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.

Bill1950Bloomington, Mn.Age: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Very Interesting TranslationApril 30, 2016Bill1950Bloomington, Mn.Age: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My wife purchased The Geneva Bible 1599 Edition for our Anniversary after a great deal of hinting about it. I have read through many translations of the Bible. I love to read The King James Authorized version and was curious about the difference. The Geneva 1599 is very similar in terms of language. One of the humorous thing was the Lord making "breeches" for Adam and Eve after they had sinned. I guess that so far the main difference is the use of the language. The verses seem to be richer. I can't really put my finger on it so to speak.I wouldn't advise a new Christian to pick this as their primary Bible but I'm having an enjoyable time reading it.
Jay4 Stars Out Of 5Love the words and notes - Binding case and cover are to delicateFebruary 26, 2016JayQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 3I bought this book mainley for the older english wording and reformer notes. That's most important to me. However the book binding is real cheap and I would have presfered a hard cover or spiral for that matter. Almost afraid to open the book much of the time as if it's going to come loose.

cj4 Stars Out Of 51599 Geneva BibleJanuary 11, 2016cjQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I received this bible as a gift after waiting a long time for it. I have other bibles but have a warm feeling in my heart when reading the through the pages; I feel as though I am sitting next to the reformers. I enjoy reading their notations. The paper is very nice; the point size very small but I wear glasses so it is not overwhelmingly uncomfortable for me. I would prefer a 14 pt - perhaps Tolle Lege will produce one in the future - which will make many people extremely happy even if it has to be bigger in overall size.
I do NOT like the cover, however, and would have been inclined to send the bible back if it did not have my name on the cover. It is rather stiff - does not have a very pliable feel - and is wider than any other bible covers I have in my library. All of my other bible covers measure from 5 - 6 mm from the paper edge. The 1599 cover hangs almost 1/2 inch (11 mm) away from the paper edge - very peculiar. With frequent use, it will wear VERY poorly and probably bend and eventually crack at the bend. I did not read through all the reviews, so I am not sure if this is consistent with others who have gotten this bible or if it is just this production. I would like to hear from Tolle Lege on this subject, if possible.
I will click yes as to whether or not I would recommend this to a friend, but I would make sure they were aware of the cover issues.
d leeCynthiana, INAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 51599 Geneva BibleDecember 24, 2015d leeCynthiana, INAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"The Bible of 'firsts'"! Excellent translation, excellent notes from the Reformers. Good paper and even printing throughout. Wish it had a Trutone cover rather than bonded leather, which is always just this side of awful (the only reason I lowered the quality rating by one point)...but still, for the price here, let nothing keep you from purchasing and reading this wonderful translation of the Scriptures. Thankful to have this available again after so long, and thankful for great service from Christianbook once again! Grace and peace.
