The A. W. Tozer Bible from Hendrickson Publishers is a study/devotional Bible with writings from one of the 20th century’s most beloved Christian authors. A. W. Tozer was a Pastor, Preacher, Teacher, and Student who wrote many books in his 40-year ministry. This Bible includes over 500 selections from his writings. Here’s a look at some of the key features: Brief biography of A. W. Tozer Epistle Dedicatory (dedication to King James) Over 500 Tozer selections King James Version Book introductions Textual Headings Words of Christ in red Outer side-column references 145 page Concordance 8 pages of Maps 9.50 x 6.25″ x 1.75″ Text The font looks to be a more modern digital font. I’m not sure of the font’s size, but it looks close to 9-point. It has extra leading between the lines, giving plenty of room to underline. There are no footnotes indicators in the text itself. This makes the text very clean and readable. One of my favorite features is the text layout. Poetry is set in verse format which is offset from the regular text. I like the way this looks. It helps not only to identify the genre of Scripture, but also makes the text more readable. The reference of the first verse that appears on the page is printed at the top of each page. Paragraph markers continue throughout the New Testament. Headings...Read More
The Thompson Chain Reference Bible has been around for over 100 years. There’s a reason that it’s been around that long. The Thompson could be considered a study Bible, a topical Bible, or a reference Bible. I think it is most accurately called a topical reference Bible. To be considered a study Bible, most users would expect it to have commentary. I think that is more accurately called a commentary Bible. I think a better study Bible would be a Bible that gives you the tools you need to study the Scriptures for yourself. With this in mind, the Thompson Chain Reference Bible makes a great study Bible. Rather than giving commentary, it compares Scripture with Scripture, allowing the Bible to be its own commentary. The Thompson is called ‘influence free’ based on this assessment. However, this is not exactly accurate. The topics themselves are influenced by Charles Thompson’s theology, as well as marginal headings, chapter summaries, and outlines of each book. In most cases, I don’t have any issues with these choices. The Thompson has many features that I like in a study Bible: Chain references Topical index Better than average concordance Chapter summaries Page summaries Book outlines Character studies Archaeological encyclopedia Red letter Italics for added words Self-pronouncing text Marginal headings (rather than in-text headings) Links to parallel passages Translation notes Sewn binding Blank pages for writing...Read More
