The Thompson Chain Reference Story
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.
