  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    After looking at lots of different options in a study bible, I stumbled across this “build” of the Thompson-Chain and my search had come to an end. I have seen comments both ways regarding where and how well the printing is done; but the one I received had consistent dark print in both the red and black. Let it be known, this is a large bible. It’s like carrying around a ream of letter size paper – only a little thinner. No complaints here; the print is so clear and easy to read on such nice paper with a leather cover that is floppier than a hound dog’s ears. My family goes back 180 years in our church and nothing has felt any more “old school” and true to the craftsmanship of long ago than this copy of God’s Holy Word.

    I want this clear. My low review is not the craftsmanship of Church Bible Publishers. It is excellent. It is the sloppy printing by Kirkbride. I should have looked into this before ordering an $85.00 Bible from here. I assumed Church had their own printers printing this particular Bible. No, it’s blocks sent from Kirkbride. Those same sloppy creased, folded , dog eared pages. I’m disgusted at paying almost $100.00 for this. And I’ll not pay almost $20.00 to return it insured. I stopped counting at over 300 pages of light to severe creases. I have about eight pages were the crease runs from top to bottom. What is even more disgusting is that Kirkbride admitted to me in a phone call that they knew there is a problem I described yet they still roll them out anyway and some poor souls spending retail about $124.00. I would honestly go to your local Christian bookstore and look through a large print Thompson before ordering. I would think Church Publishers would not want this reflected on them. It does because many like myself thought they were also the printers. Sorry If I railed, but its just as outrageous for a Christian company (Kirkbride) to knowingly sell defective blocks and pass that on to us.

  3. Just read Michael Ray Butler post,
    I ordered the Midsize Center Column Reference Bible “Turquoise”
    and although (USPS) The tracking records showed that the package was delivered to the receiving address. I did not receive. then two days latter someone down the street took it to
    our house saying that USPS delivered wrong address.
    i guess i got lucky.
    the package was opened but was happy i got it

    I bought this Bible shortly after the New Year. It’s one of the best ever. I have different KJV Bibles, but this one for home study is just the best!! The only way to study God’s Word is through his Scripture and not a bias commentary that may lean towards a particular Denominational way of thinking. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not knocking any denomination, but Christ had 1 Church and it was built on his WORD. So how could you go wrong by purely studying it??? Praise the Lord!!

  5. Awesome bible. This Thompson chain reference bible is my daily reading bible. It is quality built book. I know the Thompson Chain-Reference block is from Kirkbride, the binding and leather cover is simply incredible. It’s a keeper!

  6. Well , here I am at 74 and think it is if not the best one of the best ever! Do not wait till your my age to enjoy this Beautifol Bible get now and grow old and learn of every little nuggets of gold and you will be happy you did. My husband gave me this wonderful bible for Christmas.Read and fall in love with Jesus over and over . The longer you will serve him the sweeter his word will become . Thank you James for my Bible best Christmas yet

    Simply an awesome bible. Has the same text block as the Kirkbride bibles but with a much better cover of amazing calfskin. It is also smyth sewn, so this one should last a lifetime! It is a large “desk” bible that would be difficult to carry but is perfect for home study. The print large and easy on the eyes. It has all the study helps of the Kirkbride Thompsons.

  9. Rated 1 out of 5

    Absolutely gorgeous bible. Extremely well made. Ironed calfskin is so soft and supple. Print is clear and clean. This bible will overwhelm you with its quality and will leave all other rivals in the dust! Plus, the TCR is a reference bible where Holy Scripture is revered. Great job CBP! FIVE stars all the way!

  10. I received my beautiful Bible Thursday I could not wait till Sunday Christmas to open it. The Bible is more than wonderful . So much information , to guide you in using it. Of course God Holy word is a joy to read I look forward to passing it down one day to one of my children. Hope they will do the same .

  11. very good, top quality bibles

    I ordered this Bible and never received it. They told me there was nothing they could do, and offered me $20 off the next order I may never receive. No thanks. You would expect better service than this. Order at your own risk.

    • We are sorry that our customer did not receive their package. Unfortunately, there is no insurance on Media Mail which eliminates the possibility of filing a claim with USPS. The tracking records shows that the package was delivered to the receiving address. We have done what we can to satisfy the customer. We offered a discount towards a future order as an olive branch in a matter that is out of our control once packages are shipped.

    Thanks Airik1111@youtube.com for posting your video about this Thompson Chain! This is my first KJV Holy Bible I’ve ever purchased.& first ever Thompson Chain. It is also the first time purchasing from CBP. This bible far exceeds my expectations! It is luxurious, premium, ironed calfskin leather. It is off the chart magnificent! The workmanship is top quality. I love to read it every day! The only thing missing is the gold trim gilding on the inside of the cover. This is my #1 source for bibles. King James forever!

    I recently purchased this TCR Bible to replace another that I’ve owned for close to 35 years. This is a really high quality Bible at a very affordable price. The service provided by CBP was just fantastic and the leather work is so beautifully done! Thank you so much!

    This is truly the best Thompson Chain reference I’ve come across and I have done extensive research.
    The quality is insurmountable.
    As far as customer service I couldn’t ask for nothing more.

    Oh! Wow! What a beauty!
    This bible exceeds my expectations. I already have a large print KJV Thompson but saw the reviews (thanks Airik your review was spot on) and decided to get this while I could. For the price point the quality is above and beyond. What more can I say but you have to expierence for yourself!!

  17. Mines will be in my hands Friday and I cannot wait PRAISE THE KINGBI thank our ABBA BELOVED FATHER for LEADINGB me to the right place to find HIS WORD, I never grew up in no church and never new anything about the bible I did have a prayer life tho and 2 YEARS after I had a visitation and radical encounter WITH THE ALMIGHTY INFINITE CHRIST JESUS OF NAZARETH I was then on a journey to find a bible by having the conversations I would have with people Wich they would say jay everything your saying is biblical and I kept hearing this biblical thing, I must be honest at 1st when I heard this I got offended because I thought that people thought what I was saying to them had came from some book or a man so me being very uneducated I started getting interested in the dictionary and I started looking up what words ment, so I looked up the word biblical and bam I said well I’ma go get me a bible so I went to a store that calls itself a CHRISTIAN FAMILY BOOK STORE I walk in the store and as I look at these walls I’m saying to myself ok there’s a whole bunch of books that are calling themselves holy bibles so then I was on a journey and went through seasons trien to find out Which book to get and at this time I was ignorant of the HOLY GHOST but through time WHICH I DIDN’T NO IT WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WAS LEADING ME SPIRITUALY GIVING ME UNDERSTANDING TO GET A KING JAMES BIBLE THEN I WAS ON A JOURNEY RESEARCHING AND INVESTIGATING THE KING JAMES BIBLE AND THEN coming to know that people have tried watering it down so IN TIME HOLY SPIRIT LED ME TO LOCAL CHURCH BIBLE PUBLISHER’S DENEAU FAMILY AND WHEN I READ THEIR TESTIMONEY AS WHY THE PRINT THE KING JAMES BIBLE I NEW RIGHT THERE AND I WAS IN COMPLETE TEARS BECAUSE I WENT A LONG TIME ON THIS SEARCH AND JOURNEY TO FIND A REAL HOLY BIBLE THAT I CAN COUNT ON, AND WHEN I RECEIVED MY 1ST BIBLE FROM CHURCH BIBLE PUBLISHER’S AS I OPENED THE BIBLE AND STARTED READING ALL I COULD DO IS CRY I’D BE SAD I’D BE HAPPY JOYFUL I WAS STILL IGNORANT OF THE HOLY GHOST AND I JUST KEPT BEING IN AWE AND BLOWN AWAY I JUST DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS GOING ON BECAUSE FROM THE TIME OF MY ENCOUNTER IN THE END OF 2012 IT HAS JUST BEEN SO NEW FULLY LOADED AND NOONE IN MY LIFE UNDERSTOOD WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME. SO I READ THE BIBLE AND I’M JUST BLOWN AWAY BECAUSE I’M LIKE WHO ARE THESE MEN AND WOMAN IN THIS BOOK I FELT AS IF THEY HAVE RAISED ME IN SOME PAST LIFE.

    BUT NOW I KNOW IT WAS NOT SOME PAST LIFE IT WAS THE HOLY GHOST THE 1 AND ONLY TRUE LIVING ALMIGHTY MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD IN THESE MEN AND WOMAN WRITTEN HIS TRUTH FOR US ALL TO READ AND BE LED TO HIM.

  18. BEAUTIFUL!….
    Wow this is a gorgeous bible and I’m giving it 5 stars only because the scale doesn’t go any higher. This calfskin is amazing, I put it in the category with Crossway and Holmans premium edition bibles. It has an excellent natural grain texture and this is hands down the most limp bible out of the box I’ve ever had. The text is a couple sizes larger than the average size Thompson Chain and an exact match to the layout page for page, the ink is the same as Kirkbrides edition. I can’t give this bible more props, if I had all thumbs it would be 10 thumbs up for overall construction & quality. If you have been considering getting a Thompson Chain DO NOT pass this one up, the price is amazing for such an awesome bible. CBP really made a good one here and I’m so happy to get a TC made by their family, my wife finally gets the original CBP style Thompson;) Look for a video review on my channel soon at Airik1111@YouTube.com

    Kevin said it well. So glad to own this large print, and wow the leather is so soft , and the Bible feels great in the hand. I have the LCBP , but the CBP version of the TCRB is what I’ve been waiting for. They knocked this one out of the park. God bless the Deneau family and those in the ministry with them in their calling.

    Many, myself included, have waited some time for Bible Publishers to bring back their edition of the Thompson Chain. It’s back and it’s big so finally the wait is over and this Bible was well worth it. You have what many believe to be the premier study Bible, the Thompson Chain Reference, in a CBP binding wrapped in soft and supple ironed calfskin. The text is large and crisp so that eyes of any age can read with ease. What more can I say than thank you CBP for bringing back this excellent edition of the TCR, and job well done.
