, (December 19, 1889 – April 14, 1966), born in Corstorphine, Scotland, was a religious writer involved in the work of the Concordant Publishing Concern (CPC), publishers of the Concordant Literal Version
of the Bible.
Thomson was credited for corrections included in the 1944 revision of the Concordant Version
. Commentary by Thomson was published in the Concordant Publishing Concern's bimonthly magazine Unsearchable Riches
. Later, from about 1950 until soon before his death, Thomson was an editor and contributor for the periodical The Differentiator
, which reviewed and commented upon Bible translation work.
Ernest Oliver Knoch, son of CPC founder Adolph Ernst Knoch and former editor of Unsearchable Riches
, wrote of Thomson:
Thompson's [sic] untiring and unselfish labors were invaluable in the compilation of the Concordant Version, and they have left an undying impression on the accuracy and value of that work. [...Thomson and A. E. Knoch] were singularly alike in their unflinching stand for the truth as they saw it, and in their untiring effort to ferret it out from the Word of God. Both were unselfishly devoted to ... the compilation of the Concordant Version.
Thomson's critics claim he had no formal credentials, such as a degree in biblical studies, theology, or ancient languages.
