Hendrickson Publishers Geneva Bible 1560 Edition - Slightly Imperfect

The Geneva Bible was a monumental achievement in the history of Protestant Bible translation. Born in a time of religious and political upheaval it helped foster scripture literacy among the common people of England. The first English Bible to be fully translated from the original languages, the Geneva Bible was the product of some of the finest biblical scholars of its day.

English settlers that voyaged to the New World favored the Geneva Bible. 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.
