When Your Knowledge of the Original Languages of the Bible Is Limited and You Don't Want to Lose Anything in the Translation
If you want to get all the rich nuances and shades of meaning of the original Bible languages, the Amplified Bible is for you. No knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required-just a desire to know all that God says in his Word.
With its unique system of brackets, parentheses and italics, the Amplified Bible defines and expands key words and phrases right in the text. Verse by verse, the full meaning
of Scripture unfolds as you read. And this Bible features other study aids as well to help you clearly understand God's Word:
- Large Print-makes reading easy.
- Footnotes-provide concise historical and archaeological information and devotional insights, plus hundreds of references to select sources and authors.
- Book Introductions-tell you about the book's author, background, purpose, and themes.
- Bibliography and Glossary-give you a handy list of the sources cited in the study notes and the most frequent amplifications in the text.

For example here is the famous verse John 3:16 from the Amplified to illustrate how much more clearly it makes the Bible to understand:
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world, that He (even) gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies upon) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life
I highly commend this invaluable reference work to anyone who wants to understand the Bible better.

What I like about the amplified bible, is what it provides as a tool to better understanding Gods word. The sub text that supplies additional info is great and REALLY helpful. References to supportive scripture are provided to accompany you as you read. There is NO WAY to get lost in the text ( I mean as far as understanding) but I've been lost MANY times in enjoyment.
I traditionally read NIV, but I find the text in the Amplified Bible easier to follow. It provides plenty of insight, and I simply devour the word page by page, with an unexpected vigor.
I didn;t listen to the reviewers that rank this so low. I recommend going to your local Christian book store and take a look at this edition before buying. I bought mine on Amazon, and its a cornerstone of my bible study! I recommend it.
Amazon is where I go to first when searching for various needs.
