Geneva Bible: Text and Notes


Digital Logos Edition

Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



Published in 1560, the Geneva Bible is arguably the most important early English translation of the Bible. With the publication of the New Testament in 1557, and the complete Bible in 1560, the Geneva Bible predates the King James Version by 51 years. Some of history’s most influential men, such as William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Milton, John Knox, and John Bunyan, used the Geneva Bible.

The Geneva Bible was also the first complete Bible to be mass produced Bible for the public, making it readily accessible for the common person to read, study, and cherish. With the inclusion of notes and study aids, the Geneva Bible was one of the first “study Bibles” to ever be published.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

    The fact that the Geneva Bible was the Bible for many great men is enough to make it a great edition to ones library.

    As someone primarily invested in the KJV, I find the "Geneva Bible: Text and Notes" to be crucial for basic Reformed doctrine. The only difficulty, as mentioned by reviewers before, is the older English spelling as well as the many abbreviated spellings which printers used to save space. Modern theologians and pastors/reverends would do well to reconsider the past they have discarded which is within this holy work.

    The “Overview” of the Geneva Bible states that “Some of history’s most influential men, such as William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Milton, John Knox, and John Bunyan, used the Geneva Bible.” I am unsure of significance of this statement, for example, re John Bunyan (and perhaps Milton). Does this mean he merely “used” the Geneva as a Bible, or that Bunyan used the Geneva Bible instead of the King James Version? The latter idea seems to be an urban legend easily found on the internet. What I have seen supporting Bunyan’s use of the Geneva Bible as his primary Bible does not seem very substantial. In fact, the writings of Bunyan himself give ample proof that he was primarily using the King James translation rather than Geneva – based on his Bible quotations, references to marginal readings, and so forth.

    There are many spelling and grammatical errors in this digital version.. many letters are missing on pretty much every page. It does my seem to have been cross-checked with the print version of the Geneva Bible. So it makes it difficult for me to faithfully read this digital version since I find myself spending much of my time wondering if the words I’m reading are the real original spellings or if the computer software that scanned it made a mistake because of the difference in writing characteristics of the 16th century.

    Not the modern spelling version, but okay with that. What is troublesome is it is a poorly checked OCR version so it doesn't replicate the original version faithfully.

    Are the text and notes integrated with each other?
