This is an interesting read, with a helpful dictionary of archaic words in the back, so I would recommend it for someone like me, who is interested in the "faith of our fathers", but will not be using it a lot after a read-through. The binding is so-so, the leather cover feels and acts more like cardboard, and the ribbon immediately began shredding, to the point that I had to apply scotch tape along the whole ribbon after a couple of weeks of daily readings. (Using it for my one-year through the Bible 2014)
I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. He loves it and so do I. It is so easy to read and enjoy. The pages are a little thicker than typical Bible pages and the print is large, but not huge. It is way better than I thought it would be, so much so that I find myself using it a lot. The wording seems to flow better than NKJV or KJV which is what I am used to.
The 1599 Geneva Bible has been a fascinating read. It is a look back into history to a time of revolution against tyranny. The marginal notes are important to read as they are notes of John Calvin and shed some light on the tyrant king James. It's also the Bible used by the authors of the Mayflower Compact and also of our founding fathers of this country
The 1599 Geneva Bible is a great value in and of it's self. It gives great insight in to the minds of the reformers. The foot notes of the reformers are so full of depth and insight that I now use it as my study Bible. I am very happy with this Bible, the value is great on all levels.
