PRESBYTERIAN THOUGHTS: Geneva Bible Spam

The Geneva Bible has recently been updated with current English spelling, modern font, and complete with the 1599 notes that have been loved by Protestant Christians for years. This would be worth the purchase for anyone who prefers the Byzantine Textform but does not really enjoy the Authorized Version (King James). When you read the Geneva Bible you see that the Reformed believed in having a Bible translated into the vulgar or common tongue. I prefer this translation and am ecstatic that it is available once again for use by the people of God.

Does it come with the Psalter in the middle? Seditious notes, too?

I have also read that the original edition's notes are different than some of the later editions.

Man, that looks nice. A bit rich for my blood, unfortunately, but still very nice. Thanks for the tip.

Look at the link. I think that I am going to get the leather one for only 70 bucks or so. Good stuff.

Nate, what does the Geneva compare to/how different is it from the KJV?

Lloyd, KJV which many treasure over everything else even Greek and Hebrew originals! very much depended on Geneva. The reason Ping-Pong Jim ordered this was because of the notes in geneva translation which talked of eg. sole allegiance to God above all kings and rulers.

nate, Geneve Bible Spam? Are you really serious?(ofcourse, antiquties is a great spam market, I heard some tear originals into pages and sell them individually for a much higher price!@!)
