More About Frank Charles Thompson
Dr. Frank Charles Thompson was a young preacher in the late 1800s when he became disappointed with the reference Bibles being sold to preachers. Dr. Thompson believed the Bible should be presented in a simple, but scholarly way. He saw the need for a well-organized reference Bible that would be of practical use to the layman as well as a minister.
In 1890, Dr. Thompson began the work he would continue for the rest of his life. He completed the "thought suggestions" opposite the verses throughout the Bible. These are what became the "chain-links" that are the heart of the Thompson system. Some of the men in Dr. Thompson's church saw his Bible and told him this would be a great help to them in their Bible study too. They encouraged Dr. Thompson to have his Bible, with marginal references, published so that everyone could enjoy the blessing of this helpful study tool.
In 1908, the first edition of the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible® was printed by Methodists Book Concern of Dobbs Ferry, New York. It became known as the most helpful, trustworthy and unbiased study Bible available. The Thompson® Bible continues to have that reputation today.
In 1913, Dr. Thompson joined with B.B. Kirkbride in Indianapolis, Indiana to form the Kirkbride Bible Company. This was to assure the constant improvement of this remarkable study tool, and the widest distribution possible.

Reviews - What do customers think about NASB Thompson Chain Regular-Black Bond S/S?
Superior contents but construction could be better. Nov 3, 2005
The NASB is a must for anyone who is serious about Bible study. Everyone and anyone who is familiar with scripture knows that the NASB is the most accurate word for word translation from the origional tounges. The Thompson Chain system is used my ministers and lay alike for study and preparation. It is extremely exhaustive on subject matter and topics from Genesis to Revelation. The extras are almost overwhelming such as harmonies, maps, person and place index, ect...
The Bible is a little heavy and because of it's thickness, it won't fit into my bible cover. The pages seem very thin and you can see type from the other side of the page (but not too terrible). I havent tried marking yet bacause I am afraid of the ink going through the page so I might try a dark pencil or something.
All in all the Bible is worth the money entirely for the contents alone. I wouldn't recommend it for a new Christian, for them I would recommend a New Open Bible Study Edition by Thomas Nelson Publishers. But the Thompson Chain Study Bible is superb if you can look past a few construction shortcomings.

I own a Thompson in the KJV/NKJV, but my favorite translation is the NASB. Problem being is in that particular translation your choices are limited. The best thing about a Thompson is it uses scripture to back up scripture, not a person or a group of people's interpretation.
I have 2 study Bibles that I found myself using very frequently, The MacArthur study Bible being the one most used. I really like MacArthur and his writings. I hold his opinion in high regard. But I found myself looking more for the answer to a passage in his comments instead of God's word. Obviously all authors, no matter how good, have the same sinful nature as you or I. So I decided to get this Bible in my translation of choice and let it's scripture helps guide me, instead of another person.
Construction seems reasonably good,very little bleed through using Zebra hi-lighters in the yellow shade. I'm happy with the product. Looking for an Nasb study Bible with comments, choose the Ryrie. You want scripture to answer the question, choose the Thompson
