More Info...

Where will the personalization be imprinted? Most Bibles and some Bible covers are imprinted in the front lower right corner, some in the lower center. The exact location is determined at the time of imprinting and varies by product.

What color will it be? Color depends on the color of other parts on the cover or the color of the page edges--usually gold or silver. Some products will have an impression only (no color applied) if the colored foils will not adhere well to the material.

How long will it take? Most items are personalized the same or next business day.
Personalizing a product usually does not delay the shipment.

Description

The Bible of the Protestant Reformation. Sixteenth century English Protestant scholars were determined to make the scriptures understandable to common people, so that, as William Tyndale famously put it, “the boy that driveth the plough should know more of the scriptures” than the educated man.

However, Queen Mary’s (1553–1558) persecution of her Protestant subjects caused many to flee to the continent to avoid imprisonment or execution. Geneva, Switzerland soon became a center for Protestant biblical scholarship. It was there that a group of the movement’s leading lights gathered to undertake a fresh translation of the scriptures into English, beginning in 1556.

Published in 1560, the Geneva Bible’s popularity kept it in print until 1644—long after the advent of the Authorized Version (a.k.a. King James Version). It was an English Bible that met the needs of both clergy and laity. Perhaps the Geneva Bible’s greatest contribution was its commentary, which under girded the emerging practice of sermonizing and helped foster scripture literacy. The Geneva Bible was the first to feature many innovations in the field of Bible publishing:

Geneva Bible

• Text printed in readable roman type; 7 pt. type
• Division of the text into numbered verses
• Italic type used for words not in the original languages
• Marks placed over the accented syllables to aid in pronouncing proper names
• Extensive textual and explanatory commentary placed in the margins
• Words/phrases displayed at the heads of pages to promote scripture memorization
• Maps and woodcuts illustrating biblical scenes included
• Sold in a variety of sizes so many people could afford a household Bible

The Geneva Bible accompanied English settlers voyaging to the new world. It is probable that the Geneva Bible came to America in 1607 and was used in the Jamestown colony. Thirteen years later the Pilgrims brought it with them on the Mayflower’s perilous voyage to religious freedom. The Geneva Bible stands as a landmark in the history of English Bible translation. Hendrickson’s facsimile reproduces one of the finest existing copies of the 1560 Geneva Bible. Using quality materials and crafted to last, Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible will treasure this volume.

VERY PLEASED!...This Bible was my gift to my husband for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. He loves to study the Reformation, so this was the perfect gift for him. He collects Bibles, so this was a great addition to his collection. Very pleased with this purchase, and I highly recommend.

Only Bible for the serious Baptist...This is a very high quality printing of the 1560 edition of the Geneva Bible; and very durable, NOT cheap-looking in the least bit. I did have it rebound in goat skin leather and made into a hardback edition; Leonards Book Binding in Indiana did a perfect job too. I am a Genevan Baptist minister and I use this bible ONLY in my preaching and teaching. It is the ONLY bible a Baptist should use. Studying to show ourselves approved unto God by learning the 'language' of this edition is an enjoyable mission. More up-to-date language than the KJV.

The Geneva Bible 1560 Edition...This fine Bible version is an excellent addition to any collection. Although I do not personally hold to the Apocrypha as Holy, inspired Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16), the Geneva Bible 1560 Edition is none the less a timeless piece of Christian history!
