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 with easy-to-read modern typesetting
- Middle English Glossary
- Original cross references

But I'll have to say it is a really nice bible. I love the cover, the paper, the notes are great, and I think this will become my everyday study bible because I just can't seem to put it down for very long. I would recommend this to everyone. May God bless the reading of His Word.
Robert Shipleys/w washingtonAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful copy of Gods wonderful Word.March 31, 2015Robert Shipleys/w washingtonAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 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.
Q: Are the pages on the hardcover edition gilded? And are the page corners square?
This Bible does have square corners, but is not gilded.
Q: Does this version contain the Apocryphal books?
No, this edition does not contain the Apocrypha.
Q: What is the point size of the type please? Thanks!
This Bible has an 8 point font.
