Product Description

 

The 1599 Geneva Bible

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. A wonderful remaster of what is one of the greatest English Bible translations ever

    Vance (Submitted on 12th Aug 2017)

    I only found out about the existence of the Geneva Bible within the last two years, but now that I know of it, it makes me sad to know how forgotten this translation is among Christians in the United States.

    The wording is similar to that of the King James (or it should probably be said the other way around) and is very easy to read along with. The commentary/annotations are great too and have provided insight into a number of matters contained in the Bible that I previously had troubles understanding. I would recommend this version above any other to those who want to know what the original biblical texts had to say, but are unable to read ancient Hebrew and Greek.

    As far as this particular copy of the 1599 Geneva Bible goes, I absolutely love it. The only reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is because I feel that it lacks some things that could have been included in it. They kept the epistle to the reader (titled To The Christian Reader in this copy), but omitted the letter to Queen Elizabeth contained in the 1560 version. While not essential, I think that this letter adds a layer of historical appreciation to the Geneva Bible. I also wish that they had left the Apocrypha in this version, not because I believe that they are divinely inspired texts (which I do not), but because the original Geneva Bibles did contain them. I also enjoyed reading them in other versions because it helps give insight into Catholicism and its doctrines. The CD-ROM makes up for this in part as the Apocrypha are included on it, but having a PDF is not the same as being able to bring the actual text with you in a book format.


  2. Mom starting crying....

    TM- Michigan (Submitted on 18th Jan 2017)

    I bought two leather bound Geneva Bibles.
    Great quality and easy to read, durable enough to bring with you any where.
    I gave one to my mom for her birthday and she was amazed to hold a read such an important early American book. She loved the wording much better than her KJV. Awesome! Thank you.


  3. Could use larger print

    Bill (Submitted on 30th Dec 2016)

    could use larger print. maybe the next font size or 2 up, other than that, it is a nice bound book and is good looking


  4. Great Bible

    Unknown (Submitted on 23rd Dec 2016)

    I like what they have done in reproducing this Bible. The notes are valuable to me to understand the Puritan view of scriptures in the 16th century.
    The quality of the cover and binding are good.


  5. AWESOME BIBLE

    Branden Ruiz (NW Indiana) (Submitted on 17th Oct 2016)

    This is an awesome Bible, so grateful for the Word of God! I originally bought this Bible because I wanted to own a Bible that was "older than the KJV." The content and flow of this Bible is beautiful! Make sure to read the content (prefaces, prayers, introductions etc..) before the Old Testament and after the New Testament; some of the "best" prayers I have ever heard from our Reformation fore-fathers! I enjoy the weight of this Bible, hefty, not like a thin-line Bible and the pages seem to be of high quality. I have not yet had a chance to pop in the CD-ROM and go through the content but am looking forward to. I have looked through the facsimile versions of the 1560 Geneva Bible and it seemed to be very hard to read, let alone read an entire book of the Bible. Tolle Lege Press did a great job updating this 1599 Geneva Bible to something that is able to be read with retaining the notes, comments, and feel of a Bible read in the 1500's by the common "plowman." Thank you!

  6. Ever heard of the 1599 Geneva Bible?

    Howard Williams (Submitted on 28th Sep 2016)

    When I ask that question, I get much the same answer. Never heard of it. They make a wonderful gift, When you say "it is the first Bible with chapter and verse with notes". The fore runner Bible of The King James version. The last one is the fourth one I have purchased , for gift sand the one I use is the Patriot's edition. Every true Patriot that loves God needs one.... HW


  7. Truth seeker

    Bruce (Submitted on 25th Feb 2016)

    I am probably a rarity among Christians, in that I do not except anything on face value. I must do as my God commands - Prove all things. My first step, was to prove that God is real. With out this vital step, a Christian is no better off than the evolutionist, who embraces a theory with blind allegiance. When I discovered The Geneva Bible, I knew that I must have one. God reveals new truth, to those who seek it.


  8. Font too small and too light

    Unknown (Submitted on 19th Nov 2015)

    I was so excited to get our new bible but to my disappointment, I have found it very hard to read as the font is small and the connotation font is so light, it is a great deal of work to read it.


  9. Nice bible

    Walter Heuer (Submitted on 24th Sep 2015)

    Nice Bible. Font is rather small. Would like an edition with large fonts.


  10. Great Bible

    Mike G. (Submitted on 29th Apr 2015)

    Great addition to my Bible library.
