Reading the Bible with the Experts


Of the many rare Bibles owned by our library one of my favorites is a copy of the Geneva Bible, printed in London in 1609. This Bible version, originally published in 1560 by Reformed Christians living in Geneva, was the most popular English-language Bible for decades, even after the King James Version of 1611 was published. It was the Bible of William Shakespeare's day, and was also the favored version of the early Plymouth and Virginia settlers in the United States.
