I love the idea of parallel Bibles, especially when I saw the KJV and the Amplified, my two favorite translations together.

I orderd the "Large Print" version, but was shocked that it is the same size print as my other regular print Bibles. It is not large at all - in fact the print is tiny, and it is light grey, not black. I have a large-print Amplified Bible that is really large print and easy to read.

I rechecked, and the Bible does say "Large Print" on the cover and on the inside, so unless this Bible is defective, what they call the "Large Print" version is not really large print at all. I thought that this might be useful for people to know.

THIS BIBLE IS AWESOME. YOU HAVE BOTH THE KING JAMES VERSION AND THE AMPLIFIED VERISION SIDE BY SIDE. AT MY CHURCH, MY PASTOR READS MOST OF THE VERSES IN THE KING JAMES. BUT, WHEN HE SAYS TO LOOK AT THE AMPLIFIED FOR MORE DETAIL AND I CAN. THEN I HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING THIS IN LARGE PRINT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

As a minister/teacher, I have found this bible to be critical for teaching and learning. My Pastor, often times will have me read somehing from the amplified for clarity. It's as close to the Hebrew/Greek you can get. I line it up to my hebrew/Greek bibles and the words are 90% accurate. They also line up with the Strongs if you decide to search that deeply.

I love the Bible. I love reading the Bible. It is always completely relevant and each time I read it through I see things I never saw before. I love the King James Version because I was brought up on it and it is so familiar to me. I love the Amplified because it brings to the meanings of so many loved passages a clarity and depth I never got before I read them in the Amplified. This is my favorite combination of Scripture readings. I love the large print. As I get older I appreciate that more and more.

Not only do I find the parallel versions of the bible truly a blessing in understanding the scriptures, but for me, the parallel KJV and AMP version was a great decision! I was always taught from the KJV version growing up, when going to church or participating in bible studies. Sometimes I seemed to have a hard time getting a deeper understanding of some of the words. And, recently I've been learning a lot from Joyce Meyer, and I find that she uses a lot of the Amplified version in her teaching and explanation of the bible. What a blessing to find a 2-in-1 bible with side-by-side scripture comparison, and I can read from one version and refer back to the other right on the same page! It's amazing to think that I can hold on to the part of my chilhood when KJV was so familiar to me, and to have a deeper explanation and easy-to-read version. I'm so thankful that I was able to find a bible that my husband and I could read that would help us both get that deep, meaningful understanding that makes reading the bible so eye-opening for us!

I love this Bible. I enjoy being able to go from KJV to Amplified and to compare the two without needing two different books

The only thing I found lacking from this Bible were the initial introductions to each book that the Amplified version provides. Beyond that, it is all-encompassing (to include all Amplified notes). I highly recommend this Bible because it allows in-depth scriptural study, as well as immediate comparison and availability of both translations.

I love the Amplified Parallel Bible. Now I only have to carry one Bible instead of two. At my church we use both the KJV and the Amplified. I would like the print to be larger. I am a Senior and it is not easy for me to read small print. I thought the print would be larger.
