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.
While one could get a facsimile, this Bible is easy on the eyes and gives one a glimpse of the reformers views with the notes they included with their Bible. Can't beat it for the price. This is my reader Geneva Bible. The bonded version rates a 5 star. I do have many facsimiles and they are also good. They don't have the notes sometimes big enough in the Facsimiles to do my eyes justice.
This Bible is not so easy to locate, and certainly not at this price. It arrived in perfect mint condition, and this Bible as great as it contains the Reformers' notes. If you're interested in this Bible, make sure you choose the Geneva Bible, 1599 Ed. with Reformer's notes. There are other editions out there, but unless you want a facsimile of the original w/o the Reformers' notes at a tremendous cost, this one is by far the best.
