Summary

“Break Through the Language Barrier, Expand Your Understanding”

The Amplified Bible is a Literal Equivalent translation that, by using synonyms and definitions, both explains and expands the meaning of words in the text. This unique system of translation allows the reader to more completely and clearly grasp the meaning as it was understood in the original Hebrew and Greek languages.

For example, the Greek word pisteuo, which the vast majority of versions render as “believe.” That simple translation, however, hardly does justice to the many meanings contained in the Greek pisteuo: “to adhere to, cleave to; to trust to have faith in; to rely on, to depend on.”

Disappointed

This is not the most accessible translation of the Bible. You kind of feel like you are listening to a thesaurus of ancient times rather than one of the most important books of human history. I couldn't get on with the narrator either, he read too quickly and too mechanically for me to gain anything. So, as I said, I'm just disappointed.

The WORD amplified. A great Bible translation.

Really helps as you have the full meaning of the words rather than the limited English translations.

Beautiful and most meaningful

The Amplified version is the best version for grasping the meaning of Scripture. It expounds on the meaning of the translation of the Hebrew and Greek.

No Chapter Headings - Can be frustrating

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

You cannot navigate to a Chapter or Verse in this bible, you have to guess in which section it might be. This can be very frustrating.

CHAPTERS

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Bible book names are not listed so you can choose where to play. Am using Alexa to listen so needed to know how many chapters are in the entire BIBLE! Once you find the divisions, it is great to listen to this version. Anyone else have a better way to know where the various books begin and end?

Was Amplified Bible: Complete Old & New Testament worth the listening time?

Always! You learn better when you use the extra sensory feature of sound as well as sight.

A few strange interpretations here!

This is a Bible for use by a mature Christian, certainly not recommended for a new Christian like you would think. Sometimes the "amplifications" are so wrong I just wanted to close this and never open it again. I believe any true student of the Bible will find many errors. I cannot recommend this book.

Why no book titles?

Very disturbing that it's only listed by chapters and not the books of the Bible. It's very confusing and doesn't make sense. Other than that it's great

Upgrade, to stop the guessing of chapter versus etc.........

I enjoyed that there is a audio version I'm frustrated that with guesting part what chapter versus etc. To me that needs a total upgrade period. I would have given higher Mark if I didn't have to guess.

No chapter headings

It's too bad that there are no headings in the written chapters section. It'd be easier to find your location when searching for a particular verse

doesn't work

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I bought this bible 6/16/17 and i can't download to get it to work all it tells me is it buffing,,,and this can go one for 2hrs and more...i have bad luck getting audible....

What was most disappointing about PFL’s story?

I haven't been able to listen to it

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven B. Stevens?

don't have a clue...still can't access it to listen to it

Any additional comments?

the download doesn't work for me...so i don't have a clue, exception to get my money back and just buy a bible and read it...
