More About Frank Charles Thompson & Frank C. Thompson

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:
  • Over 100,000 topical references
  • Over 8,000 Chain Topics
  • Updated Archaeological Supplement with photos and maps
  • Outline studies of each book of the Bible
  • Journey maps and Bible harmonies
  • Biblical Atlas
  • Bible Book Outlines
  • Over 4,000,000 Thompson Chain-Reference Bibles sold!

Reviews - What do customers think about Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible-NKJV?

Bible as described but CAUTION about its weight  Feb 25, 2010
Having read many of the reviews before ordering this Bible, I can verify that the reviews accurately describe the positive aspects and negative features. The cross-reference is like no other Bible I've ever used. For a reader doing biblical research, those features are fantastic.

However, the paper is VERY thin. If you are a reader who marks your pages, you should buy a different Bible. Anything you write on one page will be completely visible on the reverse side.

The only thing I don't remember reading is the WEIGHT of this book. Because it is a large print book, it is quite heavy. If you are thinking of purchasing this as a gift, you should consider if that person can comfortably carry such a heavy book. For example, my elderly mother might find it too heavy for daily use.

That being said, for my uses and reading habits, this study Bible is just right.
Love it!  Feb 12, 2010
One of the best study Bibles I've ever used! It's Scripture interupts Scripture. You will not be disappointed with this Bible!
Love it...  Nov 23, 2009
I order this item as a gift for my mother, and it was brand new and sealed very clean(the packaging was worn but the Bible was in excellent condish...My mother couldn't find it in the church and several people looked everywhere, there was momentary havoc. One of the members called back with her mixing it up...but MY MOM LOVES HER NEW BIBLE! Thanks, I truly recommend this carrier. {:D
A must have for anyone!!  Oct 5, 2009
A wonderful bible full of what's really needed today, A CHAIN-REFERENCE SYSTEM. I am surprised that people are still inventing ways around the tri-unity of our great God, if you are a new christian please read men who have been blessed with a gift of teaching. Look up men such as John Owen, Johnathan Edwards, A.W. Pink, Charles H. Spurgeon, William Ames, and the like, Men who have been time tested. This oneness doctine is heresy and should be called so by every bible believing christian. On topic I would highly recommend this bible. God bless.
Great!  Jul 6, 2009
I am very excited about this product. I finally received it and I will buy more products in the future from this seller...Thanks a lot.
