The time I have spent with this version it has really impressed me. I have not seen such good study notes that give me good and new perspective as the 1599 Geneva. Such a blessing to be able to see how those early reformers interpreted and explained the verses. If you are worried about accuracy just remember this translation men actually died to preserve, that is how much they believed in the accuracy of their work and how precious it was to them. I can't say the same for newer versions. To me that makes a huge difference.
This video gives some insight of the Protestant Reformation. This was one of the first Bibles that was translated into English. The truth was finally revealed to The World [after many centuries of deception and lies from The Catholic Church]. We would not have had The Bible today had it not been for God's hand over these brave men who were able to obtain the Greek and Hebrew scrolls from the Islamic Crusades. Much blood was shed so that we might have God's Precious and Holy word for access. I encourage anyone who doesn't know the history and heritage of our Christian Roots, to explore more about The Protestant Reformation.
With this said, there have been complaints about Tolle Lege Press' grammatical errors in this renewed reprint of the 1599 Geneva Bible, I have read a number of books from it thus far and have found it to be in good quality. Tolle Lege Press has made a number of revisions and it definately is great to read. With this said, however, I have seen some minor errors. Though, on their site, they do state that they would NOT change any errors that were in the original 1599 Geneva Bible in order to maintain its historical validity. Bearing this in mind, these minor/slight issue do NOT hinder the reading experience and the words in this transation is VERY POWERFUL.
I have a King James/New King James Parallel Bible and there is no comparison. The 1599 Geneva Bible is now my personal favorite. I certainly hope that new printings of the original English translations like Tyndale, Wyclife and others will be printed at some time. However, I do not agree that the apocrypha should be included with them. Tolle Lege Press made sure to NOT include these four-or-so books from being in this re-print. IT is certainly arguable. But I, personally, do not feel that these belong in God's Holy Word. They were books that were written when Israel had no prophets and have much things that are contradiction to God's Word. One must also know that the Protestant Reformers had still some bonds with the Catholic Church even though they did NOT stand united with them. Many reasons for why they kept it in the original translations, including historical information (informative). However, it will not be fruitful for any believer to actually read them.
With all this said, I definately recommend this Bible to anyone who wants a beautiful and insightful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek scrolls [Old Testiment and New Testiment].
