible verse in the "chain" for that subject. For example, if you were studying the gospel of "John" at John 1:9 the TCR cross-reference reads "2168 Christ the Light, 8:12". Thus the TCR index number is "2168", the subject is "Christ the Light", and the next verse in the "chain" is John 8:12. Going to John 8:12 you would find "2168 Christ the Light, 12:35" and so on to the end of the "chain". What makes this different than most other study Bibles is the "TCR Numeric Index". Looking up TCR Index number 2168 we find ALL references to subject "Christ the Light" in order from Genesis to Revelation. You can also do a lookup using the subject. For example, say you are asked a question by an un-believer, "Why was Jesus Christ called 'the Light of the world' and what does it mean"? First you would look up the subject "Christ" or "Jesus" in the "TCR Alphabetic Index". For example, in section "C", we find "Christ", under the "Christ" entry we find "Light, the ... 2168". Now we can look in the "TCR Numeric Index" for the "2168" entry. Here we find the "chain" of all relevant verses for further study. Why is this better than a "Strong's" search? Using the latest "Strongest Strong's ..." under word "light" we find 288 entries. The "Strong's" search is less efficient because many of the 288 entries are not relevant to the subject in question. The full compliment of TCR Bible helps consists of the cross-references (100,000 entries), "Alphabetic Index (8,000 entries)", "Numerical Index (4,200 entries)", "Outline Studies", "Bible Character Studies", "Bible Harmonies", "Archaeological Supplement", "Hebrew Calendar", "Concordance", and "Bible Maps". At $36 you can not go wrong. If I could have only one study Bible, this would be it.
