Excellent study resource

I inherited this version from my Grandmother. I know that the Bible is just one point of view. It is not all bad. When the church uses it to control you it is bad. Sorry. Just my opinion. ( )

A useful tool for comparative study, no doubt. Still, there is the bent on translating original language terms so as to not upset traditional doctrine(s), rather than "amplifying" the fullest use of the word (appropriate to context). Having read the introduction I am convinced that in all sincerity this translation was conceived as an act of faith to promote Bible reading and comprehension. ( )

a good "go to" bible, more than just a read threw like the NIV, but with actual and correct words that can correspond right back to the greek and hebrew. which helped (me at least) get an Ideal of what was originally written (unlike the JKV which i grew up with and now can not stand) ( )

beautiful bible, March 17, 2007 By William Ekhardt (Gamaliel, KY)

If you don't already know the Amplified Bible expands on regular English translations, by giving the full meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words from the original text. It's a great study tool, and helps the reader to better understand the exact meaning of the text. ( )
