The Bible of the Pilgrims and the Reformation reset in modern typeface, with minimal changes of spelling and pronunciation, and containing all its original margin notes.
Researched, compiled, and translated into English by exiled Reformers in Geneva, Switzerland, between 1557 and 1560, the Geneva Bible surely was carried aboard their three ships that sailed from England in December of 1606. The New England Pilgrims likewise relied on the Geneva Bible for comfort and strength on their 66-day voyage aboard the Mayflower in 1620, and were even more dependent upon it as they wrote the Mayflower Compact, a document unique in world history and the first constitutional government in the western hemisphere.
This edition also includes the following historical documents, which are based upon Biblical principles:
- The Prayer of George Washington
- The Magna Carta
- The Mayflower Compact
- The Declaration of Independence
- The Articles of Confederation
- The Constitution of the United States
- Amendments to the U.S. Constitution
