Format:Paperback
If you enjoy "feasting" on the Word of God, you will never be hungry again! This is absolutely the richest, deepest and fullest translation you will ever read. Reading the Amplified Bible is like reading the KJV, NKJV, NAS, NIV, TLB, RSV, Phillips and a commentary at the same time. Observe: "Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather, but his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord...(Psalm 1:1). I'll never read another translation!

I love the Amplified Version,and have found the precision of the translation really useful. However, this version has very small print and the size - somewhere between A5 and A6 - makes it awkward to read. Pity, especially as it comes at such a good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amplify your understanding of God's Word 22 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't use this as my main translation but for a single, easy to carry item I have yet to find something that can beat the Amplified Bible for unlocking the meaning of certain words and thus the meaning of the scriptures themselves. You shouldn't use just one bible or one book but if you have space or money only for one it should probably be this one.

As a pocket (if you have quite a big pocket) size bible it of course has some disadvantages but those disadvantages will be found in most, if not all, pocket bibles.

5.0 out of 5 stars gave me understanding and clarity 20 Jan 2004
Format:Leather Bound
Considered by many as one of the most literal translations available, the Amplified Bible adds meaning and understanding for the reader by using contemporary language, and by giving the text its fullest meaning with added words (in brackets and parentheses) for clarification.
Some consider it fragmented in style, but once one gets into the flow of it, it is easier reading and very enlightening.
After many years of reading the KJV, I purchased the Amplified in 1999, and was astounded by how it made already familiar texts come to life. I am presently almost at the end of my second cover-to-cover reading, and love this translation more than ever.
The heart and soul of this translation was the dedication and scholarship of Dr. Frances Siewert (1881-1967), a remarkable woman whose passion for the scriptures and knowledge of languages, along with the commitment of the Lockman Foundation and Zondervan Publishing House, gave us this marvelous translation, first published in one volume in 1965.
Among the many sources used were Rudolph Kittel's Biblia Hebraica, Wescott and Hort's Greek Text, the 23rd Edition of Nestle Greek New Testament, and Greek and Hebrew lexicons.
Each book has an introduction that I find extremely useful; it gives historical perspective, insights into the authorship, and more.
The back of the volume contains a fairly extensive concordance, several maps, and the leatherbound and hardback editions have a print size that is kind to the eyes.
For those like me who are "non-academic", but want to understand and learn from the scriptures as much as we are capable of, I highly recommend reading this translation, at least once in a lifetime.
Psalm 46:1
Amplified: "God is our Refuge and Strength (mighty and impenetrable to temptation), a very present and well-proved help in trouble".
KJV: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Amplified Bible Compact Camel Burgundy 7 Sep 2011
Format:Leather Bound
I have been waiting for a compact version of the Amplified Bible to come out for years. Years of carrying the hardcover version in my bag have now drawn to a close! The leatherbound cover is lovely, the font is just right and for 13.80 you can't go wrong. There are many versions of the Bible but the AMP is the one for me. It's deep, rich and expressive and now God has answered my prayer for a compact version that I can carry around with me everywhere. To God be the glory.
We need the Word of God inside us to build us up, God will only witness to himself so we need to give the Holy Spirit something to work with - the Word, Jesus Christ himself. Find a version of the Bible that appeals to you, pray and ask the Lord to enlighten you and give you understanding and then read. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God's truth to you so that you may adhere to it and apply it.
If you're feeling dry, ask God to give you a desire, a passion to read His Word, to meditate on His Word, to love His Word...Jesus said that if you do not have, it is because you havent asked. So ask and keep asking...
Knowing the Word isn't enough to get us into Heaven, having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, knowing Him intimately is what will lead to eternal life....
Do you know Jesus?

5.0 out of 5 stars The full picture bible 9 Sep 2009
By nicci D
Format:Paperback
I have read a few different translations of the bible,( king james, the message, Touchpoint bible) but nothing has ever matched up to the Amplified bible. It has opened my mind in a totally different way giving me a broader prospective onto the scene of what was happening the Gospals & the old Testiment. Because of the language and the explanations given i am not left with questions marks??? on what i feel the bible is saying to me. The word is taken from the original hebrew meaning which in most bibles the words they used to translate are not exactly accurate. If you want to read your Bible with passion again, well this translation is definitely for you. For the first time ever! i am finding it hard to put down.
