Thompson Chain-Reference Bible Review
This Chain-Reference Bible uses the New King King James (NKJV) translation of the Bible.
I do not like the thin pages that you can see through the pages. When reading you can see the type on the other side.
Just glancing it’s hard to know and understand the side words and numbers, until I skimmed to the back and saw the references of the word and relating scripture references. Plus, if you read the front, it explains how to use it. If you just flipping through, you might not. It almost reminds of using like Strong’s reference.
I do like the larger print type, known as Comfort Print®. Which this Bible uses 9.5 pt. Thomas Nelson NKJV Typeface. It also uses two colors throughout the text of the Bible (red and black). The Red typeface was used as headlines, number reference points, and the Words of Jesus.
I do like the nice colorful maps at the back, which almost remind me of the Bible maps in a Bible I had growing up.
I do not like the slip jacket that is used and that the front cover is plain and nothing on it.
If you like bookmarking passages, this Bible does have two satin ribbons for bookmarking. It gives you a maroon and a gold ribbon.
This Bible I received was also a hard cover. It retails $54.99 US. ISBN 978-0-310-45940-8.
Interesting fact: This Bible was printed in South Korea.

Before each Book of the Bible:
Before each Book of the Bible, it has a good about that Book of the Bible which could include any, all or some of these points:
- Date Written
- To Whom Written
- Main Themes
- Key Words
- Key Verse
- Key Thought
- Notable Passages
- Prominent People
- Suggested Lessons
- Lessons of the Ages
- Major Chains
- And More
That means you’ll get to know more about all of the Books of the Bible. Which can help you study further. The back of the Bible shares it uses related scripture passages rather than consulting a commentary.
Overall, I did enjoy skimming over this Bible. It seems like a great way to study and learn. My only flaws with this Bible, as I mentioned, was the thin see through pages and the blank front and the slip jacket. But those two are just cosmetic.
