|50% OFF the Bible that Built America - 72 Hours Left!|
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.
For the next 72 hours, you can get a copy of this historic Bible in a exquisite leather binding for only $29.95... That's 50% off the retail price! This Bible makes a great Christmas gift for the conservative on your list.

I like my purchase. However, the print is so small, I cannot read it yet. I will need to get a page magnifier to be able to see the words on the page.

This bible is wonderful. A real study bible with very good comments. Better than the other two that I have. So good that I ordered the second one. I will take the Geneva bible to church and leave the KJV home.

This is a scripture that has life, flows like wonderful inspirational music. It's a different read compared to the KJV...but is awesome and familiar, rich in history and a true vehicle driven by the Holy Spirit. I've got two (2) genuine leather versions of this excellent product and have read the burgundy colored one cover-to-cover, twice. It is a well of personal renewal.

available I bought immediately. Honestly before I found this I had no idea that there was an older version than the King James. You cannot beat the historical value of this Geneva as well as the original reformer notes. If you are like me and love the Word and enjoy reading it and you love history then this is a must buy!

I've been reading the Geneva Bible for close to 20 years and it is my favorite version. However, it was never the easiest to read because previous versions were simply photocopies of original copies. Problems encountered with these copies are the quality of the copying, the difficult to read font, and the 17th Century spelling which takes some time to get used to.
This printing completely eliminates all of these issues and now makes the Geneva Bible not only a blessing, but also easy as reading your morning newspaper. God bless all those whose efforts went into publishing this edition.
