The Bible of the Pilgrims and the Reformation reset in modern typeface, with minimal changes of spelling and pronunciation, and containing all its original margin notes.
Researched, compiled, and translated into English by exiled Reformers in Geneva, Switzerland, between 1557 and 1560, the Geneva Bible surely was carried aboard their three ships that sailed from England in December of 1606. The New England Pilgrims likewise relied on the Geneva Bible for comfort and strength on their 66-day voyage aboard the Mayflower in 1620, and were even more dependent upon it as they wrote the Mayflower Compact, a document unique in world history and the first constitutional government in the western hemisphere.

MstrD5 Stars Out Of 5Geneva 1599February 8, 2015MstrDQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been using my NKJV for many years and got a lot out of it but I am delighted with the Geneva Bible. I love the notes. I read each one as I pass that verse. I still use my NKJV for the notes it has thus allowing me to see a much deeper perspective. I have started to read from Gen:1;1, again, the notes offer me insight that I love and find even more reason to share.
I recommend this for anyone who likes to know more about the thoughts of the people who's lives are referenced.
AvocadessAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Bible translating to English the most trustworthy of Hebrew and Greek tests - in very small printDecember 26, 2014AvocadessAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I'm all good with the quality as far as paper, cover, etc. and love the gold-gilt edges of the paper in this 1599 Geneva Bible with modernized lettering and spellings. I am very grateful to have this Bible at all -- and thank all those who helped to get this printed and available to the buying public!
However, this Bible is very difficult for me to read. The print size of both the scriptures themselves as well as the footnotes is simply too small. The footnotes require a magnifying glass.
I would love to see Tolle Lege put out this Bible in 2 volumes: one of just the scriptures and any truly necessary footnotes for clarification in certain minimal points -- and a matching volume of just the Reformers' footnotes. I ADORE and am THANKFUL to the Reformers, but they are not God and I really don't need their footnotes to be right in my Bible -- especially when their presence causes the print size to become beyond minimal...! A good Bible should have at least an 11-point size font, because after all, we want to READ it -- and I find myself turning back often to my large-print KJV Bibles due to eye strain.
I learned in my work as a typist for 40 years that MANY people cannot read smaller than 12 point print, so I do not think that 11 point is asking too much. It is not giant print, but it is readable print for many, many more people.
Thanks again to Tolle Lege for making the beautiful Bible accessible to so many people! Even though the print is uncomfortably small, there is no other readable Geneva Bible out there, so for that reason, yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Puritans, Pilgrims, and Reformers, a Review of the 1599 Geneva Bible from Tolle Lege Press.November 13, 2014Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Tolle Lege Press is responsible for the rejuvenating the 1599 Geneva Bible. Unfortunately not many people know about this or seem to care. (Except for Kirk Cameron) I say it is unfortunate because I truly believe the historical importance of this translation has been overlooked for a blind allegiance to the KJV. Many people dont know anything about the Geneva translation. They are happy with their King James versions. Ive always wondered why the KJV onlyists are so loyal to a version that was translated by order of the King to conform to the ecclesiology of the Church of England. The royals and Church leaders were afraid of losing their grip on power. The Bibles of that time period all relied on the Latin Vulgate to some degree as a resource for translation. The Geneva and the KJV were no exceptions. The KJV relied on the Geneva for reference during its translation. The KJV onlyists are always spewing their venomous polemics towards all other versions being Papal translations from Rome. It is disturbing that they can suspend rational thought in regards to the KJV, but seem rational most other times.
The Geneva was translated by the Reformers. They had to flee to Geneva so that they wouldnt be martyred by the Roman Catholic Church and Bloody Mary, Queen of Scotts. John Calvin and John Knoxx are most often credited for the Geneva translation. There were other individuals working with them in Geneva to make this translation. The notes and references of this Bible are retained and printed in modern font. They are printed on the bottom of the page like a modern study Bible. These notes are what made this translation such an enemy to the Crowns of the King and the Pope. You have to understand that the Roman Catholic Church was in the business of hunting down and killing the reformers. Then Puritans were persecuted for believing what the reformation brought to fruition. This is what led to them becoming pilgrims. They fled to America hoping to live God honoring lives obedient to His word. The Bible they took with them was the Geneva Bible.
Dont mind the trolls. They keep complaining about some pagan imagery on the cover, but I dont see any. Ive asked them specifically and really havent gotten any answers other than, Youre going to Hell for using anything but the KJV heretic!!! and now for something completely different, how about the review of the 1599 Geneva Bible?
The 1599 arrived in a cardboard box. Inside was the Bible in its retail 2 piece box. The cd-rom contains searchable, printable PDFs of the Geneva Bible, plus the Apocryphal Books and Metrical Psalms, was also in the retail box. The packaging was sufficient to ensure the Bible was delivered without being damaged. Tolle Lege did a wonderful job of giving the 1599 a modern typography. They placed all of the references and notes at the bottom like a modern day study Bible. The Bible is printed on some pretty opaque paper. It is off white and a bit more rigid than most Bible papers Ive seen. I dont know what kind of paper it is for sure, but it seems suitable. The text is printed in a double column verse format with an 8 point font. The notes are printed at the bottom of the page like a modern study Bible. Chapter numbers are larger and in bold print. The pages are bound in a sewn binding done here in America. The sewn binding makes up for the bonded leather cover. I cant begin to tell you how much I detest bonded leather. I would much rather see a hardcover or trutone fake leather cover. Of course if this Bible came in a top grain cowhide or goatskin cover with sewn edge lining of leather it would be great. The cover is lined on the inside with white paper that is glued down. The front outer cover is decorated with, 1599 Geneva Bible at the top and some kind of flower on the bottom. I imagine that these are the pagan symbols the kooks are upset about. Who knows? The spine is also gild with the same as is on the cover except on the bottom of the spine is the Tolle Lege logo. The sewn binding makes this Bible open well despite the bonded leather cover. The binding keeps the pages from folding closed on you while you are reading. It also will make this Bible hold up much better. There is one black ribbon marker. The page edges are gild. There is a Middle English Glossary in the back and several prayers including morning and evening. There is a purely subjective quality about this Bible that makes me want to sit and read it. The combination of the size, weight, paper, and layout, make sense to me and I find it easy to read. Now just because that is the experience I have with it doesnt mean I expect everyone to agree with me so dont go launching fiery darts at me. This Bible should be a part of every Christians library. If you don't have one, go get one.
Amy5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful BibleNovember 13, 2014AmyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have had my copy of this bible for about 9 months. It is very handsome and holding up very well. I find it very easy to read, often more so that the KJV. I have used a Dake's KJV for many years, so I am used to having notes, however I find that the set up of the pages in my Geneva bible is preferable. It is interesting the difference in how it reads, particularly when compared the popular recent translations often used in churches. This is now my favorite bible. It makes studying the Word very enjoyable and I feel like it is more reliable and true to the original writings than many of the versions published today.
Q: Can I have a name embossed in gold on the cover
CBD will imprint this Bible with a gold foil, but it is not technically "embossing".
Q: Does the 1599 study bible have the founding documents that are included in the patriot's edition?
No, this edition does not have any of the early American documents found in the American Patriots edition.
Q: Is this a regular bible to read or just for studying.
Yes, this is the complete text of the 1599 Geneva Bible and can be used for reading or studying.
Q: what is the size of the print? point size of the print for this bible?
The font size is 6 point.
