How To Use A Thompson Study Bible
I am frequently contacted by people who are asking for information and help in learning how to use a Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible. These are people who either have owned a Thompson Bible and never learned how to use it or those who have recently purchased a Thompson Bible and haven’t figured out how to use it in their personal study of the Scriptures. They know by looking at all of the study material that it is a Bible that could help them in their study but just can’t quite figure out how to use it effectively.
APT Ministries Can Help
APT Ministries now offers a 4 hour Thompson Bible “Mini-Workshop” that we conduct in the U.S. for those interested in learning how to study the Scriptures using a Thompson Bible. This workshop is about the effective study of God’s Word using the Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible. The Thompson Bible has been used worldwide for more than 100 years. This four-hour training is part of an extended training (2 ½ days) for pastors and church leaders called the “Thompson Bible International Institute” that APT Ministries teaches to pastors and leaders in Africa. Since its inception, the TBII has provided training for over 110,000 pastors and church leaders in Latin America, the Philippines, India, and Africa.
The Thompson Bible As a Study Tool
The Thompson Bible uses a study system that brings you into a deeper understanding of God’s Word by leading you through a chain of key scripture references that relate to the subject or passage that you are studying. The Thompson Bible gives you study helps for over 4200 topics in the Bible, as well as over 600 pages of additional reference material to aid your study.
In the workshop each person:
- Will learn how to use the Thompson Bible to study any topic or passage of the Bible
- Will practice basic Bible study methods and principles to use in their study of the Scriptures
