Product Description

Imagine if the President of the United States outlawed your version of the Bible because he considered it to be a threat to his rule. Imagine that he authorized a new Government "approved" version for you to read instead. That's exactly what happened in the tumultuous year of 1611. King James despised the revolutionary and "seditious" Geneva Bible. He thought the Geneva Bible's study notes on key political texts threatened his authority, so he outlawed it and ordered a new translation of the Bible - the King James (Authorized Version). While the King James Version is an excellent translation, it was edited and authorized by the Government. The Geneva Bible was not. It was truly a Bible by the people and for the people. 
The Geneva Bible is unique among all other Bibles. It was the first Bible to use chapters and numbered verses and became the most popular version of its time because of the extensive study notes. These notes were included to explain and interpret the Scriptures for the common people and laid the foundation for a Republican form of government. For nearly half a century these notes helped the people of England, Scotland, and Ireland understand the Bible and true God-ordained liberty.
When the Pilgrims arrived in America in 1620, they brought the 1599 Geneva Bible. You can see why this remarkable version with its profound study notes played a key role in the formation of the American Republic. Today, the 1599 Geneva Bible has been all but forgotten. Thankfully, we've brought it back into print in a beautiful, easy-to-read format with updated English spelling and punctuation. This remarkable Bible is available in leather or hardback binding.

  1. Very different than the KJ version.

    Posted by Terry on 27th Apr 2014

    I have found quite a few differences between the Geneva Bible and KJ. I'm loving my new version of G-D's word! I love so much I ordered two more for my children. I highly recommend getting them while they are available!

  2. Hard for an 80 year old to read

    Posted by Ron F. on 15th Mar 2014

    Love this Bible, but the print is a little too small for me. Not disappointed with the purchase for the price, but probably wouldn't have gotten it if I had seen it beforehand. I'll try to find one with larger print & save this one for someone else.

  3. Excellent Bible

    Posted by BDR on 13th Mar 2014

    Excellent Bible in all ways. Would be nice if font size was larger, but I am sure this would make overall size of Bible larger as well. In any event, great value and I would highly recommend.

  4. Wonderful access to historic insights

    Posted by AG on 19th Feb 2014

    This Bible with its extensive notes from the Reformation era is a treasure trove.

  5. Needs larger print and darker ink.

    Posted by Jerry on 19th Feb 2014

    The font size was too small. It was probably the combination of the font size and poor ink quality. I would rather pay more for improving in these areas. I will just stick to my large print KJV until they come out with a better quality production of the 1599 Geneva.

  6. I love this Bible

    Posted by Kathleen Dryden on 5th Feb 2014

    I am very pleased with my new Geneva Bible. I have not had the time to spend with it fully but what I have had, has proven satisfactory to me. I would have loved to have more of a Study Reference for the scriptures, though. I particularly appreciate the color of the pages...easy on the eyes. I can read longer without eye strain. And I love the paper used for the pages. It is much more stable and easier to turn than my other Bible's pages.
    Over all, I am very pleased. KD

  7. Wonderful addition to my morning

    Posted by Todd M on 20th Jan 2014

    It is a wonderful addition to my morning bible study time. The commentaries are insightful but also short and to the point. There is a very helpful glossary in the back which lists some of the more uncommon words along with a definition, and a sample location where it can be found.

  8. 1599 Geneva Bible ....not so different....in a good way

    Posted by Angel Smith on 19th Jan 2014

    I was born and raise KJV only. It was hard for me to start using other translations but I gradually started testing them out. I really like the ESV but the KJV was still my favorite until I read that it was the government approved Bible of it's time. Ugg! So when I learned that the 1599 Geneva Bible was THE Bible before the government (King James) authorized a version I was intrigued but I was afraid it would be difficult to read and just to foreign to me. Not so! It is a lovely Bible and very close to the KJV that I grew up on. It has great notes too. My husband likes it so well, he has pretty much taken it over.

  9. Treasured tranlation everyone should have!

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Jan 2014

    Bible is well done and one we will use for study a lot. The CD Rom is so interesting and such a valuable study tool.

  10. Great translation- too small font

    Posted by Steve on 8th Jan 2014

    Was excited to get this. Its early Modern English seems a bit more current than the KJV- and posses no problem in understanding despite a few unusual words. Some reviewers call this a 9 pt font. I'm not sure it's that large. I can read Excel printouts in 9 pt, the newspaper, and my magazines without glasses, but I can't read this without glasses. My regular KVJ bible is 11 pt font and I never think to put on my glasses. My mother's large print is 12 pt. If you have middle aged eyes wait for the "large print" version and hope they disclose the font size!
