Different from Other Study Bibles

A Thompson is 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. Your 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.
