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.
Today, the Thompson® Chain-Reference Bible offers you a complete study library in one volume. With over 78 practical features for in depth Scriptural appreciation and understanding, nothing can match what the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible offers:

Best Study Bible I bouht yet! Jun 22, 2008
More expensive but worth it with the workmanship quality. The 'CoreStudy' part of this bible isn't a commentary like the others. I would suggest getting the non-tab version (ISBN 0887075169 black; 0887075185 burgundy) if you are buying at this site. They have more in stock and it is discounted from retail more
Excellent study bible Feb 18, 2008
I love the content of this Bible. I had one before that fell apart though. I loved the Bible so much that I took a chance on buying a new one. It seems to be made better and somehow it is a little thinner. It has definitely been improved in my opinion. The chains links are the best. You can pick a subject and trace it all the way through the bible. If you want more, they give you related chains. I also love that it is not filled with opinionated commentary. Great Bible.

The Bible is the correct version; however, it is not the color of leather that I thought I ordered.
The Best Study Bible Sep 14, 2007
I have been through just about every study Bible out there, but this is the last I'll ever bother with. Letting scripture interpet scripture is the best study method and the Thompson method is great for following scriptural ideas throughout the Bible. There are also ample other study aids and resources but the indexing system is the crown jewel. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have one Bible this is the one I would want, without a doubt. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is there wasn't a calfskin NASB or ESV version, especially in the handy size. I love limp calfskin covers, just the way they feel in my hand when I read them. Maybe the Thompson people will read this (hint, hint) and start publishing one.
Thompson Aug 21, 2007
I own a Thompson Chain-Reference Bible and the biggest draw for me is that this Bible allows Scripture to interpret Scripture. Most study Bibles have the notes, thoughts and all too often the opinions of the people authoring the study Bible. Where the Thompson has chain-references on the side margin that pertain to what is in the text itself not what someone else's study-notes may imply. A very safe and fulfilling way to study God's word. I love it.
