Amplified Bible is an English translation that attempts to clarify the meanings of words in original Biblical languages (Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic). It uses multiple English word equivalents to amplify meanings that may otherwise have been concealed by the traditional translation method. It is very convenient to use. Unfortunately, the "amplification" is unreliable, often exaggerating or distorting the nuances of the words in original languages. The readers are misled to believe that he/she has uncovered "hidden treasure" not seen in standard English translations(KJV, NASB, NIV, etc.). In fact, most popular-level word study references suffer from this weakness. If you are serious about word study, but have no working knowledge of original Biblical languages, you should consult more reliable references such as Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old & New Testament Words, Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible, Interlinear for the Rest of Us, and ESV English-Greek Reverse Interlinear.
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.
The reason I like AMP is because of the "amplification" that is in the text, not a commentary in footnotes (although at certain points footnotes are there to explain some more things, one thing that's not present in the Android or iOS app, but available in BibleGateway.com). But when it comes to reading it out loud, this isn't the right book, so the KJV text is always a help.
This book contains only the Parallel Bible, footnotes, and the concordance, oh and the beautiful red font for words of Christ. No maps or dictionary, but no worries for me. There is also paragraph break marks, and subhead titles like modern bible versions (and my Indonesian Bible), and the italicized words in italic of the KJV are present also.
I'm kinda concerned about the KJV text. At certain points it agrees with the 1873 Scrivener/Cambridge edition, but I found that Matthew 26:73, the KJV text reads "betrayeth" whereas both 1917 Oxford and 1873 Cambridge uses "bewrayeth" so I have no idea which edition of KJV that Zondervan uses. I don't know where else the differences might occur so I keep comparing with my old KJV book (my dad's actually, bought in 1990) to look for any.
But nevertheless, I'm still keeping this book because of the side-by-side feature.
