The Amplified Study Bible is unique in that it provides a way to study the nuances and meaning of words without having to learn the original languages. The Amplified translation was recently updated. The Amplified translation gives you study tools within the translation itself. It’s a literal translation that uses synonyms and definitions to explain or expand words in the text. In this review I take a look at the latest version of the Amplified Study Bible.

The Thompson Chain Reference system has been greatly improved in the ESV edition. The Thompson Chain Reference is one of the oldest study Bibles that’s still on the market today and now Kirkbride has released it in the popular ESV translation (2016 edition).

The purpose of this study Bible is to help Christians stay curious about God’s Word. How do we stay curious about the Bible? Why is this important? It’s important because there’s always more to learn about God’s Word. We can never...Read More
Holman has transitioned the HCSB to the newest version, called simply CSB, and now we can expect lots of new Bibles in this newest translation including this one: the Large Print Ultrathin Reference Bible. The LPUT is a staple format for Holman. It’s one they’ve perfected and I’ve reviewed several in other translations, but this one has one major difference from all the others: an edge-lined goatskin leather cover. Note – This was an advanced copy, so there could be some minor editorial changes since it went to print. ____________________________ Buy from Amazon ____________________________ Features CSB (Christian Standard Bible)...Read More
