Product Description

The Geneva Bible was a monumental achievement in the history of Protestant Bible translation. Born in a time of religious and political upheaval it helped foster scripture literacy among the common people of England.

The first English Bible to be fully translated from the original languages, the Geneva Bible was the product of some of the finest biblical scholars of its day. It was the first to feature many innovations in the field of Bible publishing:

  • Text printed in readable roman type
  • Division of the text into numbered verses
  • Italic type used for words not in the original languages
  • Marks placed over the accented syllables to aid in pronouncing proper names
  • Extensive textual and explanatory commentary placed in the margins
  • Words/phrases displayed at the heads of pages to promote scripture memorization
  • Maps and woodcuts illustrating biblical scenes included
  • Sold in a variety of sizes so many people could afford a household Bible

English settlers that voyaged to the New World favored the Geneva Bible. It is probable that the Geneva Bible came to America in 1607 and was used in the Jamestown colony. Thirteen years later the Pilgrims brought it with them on the Mayflower's perilous voyage to religious freedom.

Features:

  • Facsimile of the University of Wisconsin Press edition of the 1560 Geneva Bible
  • Features clear, legible type throughout (marginal commentary is in smaller type)
  • Complete, original marginal commentary, maps and woodcut illustrations
  • Authoritative introduction to the Geneva Bible by Lloyd E. Berry

Publisher's Description

The Bible of the Protestant Reformation

Sixteenth century English Protestant scholars were determined to make the scriptures understandable to common people, so that, as William Tyndale famously put it, "the boy that driveth the plough should know more of the scriptures" than the educated man.

However, Queen Mary's (1553-1558) persecution of her Protestant subjects caused many to flee to the continent to avoid imprisonment or execution. Geneva, Switzerland soon became a center for Protestant biblical scholarship. It was there that a group of the movement's leading lights gathered to undertake a fresh translation of the scriptures into English, beginning in 1556.

Published in 1560, the Geneva Bible's popularity kept it in print until 1644--long after the advent of the Authorized Version (a.k.a. King James Version). It was an English Bible that met the needs of both clergy and laity. Perhaps the Geneva Bible's greatest contribution was its commentary, which under girded the emerging practice of sermonizing and helped foster scripture literacy. The Geneva Bible was the first to feature many innovations in the field of Bible publishing:
• Text printed in readable roman type; 7 pt. type
• Smyth sewn
• Division of the text into numbered verses
• Italic type used for words not in the original languages
• Marks placed over the accented syllables to aid in pronouncing proper names
• Extensive textual and explanatory commentary placed in the margins
• Words/phrases displayed at the heads of pages to promote scripture memorization
• Maps and woodcuts illustrating biblical scenes included
• Sold in a variety of sizes so many people could afford a household Bible

The Geneva Bible accompanied English settlers voyaging to the new world. It is probable that the Geneva Bible came to America in 1607 and was used in the Jamestown colony. Thirteen years later the Pilgrims brought it with them on the Mayflower's perilous voyage to religious freedom. The Geneva Bible stands as a landmark in the history of English Bible translation. Hendrickson's facsimile reproduces one of the finest existing copies of the 1560 Geneva Bible. Using quality materials and crafted to last, Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible will treasure this volume.

FAQ
Q. Does the Geneva Bible come with the Apochrypha?
A. Yes, like most Bibles printed before 1800, the Geneva Bible comes with the Apocrypha.

Q. Will it come with a concordance using Strong's numbers?
A. Hendrickson's 1560 Geneva Bible is a facsimile of an original copy of the book. Therefore it will not include "modern" features such as a concordance with Strong's numbers.

    I love this bible. I chose the leather one to add to my bible collection. I love how this bible is a copy of a genuine 1560 edition. The type setting is small but most readable. The marginal notes however will require one to put on a set of reading magnifiers. I have 20/20 vision but to read this bible's notes comfortably, a magnifying glass is needed. The 1560's text appears virtually identical to the 1599 Geneva. The marginal notes however are dramatically different between the two. This is a thick and large bible with the Aprocrypha. Because this is a facsimile copy (read: colored PHOTO COPY), naturally every light printing and blemish is going to be identical on these copies. For anyone to complain about this bible having "too light" or "blemished type set," they dont understand the fact that this is a professionally made photo-copy of a very old bible in a univeristy. It is a teriffic bible translation and really fun to read through some really old Elizibethan english. I just wish the leather quality was nicer, but it is what it is for a mass produced "leather bible.". I could always get it re-bound later.

    I enjoy sitting, and reading from this beautiful copy of the Geneva Bible. The spelling, and old style print is harder to read than our modern versions. It is a wonderful way to open your mind to Gods Word, and prayerfully study the Scriptures. The HOLY SPIRIT will guide you, if you ask Him.

    The Bible is well made, and would make a great addition to your Biblical library.

    This is truly a .great product and made very well. This is fun to read too along with some crazy English most of us are not used to. I don't mind preaching from this what I do is read it the way it's written and then the same way but with today's wording but not really changing it. Easy to remember that this is the Puritan Bible they brought it to America with them. Let's not forget that John Calvin put in most of these notes as well. I think if you wanted to try something diff this is really it or maybe the Hendrickson 1537 Matthew's Bible which is really the very first Bible of the Reformation.

    Better understanding of scriptures. The Geneva Bible was the one used by our founding fathers. It is printed in Old English Script and is beautiful. Better than KJV.
