A Bible that connects you to your Christian heritage
This was the most influential Bible translation in history.
The Geneva Bible was the first English Bible to be translated entirely from the original languages. John Bunyan, Shakespeare, the Puritans, and the Pilgrims all read it.
What’s more, the Geneva Bible was made for ordinary people, printed in easy-to-read font using common words. By 1640, it had sold over a million copies.
Most importantly, it was intended for daily reading by everyone.
But despite the Geneva Bible’s profound impact on our Christian heritage, you’ve probably never had the chance to read it. We want to fix that.

Geneva is the worst
God gives not Kings the style of Gods in vain,
For on his throne his Sceptre do they sway;
And as their subjects ought them to obey
