The Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible allows you to choose what and how to study the Bible in ways that will best meet your own personal needs and interests. You will quickly feel at ease with the powerful Bible study tools unique to the Thompson Study System.

A. Keys for studying each Bible book. Key Verses and Key thoughts provide basic information you can use to develop your own study.

B. Chapter Analysis for every chapter of the Bible.

C. The Topical Guide Number allows you to identify and locate every verse in the Bible on more than 7,000 biblical topics. Use this number to find the first reference in the Bible for the topic you are studying.

D. Chain-Reference - his unique Thompson® feature points you directly to the next verse in the Bible for the topic you are studying.

E. Complete Verse Analysis shows the topics and themes of every verse of the Bible and provides easy reference to every other verse on the same theme or topic.

F. Parallel Passages (p.p) lists other Bible passages that cover the same topic.

Two important indexes provide immediate links and guides to every topic, theme, person, place and event wherever it is mentioned anywhere in Scripture.

Alphabetical Index (It may be called "General Index" in your particular Bible—depending on the actual edition you have purchased.)

  • Alphabetically lists every significant topic, theme, person, place, and event in the Bible

  • Includes items found in the maps, charts, databases, and special Thompson materials as well as the Bible text itself

  • Every listing includes the Topical Guide Number tied to the Numerical Index where you will find the complete listing for the topic, its contents, and all of its locations in the Bible.

Numerical Index (It may be called "Index to Chain Topics" or "The Condensed Cyclopedia of Topics and Texts" in your particular Bible—depending on the actual edition you have purchased.)

  • Numerically lists every topic, theme, person, place, or event in the Thompson Study System according to its Topical Guide Number.

  • Gives the first biblical reference in each Chain-Reference—so you can go to that reference and follow the topic step-by-step through the entire Bible.

  • Lists all verses on each topic so you can find a specific verse on the topic your are studying.

By using this exhaustive Index to find the specific areas you wish to study, you can develop your own study program and see how each related verse and its context add to your understanding and personal spiritual growth.

Comprehensive Informational Databases

Extensive helps. Aside from the incredible Thompson Chain-Reference System, the biggest thing that makes the Thompson stand out is its extensive helps section. Useful and practical tables, charts and illustrations, comprise over 75 features arranged in 10 departments. On-the-spot help for nearly any Bible study question you may encounter.

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, our 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 no other study Bible helps you go deeper into the Scriptures than a Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible.

Thompson Bibles include hundreds of pages of additional study tools, many of which are available in no other Bible. These 75 extra tools make your study easier and more enjoyable, sparing you from needing many other volumes.

Thousands of additional chain-references have been added over the decades. Study any Bible verse and you'll always know where to go next.

Here are some helps that are included:

Index of Chain Topics - Complete listing of over 7,000 marginal topics and reference chains. Most verses are printed out in the Index.
