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:

GREAT BIBLE! Apr 28, 2008
This is a quality made bible. nice leather, binding & bookmark. it has loads of references & tracking down additional information on a specific subject, it doesnt get easier than this. I also like this in the NKJV being the closest in accuracy to the KJV. great price too. highly recommended!
Wonderful Bible! Mar 1, 2008
What a awsome piece of craftmanship. This Bible has the best leather I have ever seen on a Bible. The reference system is great and would be great for anyone. I think this was a great investment and can't wait to start reading it. God Bless you!!
Best and Unbiased in Study Bibles Feb 27, 2005
Please see my NASB review of the Thompson for all its features, advantages and disadvantages. Why 4 stars, and not 5? Kirkbride has cheapened its Bibles since I bought my first, the KJV 1964 edition. The pages are not as well-attached, the paper is much slicker and thinner--in short, more like Nelson and World Bibles. My old KJV Thompson has gone through thick and thin for many years and I'm not sure about these newer, cheaper ones. I notice Kirkbride is having these printed up in Korea now, also, and the type, particularly on the NASB, is not of the quality of the older ones, either. But then, what nowadays is better made? It'd probably cost at least twice the price of this Bible to make it the old way. Plus, this in no way negates the superb layout and 'neutrality' of this study Bible. If you want NKJV, this is the one!
