Do you plan on doing (or will you please do) a version of the Geneva Bible with the notes that made it famous? It was the the extensive footnotes in the Geneva bible (some of which challenged the authority of the Catholic church and the Church of England) that pushed King James to do his own translation.

I heard a lecture over the weekend that cited several Geneva bible notes that were very enlightening.

We sell the Geneva Bible and Notes separately right now, and they can be used together using the Analyze Verse feature. Will we make a version with integrated notes? Maybe.

Instead, though, we may do a new "BYOSB" feature that allows you to create one yourself. (Build Your Own Study Bible) would allow you to choose a Bible, then choose a commentary or cross reference set that appears inside that Bible automatically, so you can mix and match.

That would be very cool- I've started doing that with the notes feature, but it would be better if the comment was located at the proper point in the verse. I hadn't noticed the Geneva Bible Notes before - I'll get them right away. It would be nice if they were integrated into the text like you have done with the NIV version.
