As far as the translation and definitions(provided in brackets) and elucidations(also provided in brackets) go, this bible yearns to make things clear. For my tastes and level of education, this version really made things a lot clearer. I was told by my pastor to stick with the King James Version, and largely I do, but I keep this one on my kindle as a guilty pleasure.
And the price is great! I got my copy for 99 cents!
The AMP Bible is rather large (content-wise), so when I read in the description of this one, "Compact portable size", I decided to purchase it. I wanted a smaller version of what I have, to take with me to Bible studies, or church services. Unfortunately, this is actually larger and much thicker than what I have now. Before I sent it back, I checked it to see if it had more content than the one I have; maybe this explained why it was so much thicker.
What I found was this bible has 1701 total pages (with 192 of it in the Concordance), versus what I have now, which is 1898 total pages (with 192 in the Concordance, plus 178 paged Topical index, plus full color maps and ten blank pages to write notes on).
It must be the type of paper used to make this version of the Bible because Zondervan is the only publisher of the Amplified Bible, so there can't be any other reason for the difference.
Either way, if you are looking for a richer Bible experience, I highly recommend the Amplified Bible as an addition to your collection.
I especially like this edition because it has a hard cover, so it much more durable and will last for years and years. It has a font size that is comfortable to read (there is a paperback version of the Amplified Bible that has the tiniest print imaginable - avoid that one!). There is a nice section in the back that contains helpful maps and a word concordance. The binding is tight and durable. There is also a dedication page in the front, so this would make an excellent gift as well.
This is the best purchase of Biblical literature I have made this year.
If you love to read and study the Bible, you absolutely need this Amplified Bible. It will truly bless your life with deeper understanding of God's word.
