Product description

From the Back Cover

When Your Knowledge of the Original Languages of the Bible Is Limited-and You Don't Want to Lose Anything in the Translation

If you want to get all the rich nuances and shades of meaning of the original Bible languages, the Amplified Bible is for you. No knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required-just a desire to know all that God says in his Word.
With its unique system of brackets, parentheses and italics, the Amplified Bible defines and expands key words and phrases right in the text. Verse by verse, the full meaning of Scripture unfolds as you read. And this Bible features other study aids as well to help you clearly understand God’s Word:
• Footnotes-provide concise historical and archaeological information and devotional insights, plus hundreds of references to select sources and authors.
• Book Introductions-tell you about the book’s author, background, purpose, and themes.
• Concordance-helps you find the location of verses (25,000 entries).
• Bibliography and Glossary-give you a handy list of the sources cited in the study notes and the most frequent amplifications in the text.

An excellent version of The Bible. It clarifies passages which other versions leave unclear. Highly recommended.

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?

I love this bible translation but the text to speech does not work on all the text. I bought this on kindle, text to speech enabled, so that I can listen to this Bible as I am partially sighted. so the end result is that I can only access part of this Bible!!!
I would like this to be resolved.

The bible I received wasn’t the one I was expecting so I returned it, very disappointed as it arrived quickly and was well packaged.
