Kirkbride Thompson Chain-Reference Bible from Kirkbride
The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible is a great study system for every Bible Study need. The Thompson Chain-Reference Bible offers all the tools necessary for fully self-directed study. It provides verse-by-verse access to all the themes and topics of the Bible - allowing you to choose, discover, and develop Scriptural principles that apply directly to your own life or ministry situation. And, best of all, there is no commentary, no denominational bias, and no personal opinion found in a Thompson Chain-Reference Bible. It allows the Scripture to interpret itself by chaining you from verse to verse on a particular topic. This is a pure and genuine study of God's Word - free from outside influence.
