This is a nice Bible to compare with other Bible translations. By reading NASB and ESV along with Amplified you will have a clearer understanding of the text and the intent of the writer. I would also recommend "How to choose a translation for all its worth". There is so much that most people do not understand about the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic text of the original manuscripts and how it is translated into the receptor language (English). The how to book above is a good starting point for study. You will enjoy the Amplified Bible even more when you understand how they put it together in our English.

Disappointed - False Advertising

I was very pleased with the Bible itself, but the overview said that it had a concordance with 25,000 or more entries in it. That was very important to me, and when I downloaded it, the concordance was not there! It does NOT contain a concordance.

    Very Difficult Navigation

    I thought that at this price, navigation would work flawlessly. Unfortunately that was not the case. I suggest one of the lower priced Bible available compared to this as this was too expensive.

    Can't navigate.

    Not good for following along in a service. No contents page. Great translation just can't navigate to a particular verse.

    Not that great

    The attempt to "amplify" the bible has a very biased slant to it and I found it to be quite annoying in various places. It is very sluggish, taking up to ten seconds to go from one book to another And heaven help you if you want to look at a reference and then try to go back to where you were originally reading. In short I would recommend this only to people who have the patience of Job.

    Awesome and Easy to Understand

    I have always wanted to read the Bible more. But when I would read it, I just found myself getting frustrated because it was confusing to me. The Amplified Bible delivers God's message but it is so much easier to understand. I have this on my Nook so I can take it anywhere and read it anywhere.
