The Thompson® Chain-Reference® Study Bible is designed for devotional reading, group study, individual prayer, preparation of Sunday School materials, Pastoral study and preaching, and for Bible students of all ages. With over 100,000 references connected directly or indirectly through the Thompson Study System, this Bible is the most unique and complete topical study system available. Its practicality and ease of use make it the most complete one-volume Biblical tool available.
A Thompson® is considered by some to be the only true "Influence-Free" Study Bible. This is the one very important difference between a Thompson® and most other study Bibles. Most study Bibles fill their margins with another person's commentary. These are notes from a knowledgeable author who tries to explain the text to you. Commentaries can be useful, but every author has his or her own view and biased agenda. Commentaries offer wide and often opposing influence. The Thompson® Bible is "influence-free," because instead of commentary, the margins are filled with thousands of chain-references® that propel you ahead into Scripture. Scholars agree that the Bible is its own best commentary, and the Thompson® Chain-Reference® Study Bible is built on this premise.
