    "The Geneva Bible, printed over 200 times between 1560 and 1644, was the most widely read and influential English Bible of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This superb translation was the product of the best Protestant scholars of the day andbecame the Bible of choice for many of the greatest writers, thinkers, and historical figures of that time. Men such as Shakespeare, John Bunyan, andJohn Milton used the Geneva Bible, and it was reflected in their writings. During the English CivilWar, Oliver Cromwell issued a pamphlet containingexcerpts from the Geneva Bible to his troops. The Geneva Bible is unique among all other Bibles.It was the first Bible to use chapters and numbered verses and became the most popular version of its time because of the extensive marginal notes. These notes, written by Reformation leaders such asJohn Calvin, John Knox, Miles Coverdale, William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and others, were included to explain and interpret the scriptures for thecommon people. For nearly half a century thesenotes helped the people of England, Scotland, andIreland understand the Bible and true liberty. King James despised the Geneva Bible because he considered the notes on key political texts to be seditious and a threat to his authority. Unlike the King James Version, the Geneva Bible was not authorized by the government. It was truly a Bible by thepeople and for the people. You can see why this remarkable version with its profound marginal notesplayed a key role in the formation of the AmericanRepublic.
