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.

    Not that useful

    I love the Amplified, but this version is just not that useful, especially since the "content slider" at the bottom always says: "Revelation" so you can't quickly tell where you are going to land in the contents. Not one you should take to Bible class.

    It's little more than a rough copy that's hard to navigate...needs work!
