Grasp the full meaning behind the original Greek and Hebrew texts with the first-of-its-kind Amplified® Study Bible, featuring verse by verse study notes and the text of the newly revised Amplified translation.
The Amplified® translation was created to deliver enhanced understanding of the rich nuances and shades of meaning of the original Bible languages. For this kind of study, no working knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required—just a desire to know more about what God says in his Word. Now the updated Amplified translation is even easier to read and better than ever to study and understand. It includes more amplification in the Old Testament and refined amplification in the New Testament. Additionally, the Bible text has been improved to read smoothly with or without amplifications, so that the text may be read either way. It’s the same study material that Amplified readers love, now with even clearer wording for deeper understanding.

Expansive Bible study guide
I have long been aware of the print version of the Amplified Bible and admired its powerful descriptive qualities that illumine familiar verses, stories, and characters.
I decided to purchase it in eBook format for ease of use, quick lookup of many related passages while studying a Bible Lesson on specific topics (e.g., God, Love, God the only cause and creator, God the preserver of man, Doctrine of atonement).
Very pleased with Table of Contents listing links to take users directly to specific books and chapters.
Bonus: colored maps depicting the relevant sites of Abraham’s incredible journey of faith, the Exodus, the territories of each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, Jesus’ wide-ranging outreach, and Paul’s astonishing evangelical missions! And there’s more!
I highly recommend this tool for anyone wishing to stretch and grow their Bible study on a regular basis.
