    ....make sermons and study materials?

    Anybody here do that? If so, how? I'm intrigued.

    I used my Thompson Chain for that very purpose, but I have since gravitated to Logos. The Thompson Chain is very good at allowing you to follow themes or threads, but like any study Bible it takes on the interpretive flavor of the editor. While the Thompson Chain may help spark your creative juices, nothing replaces good solid exegesis.

    I occasionally use a Thompson Chain Reference to bring together some texts in my sermon and teaching prep. One of the things I like is to begin with a text or two and see where they make cross references. Though I don't always follow their recommendations, more times than not it brings me to a good reference I can use. :)
