Product Details

Early in his ministry as a Methodist Preacher, Dr. Frank Charles Thompson realized that the reference Bibles then on the market failed to present the Bible as it should be presented - in a clear, scholarly, interesting, yet simple and compact form. He saw the need for a well-organized reference Bible that would be of practical use to the layman as well as the minister.

He began his original research in 1890. After he completed the thought suggestions opposite the verses throughout the Bible, some of the men in his church saw his Bible and told him that this was what they needed to help them in their Bible study. They encouraged Dr. Thompson to have his Bible, with marginal references, published so that everyone could have the advantage of these helps in their Bible study.

In 1908, the first printing and binding of the first edition of the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible® was released by Methodist's Book Concern of Dobbs Ferry, New York.

    Few Bible study helps have been as universally used as the Thompson Chain-Reference.
    Dr. D.James Kennedy
    When I entered Seminary I was given a Thompson Chain-Reference Bible. I soon learned that this study Bible was worth more to me than a pot of gold.
