The leather cover is best when replaced with goatskin like I did - but as a Bible to carry to church services, it is wonderful as is! For serious followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, it should be the ONLY ONE to compare others to - It should be THE source for facts alone! The quality is a 9 out of 10, since I have been using mine since it came out - later than planned by Hendrickson Pub. of course - but I was impressed at the first touch! It is a King James, without baptismal regeneration verses, and makes a great witnessing tool, especially to those who believe in baptism for salvation, (which NO christian should believe) and is pure in wording and stronger than the KJV in Baptist doctrine!!! I have preached many times, and taught from it many times, and use it 100% of my Bible reading time.
Love this Bible and enjoyed reading the apocrypha books in the center section. This will be an heirloom to leave to my family some day. The Old Time English is not difficult to read once you figure it out.
This is the correct translation of the bible that was written for people to learn and study the truth. Buy this and study as asking for guidance. Love all of you brothers and sisters of our LORD Almighty ELOHIM .
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.
Very well made copy of the Geneva Bible, 1560 edition.

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.
