More About Zondervan Publishing
Zondervan is an American international Christian media and publishing company located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Zondervan is a founding member of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA).
Zondervan was founded in 1931 in Grandville, MI, a suburb of Grand Rapids, by brothers Peter ("P.J.", "Pat") and Bernard (Bernie) Zondervan, who were the nephews of publisher William B. Eerdmans. The company began in the Zondervans' farmhouse and originally dealt with selling remainders and publishing public domain works. The first book it published was Women of the Old Testament by Abraham Kuyper, in 1933.
Within a few years Zondervan developed titles of its own, and began publishing Bible editions. The Berkeley Version appeared in 1959, and the Amplified Bible in 1965. The NIV New Testament was published in partnership with the International Bible Society in 1973, and the complete NIV Bible appeared in 1978.
The company was bought by HarperCollins, a division of News Corp, in 1988, and is the company's principal Christian book publishing division.
Zondervan also publishes many other books by Christian authors focusing on topics of interest to Christians. In the 1970s it published The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey, which has sold more than 30 million copies. They are also known for the Bible storytelling books of Ethel Barrett, Joni by quadriplegic Joni Eareckson Tada, Baptist minister and author Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life, which has sold more than 35 million copies, Sacred Marriage, the modern marriage classic by Gary Thomas (author), and Rob Bell, author of Velvet Elvis and presenter of NOOMA.

Amplified Bible Mar 11, 2010
Excellent for researching the Word of God. The Bible says, "above all else, get understanding" and the Amplified provides deeper insight into the Word. Prepare to go into deeper depths and higher heights as you use this to study and understand God's word!
Good Purchase Jul 18, 2009
The book was delivered in a timely manner. It wasn't exactly what we expected - but we were pleasantly surprised at how read-able it is and are very glad to have it in our home. Just wish this version as well as many others would stop referring to the leviathan and behemoth as a crocodile and a hippopotamus/elephant ... try dinosaur!
Amplified Topical Reference Bible, Leather Mar 30, 2009
Very nice Bible with concordance, topical index and maps. Leather cover and gilt edged pages have nice appearance. Bible lays open for study. Text in Topical Reference section somewhat small and light.
Amplified Bible phrasings include alternate word translations within the text where other translations may show them as references or notes. See other reviews for more detailed description of Amplified Bible translation.
Awesome Bible! Feb 10, 2009
The Amplified Topical Reference bible is really all you need for a simple and in depth exhaustive search of many, if not all, topics. I purchased this bible, and it's the one I mainly use because apart from it being Amplified, which gives more insight to meanings right within the verses themselves, it has maps at the end, along with an extensive concordance, and a reference section organized by topics. It's like having Strongs Concordance at the end. It really helps me a lot when I'm studying or preparing a preaching. REALLY GOOD PURCHASE!! I RECOMMEND IT 100%!!
Quality Bible Oct 25, 2008
Well made hard back Bible. The amplification gives in depth understanding to the Scripture. Better for study than general reading.
