 I did a search and could not find it or any plans for it on logos site, but have I missed it??

I am considering doing a PB of

1908 Thompson Chain Reference Bible

Assuming Logos don't do a more up to date one - would there be any interest in having it, given that I understand it has had 4 revision since 1908, before I spend weeks/months on converting it and verifying it against my pdf copy,?

I would be looking at doing it a commentary, so links show next to verses, with dictionary part appended at end..

I am a big fan. It is a wonderful study bible.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I have a dead tree version that my mother gave me when I was a teen. It was the cat's meow back then. Over time it has become a very cherished paperweight. There are much better resources available now. (NTSK etc.) I can't imagine using The Thompson reference, even if I could buy it cheap in Logos.

The diagrams and drawings are great. I would like to see this available in Logos.

Well, I was a Thompson fan when I was in High School.  But that was about 45 years ago.

Thank God for it.  The Bible was a blessing to me in my early Christian walk, though I now think an inductive approach to Bible study is a bit more sound.

Of course, if you like topical chain links, it would be tough to beat.

I have often thought that a PB of the TCR Bible would be a great addition to Logos. I have it in another Bible Software Program AND I still use my TCR (paper edition) in church camp for quick references as I teach. "If you build it, they will com..." Stick out tongue

I preached my first sermon at the age of 17 and my pastor gave me a Thompson Chain Reference Bible as a gift. I used it for many years and was blessed to study from it. However, with the tools that are available in Logos, I haven't used my Thompson Chain Reference Bible in many years. When I need to look at topics I start with Naves or Macarthur. The search functionality and language resources in Logos are my "chain reference" now. That being said, if it did come out in Logos, I would likely buy it for nostalgia's sake if nothing else!

Thompson is a great favorite of mine, but I don't use it very much anymore. I've got more than one copy since I acquired them cheaply and I'm a pushover when I see a nice leather Bible especially a leather study Bible.

I'd be happy to have this in Logos and it's really a shame that they don't.

Long ago I graduated from Scofield to Thompson Chain Reference and after that Dake's and then the Open Bible.  Then there was the Serendipity Bible.  Each good in its own way.  I cut different teeth on each.    Would like to have them all.

If you can find one, Ephesians Four (E4) CD put out a Thompson Chain Reference Bible when they were still using Logos 2.0. Now they use Quick Verse.

I also got this resource for free from E4 few years ago. It is real sorry that E4 no longer supply Logos Resources.

Actually forgot about this CD, copied and pasted the resources this morning- found 4 that were not already in my library- check all your old cd's- today alone found 6 resources lost in cyber space- especially those purchased pre-2000.
