More About Thompson Frank C

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

Nice Bible  Feb 25, 2007
Bought this bible as a gift for my husband and carries it with him when we go to church. Sturdy and very nicely made.
Good product, good helps.  Feb 22, 2007
Way back years and years ago, when I became committed to Bible study, the Thompson Chain reference Bible (NIV) was the first study Bible I bought. I loved it back then, It was a hard cover and it lasted 2-3 years till it was destroyed from much use- I used a Ryrie along side for the dispensational, evangelical notes. Over the Years I have bought other study Bibles including the Ryrie, Expositors, and the Dake. The Thompson is great for following key words though the Bible, it has great helps in the back such as a great archeological supplement, a concordance-dictionary, maps charts and more but as for study it would be better to have the notes on the same page of the text. One reviewer said you can see the type though the pages and he was right, the paper quality is not great. Overall the TCR is good, but not great, I prefer the DAKE Annotated Reference Bible. the DAKE Annotated Reference Bible has notes on the same page as the text, both on the side and bottom of text, it has the key words in Hebrew and Greek, which the TCR does not, has a good system to follow words though the text like the TCR and is easier to use for study. Take my advice and get the Dake its like having the TCR and the Ryrie together and more. Its hear at this site too get the large print one.
Good study bible  Jan 21, 2007
I have had my Thompson for several years now. I evidently got it when quality of the binding and pages were still good, based on what I see below in the reviews by others.

I like my Thompson but prefer a Ryrie, MacArthur, or NIV Study Bible basically because my personal preference is to have all the information on one page. The Thompson has topics corresponding to each verse listed along the side margins along with a number. If you look that number up in the BACK of the book, you will find other related verses completely written out and grouped under that topic name. This makes it so you have to constantly flap back and forth to look up the topics and related references. I prefer to just have the reference and look it up. Having each reference verse written out also creates more bulk and a heavier bible.

However, the Thompson is also jam packed with nice informative maps, character studies, archeological information, etc. also all in the back of the bible. I would rather have them interspersed in the books they are related to, again a personal preference of mine.

All in all, if you don't mind constant flipping of pages and added bulk, and like the topical breakdown, this might be the bible for you. If you prefer all of your information on the same page as the text itself, this bible might be a bit of a disappointment.

It is not a bad study bible, just not my type, which is why I gave it the three stars inspite of all the good information.
Excellent study bible  Jan 18, 2007
Excellent study bible - 3rd one I've purchased. Great translation and good cross references.
Very Poor Quality Paper  Nov 6, 2006
I recently purchased a very used 1988 $42.95 regular hardcover edition. The paper IS extremely thin, and can see through the other side. You might consider buying one of the used older editions at a huge (Under $6) discount to the retail, in order to get the Thompson-Chain Reference Study material. Keep in mind, that with lesser material quality, a "good condition" format is going to be well-worn and have the appearence of having taken a pounding! But with the supposed low quality as posted on some of the more expensive editions, you might want to save the money for a nicer edition of another bible, with a different company. A pre-look of a real life sample at a bookstore would not be a waste of time.
