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.
- Word-for-word accuracy of the 1599 Geneva translation
- Modern spelling
- Easy-to-read print
- Middle English Glossary
- Original cross references
- Thousands of original study notes by the Reformers
- Includes introductory articles by Gary DeMar and Dr. Marshall Foster on the history of the 1599 Geneva Bible
- Ribbon marker

Robert Shipley5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful copy of Gods wonderful Word.March 31, 2015Robert ShipleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a beautiful copy of the 1599 Geneva Bible. The bonded leather is a little stiff, as is almost all bonded leather Bibles. I am impressed with the quality of this Bible. The print is small, but easily read. The paper is a nice bright white, with a good feel to it. I recommend adding this to your Biblical library, as a wonderful study tool.
May God bless you in your study of HIS wonderful Word.
The Klavers1 Stars Out Of 5False Representation of an Ancient BibleMarch 24, 2015The KlaversThis Bible is falsely titled, falsely advertised and falsely representative of the 1599 Geneva Bible. Tolle Lege should have called it the 2006 Geneva Bible (the year it was published), The Modern Geneva Bible, or the Updated 1599 Geneva Bible. If I updated the 1611 KJV text with modern English and published it as the 1611 KJV, what do you think would happen?
Furthermore, why Tolle Lege would choose to update the 1599 edition over the 1560 edition, other than a pre-suppositional agenda, is a mystery. ALL historians refer to the 1599 edition as "The Bastardized Geneva." It contains additional commentary by Junius to The Revelation of Saint John the Apostle that was heavily anti-Catholic. The Bible that changed the world was the 1560 Geneva--NOT the 1599 Geneva. If Tolle Lege were to reproduce any edition of the Geneva Bible, it should have been the 1560 with original commentary by the Reformers who translated it.
In the 1611 KJV, a marginal note for Luke 17:36 reads "This 36 verse is wanting in most of the Greek copies." In other words, this verse did not exist in the majority of the manuscripts. The fact this is true can be seen in the 1560 Geneva Bible where the 37th verse is the 36th verse. It would be nice to see someone reproduce a modern version of the 1560 Geneva Bible. I'd love to get my hands on that!
I do not recommend this Bible. If a Christian wants a piece of true church history for their library, I suggest obtaining a facsimile of the original 1560 Geneva Bible, which CBD offers. If there were a modernized 1560 copy, I would recommend that because it would be true to the original printing of the translation and commentary by those who put it together. The 1599 is referred to by historians as "The Bastardized Geneva" for good reason, and this edition follows suit.
Pastor Joseph BonaventuraSanta Monica, CAAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible Very Good TranslationMarch 6, 2015Pastor Joseph BonaventuraSanta Monica, CAAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Tolle Lege Press did a very good job with this translation I have been reading it for some time now and it's made it's way to be my go to bible. The print is pretty good and the notes are great. Looks like the notes are from the 1560 I would guess that they are not much different for the mast majority of the notes are written by Calvin. If wondered why there is no John Calvin Study Bible well this is it and couple more reformers. So if you are Reformed this is the Bible for you.
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.
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.
