Unlike most reader’s editions, the MGB retains chapter and verse markings so you can keep track of Bible reading plans and sermon references.
In keeping with the original Geneva Bible, this is a Bible made to be read.
A Bible that connects you to your Christian heritage
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.
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.
A great advance.
Its most felicitous turns have gone into the KJV. A man would need to unmake himself before he was an impartial critic.
