5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Second Bible Jan. 8 2002
When reading the Bible in different translations readers are often struck by the different words used by different translations. That is even between two Literal (word-for-word) translations (like the King James and the NRSV). When you get into a Dynamic Equivalence translation (like NIV) or a Free translation (like Phillips) you can be astounded, and wonder if the translators were using the same source material. Idealy, students of the Bible should be able to read it in the orginal Hebrew, Aramaic, and koine Greek. But that's an ideal the vast majority of us will never be able to meet. Enter the Amplified Bible. The purpose of the AB is to give English readers a better feel for the original material by amplifying the translation.
The AB starts with an excellent Literal translation and then uses brackets and parentheses to amplify any word that doesn't have a literal English equivalent. Brackets []contain clarifying words or comments not in the original. Parentheses () include additional meanings to the original word that the English word doesn't, for example the Greek work transliterated as pisteuo, is usually translated as 'believes', but in the orginal actually means much more. See my example from John in the next paragraph.
John 11:25- "Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live."
Why do I title this "Outstanding Second Bible"? I find that for my first read thru on any section, I prefer to use a good study Bible, as the amplified material interrupts the flow of the narrative. Especially for those new to Bible study, the amplifications can be confusing.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the top 2 or 3 of English versions Feb. 25 2002
By mtk5150
Format:Leather Bound
Personally, I place the AB at #2 under my absolute favorite, the New King James Version (the KJV being 3, of course). When I look at my shelves of literally dozens of versions, I realize all I ever use or need are these three, with the AB being an indespensible secondary Bible and Bible reference tool. It truly does, "unlock hidden shades of meaning," as my copy says on its cover. Every Bible reader that desires to go deeper into understanding the Bible needs a copy in their arsenal, without question.

An example: (okay, my favorite passage)
"I have overcome the world." (Jesus Christ) The Amplified Bible translates this: "I have deprived the world of the power to harm you."
The Amplified Bible is my favorite Bible translation. I was impressed with the fact that this Bible goes back to the original Hebrew and Greek translations instead of retranslating the translations.
The 23rd Psalm, the 91st Psalm - all the favorites take on powerful new meanings with a reading of this Bible.
I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone who loves to dig deep into the spiritual meaning and practicality of God's word.
I recently pulled out my leather copy of this AB (I have both the hardcover and leather editions) and I noticed I'd filled the flyleafs with my "favorite" Bible passages. That's how this book is - you read a verse and say " that's what that verse means..I never thought of it in that light" and then you have to think about it for a time and let it sink in deep. It's a book (and a message) that will really satisfy the hungry heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historical perspective on this translation Jan. 4 2000
Format:Leather Bound
Francis Siewart was the primary translator of the Greek and Hebrew scriptures that make up this volume. Throughout most of the time she spent on this task, she suffered from cancer and, over a period of twenty years, had approximately twent-five surgeries on this cancer.
Ms.Siewart first translated the New Testament. She was not expected to complete this due to her illness. However, as a testament to her faith and the power of faith, she not only finished the New Testament, she went on to complete the translation of the Old Testament in two parts before she passed away.
I am not a deeply religious person myself, but her work is a strong argument for the power of faith.
I met her on a few occasions during the time she was doing this work. She had been like an aunt to my mother and father and they called her "Aunt Francis" even though there was no real family relationship--only love and friendship.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Version of the Bible May 11 2000
Format:Leather Bound
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew ... the New Testament was written in Greek ... Jesus generally spoke in Aramaic ...
The only way to procure an accurate understanding of the Holy Scriptures would be for you to become a master of, at least, these three languages ... or ... you could get a copy of the Amplified Bible, where all that has been taken care of.
The Amplified Bible expounds on the meanings of various words with brakets [] that offer insights into what is being conveyed. These words in brakets become wonderful fodder for meditation!
If you want to understand God's word, as it was originally intended, you can't do any better than this.
Verily, I'm a musician ... I like things that are amplified. 8o)

I like the fact that its a hardback book, but hardbacks demand better binding. The binding is too chintzy for a volume this size; its a Bible, not an advertising flyer. Read more
