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.

I want only the absolute truth of God's word. This volume as well as the 1611 King James are infallible tools in comparing the ESV and other translations that change the original text to the point that it is unrecognizable.

Binding is as good as any I have seen. Printed on good paper, should last as well as other premium Bibles. Footnote tell you what the Reformers and Seperatists were thinking as well as good explanations of very many passages. One thing though, print or font size could be a size or two bigger. Even so, the ptint is extremely clear and sharp to the eyes.

I love the Geneva Bible. I has one of the original reprint but it is so hard to read and I have to use a magnifying glass to read some of it. The new one is easy to read and in modern English. I haven't had a chance to review the footnotes but am looking forward to it. A statute of a Pilgrim in Plymouth, MA he is holding the Geneva Bible.

I mainly got this bible for comparison reasons and it has an amazing value for this. i wish however, that the quality was not so bad, it is very cheaply made and the bonded leather is of very poor quality so do not buy this if you only want it for a long last bible to carry around.

once you know who is the real king JAMES then you would not recommend his bible.this GENEVA bible was brought here by the PURITAN in 1620 and not the KING JAMES .the Geneva bible was made for the people by the people.it was the best selling bible at that time even when the KING JAMES bible was published in 1611 .until his son CHARLES order to stop publication in 1644.thank GOD we can still read this BIBLE

I really like the Geneva Bible I received from you. My only problems are that the text is a little too small and puts a strain on my eyes reading it. It could have wider margins as I do like to take notes while listening to my pastor. The CD is great but I can't carry it to Sunday Service so it doesn't help me there, only after I get back. It would have been nice if the Apocrypha had been included in the Bible itself as my pastor has referred to it on occasion. Other than that, I'm very glad I purchased it from you and have had others asking about how to get one with the same deal I got. Thank you very much for the Bible.

Have used the geneva bible for 15 years, It is an excellent inspired version along with the KJV. If you are looking for a word for word this is the Bible for you. Based on Textus receptus not the corrupt Alexandrian text. Thank you for the 2 for 1 special. Run it again please. I have sent many people to your site. Fast shipping. Thanks again and God's richest blessing ti all of you.
