Description

All but forgotten today, the Geneva Bible was the most widely read and influential English Bible of the 16th and 17th centuries. It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower. Recognizing that the Geneva Bible and its notes were undermining the authority of the monarchy, King James I of England commissioned the “Authorized Version,” commonly known as the King James Bible, as its replacement. The King James Version did not include any of the inflammatory footnotes, of course, but it also altered key translations to make them seem more favorable to episcopal and monarchial forms of government. But the people were not fooled. The Pilgrims and Puritans preferred the Geneva Bible over the King James Bible, not trusting the king’s purported good faith. The Geneva Bible was brought over on the Mayflower, and it is not an exaggeration to say that the Geneva translation and footnotes were the biblical foundations of the American Republic. This Bible also includes the following historical documents, which are based on Biblical principles:

  • Magna Carta
  • Mayflower Compact
  • Declaration of Independence
  • Articles of Confederation
  • The Constitution of the United States
  • The Amendments to the U.S. Constitution
  • Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior
  • The Prayer of George Washington
  • Word-for-word accuracy of the 1599 Geneva translation
  • Modern spelling with easy-to-read modern typesetting
  • Middle English Glossary
  • Original cross references
  • Thousands of original study notes by the Reformers
  • Includes introductory articles by Gary DeMar and Dr. Marshall Foster on the history of the 1599 Geneva Bible
