Happily Homeschooling
Hello All. My 30 day challenge took a bit of a break. It seems so many things have occupied my time over the last few weeks. In this time, I have gained several followers, thank you :-) I previously wrote that when I reached 50 followers, I would have a give-away. Well I now have over 50! To celebrate, I am restarting my challenge and am giving away a brand-new copy of the 1599 Geneva Bible

This Bible is pretty neat, IMHO. We just purchased one for ourselves and thought someone else might also enjoy one. It is an exact replica of the one that is claimed to be the edition that the Pilgrims brought to America in 1620. It is "the most widely read and influential English Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries." (americanvision.com)
The 1599 Geneva Bible will be a wonderful addition to your family. This edition is done in a beautiful black bonded soft leather cover, as seen in the picture to the left (it does not have gold gilded edges). The picture below offers an inside look at this remarkable Book. The features of this Bible are:

* Word-for-word accuracy with the 1599 Geneva Bible
* Original Cross References
* Original Study Notes by Reformers
* Old English Glossary
* Modern Spelling & Easy to Read Print
* Free CD-ROM with searchable, printable PDF's of the Geneva Bible, plus the Apocryphal Books & Metrical Psalms.

For more information, you can go to American Vision.

a side note: this give-away is being done because we like the Geneva Bible. When we received our purchased copy, we received one free and are offering it to you.

I've been interested in the Geneva Bible for several years now, but we haven't yet purchased one. I've heard mostly great things about it, but it seems like one ministry was criticizing it. Anyway, I'd like to learn more about the Geneva Bible!

I love books (hence the blog name) and I love beautiful Bibles (the best book out there!) and I think it'd be a wonderful addition to our family altar. I think the kids would get a thrill out of connecting to something so old (okay, not old old.. but history old... you know?)


Fri, 15 Apr 2011 02:08:56

We have looked at this Bible and been interested in owning a copy since it was first reproduced by American Vision. Would love to own one.
