All of the repetitious footnotes in the New Testament referring to the various lexicons are gone. The footnotes are much more meaningful and helpful, as well as more plentiful in the Old Testament. The English has been updated so that it really comes very close to being an update to the updated New American Standard Bible; not surprising since the sponsor of both the NASB and the new 2015 AMP is the Lockman Foundation. The preface explains that the underlying basic translation is a “literal equivalent” of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek text. From my evaluation thus far I believe that is an accurate statement.
As a pastor I never felt completely comfortable recommending the previous Amplified Bible because of the smorgasbord approach. I felt that it took too much time to explain the whys and wherefores behind the amplifications for the average reader. I have no such hesitation with this new addition, and wholeheartedly recommend it.
This is a hefty Bible. Coming in at 2.8 pounds, this isn't a lightweight. At 6.5" x 9.5", it is just smaller than standard paper at 8.5 x 11". It is almost 2 inches thick. With small hands, it takes a bit to maneuver this around. I do better using it on my lap/laptable, laying it out flat, which it does nicely. Open it up to the Book of Genesis 1:1, and it will lay flat without having to hold it open. This makes it a great resource for Bible study, since you can leave it open to any page and it will stay there!
My only complaint is the thinness of the paper. It is almost see-through. You can see the print on the back side, but to me it does not interfere with the reading. I understand why they need the paper so thin. If the paper were any thicker, this thing would weigh over 3 pounds, if you could put both the Old and New Testament in one volume! The thin paper makes it hard to add notes/highlights/etc. without affecting the other side of the paper. I keep my notes to pencil only, and not a sharp point!
