Product Description

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.

    My Geneva Bible and My Gods Grace

    Meets Expectations: 5
    This Bible has become a constant companion to me. I take it to work and to church. The notes included by the Reformers are full of rewarding contextual insight that are continually deepening my love and understanding of Gods Word. The depth of His grace through the companion notes is thirst quenching. Its become brand new to me again, and yet familiar and concrete. It is sound, clear and sharp. In such a time as this, when the world has waxed hard against context of scripture, the Geneva Bible has given me an even more driven desire to share the true gospel to a lost world; that it is by grace alone, by faith alone and by scripture alone that we are saved. Put away your works based, prosperity false gospels and doctrines and understand that you will know BECAUSE the Bible tells you so!!! God bless and may you come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

    I love this product. Beautiful outside, and accurate inside. The notes are helpful. Every verse that I have checked the native language roots of so far has been RIGHT ON in accuracy of translation. The only thing I would change is make it available in larger print, my vision is terrible, and the print is small.

    This bible translation has been one that I've been wanting for over a year but never got to buy it since it was backordered or the remaining published ones were selling for expensive amounts. I then searched for them again and CBD ended up selling this version for less than I would assume and its durable leather, pages are soft with thin look to them, the package of the bible comes with a DVD for further personal studying. The bible was worth the price and will probably buy another one of these as a present for one of my pastors and a close friend of mine. I truly did enjoy buying the Geneva Bible since its like having a version that is no longer published but has timeless value in the teachings that the Puritans had back in the 16th century.

    My 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.

    I 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.
