The Geneva Bible: A Facsimile of the 1560 Edition - The Geneva Bible was the most widely read and influential Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A superb translation, it was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day and became the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers and thinkers of that time. William Shakespeare, John Bunyan, John Milton, and many others used the Geneva Bible. The Geneva Bible was also the world’s first study Bible. King James considered the commentary on key political texts to be a threat to his authority, and that’s why the King James Bible was published in 1611. Unlike the King James Version, the Geneva Bible was not authorized by the government. It was truly a Bible by the people and for the people. This facsimile edition is printed from pictures of the original pages.

1599 Geneva Bible Patriots Edition - The Pilgrims brought the 1599 Geneva Bible with them on the Mayflower when they came to the New World in 1620. William Bradford cited the Geneva Bible in his famous book Of Plymouth Plantation. The Geneva Bible shaped early American Colonial life and culture more than any other. The results of a people reading and obeying the Word of God were the explosion of faith, character, literacy, economic blessing, as well as political and religious freedom. This Special Patriot’s Edition Includes: the 1599 Geneva Bible Text with 300,000 Study Notes; the prayer of George Washington; the Magna Carta; tThe Mayflower Compact; the Declaration of Independence; the Articles of Confederation; the Constitution of the United States; Amendments to the U.S. Constitution; George Washington’s “Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior.”

The American Patriot's Bible: The Word of God and the Shaping of America - The American Patriot’s Bible intersects the teachings of the Bible with the history of the Unites States while applying it to today’s culture.
