5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Second Bible Jan. 8 2002
Format:Hardcover
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Average Product By Today's "Standards" July 25 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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. One more thing. I noticed it was printed and bound in China. Why? If a Chinese person tried walking into a store, trying to buy this Bible, he or she could quite conceivably be thrown into jail. The hypocrisy of having a Bible made in communist China is a blaring contradiction. In case the publishers, (in this case Zondervan) have failed to realize, there are millions of Americans and Canadians out of work because "their" governments have not protected them from predatory sweat-shops in China. Zondervan, by their action of having work done in China, implies tacit support of this system of modern-day slavery. In case Zondervan hasn't heard, I-phone manufacturing employees in China have allegedly been committing suicide due to unbearable working conditions. Just "Google" the articles involving this subject. The summation is: order your books from an independent book store that can verify the source, and who believes in the doctrines and tenets of Scripture enough to obey them.

By K. Lynn
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
LOVE this Bible! Love the large print too. Its easy to read (even for children), true to the original language of the scriptures, and such an amazing aid for mediation and prayer. I've lost count of how many of these Bibles I have bought as gifts (plus worn out quite a few myself!). My favorite every day read!!

The Amplified uses several adjectives when describing scripture. It helps new Christians understand what God is telling them. Great buy!
