Have you ever gone someplace spectacular in the great outdoors? Someplace so awe inspiring that you so wanted to have your Bible with you to read about the glory of God in such a place, yet you left your Bible at home because you knew that where you were going wasn’t going to be friendly to printed material?
Now, when you go camping, hiking, boating, to the pool, lake, ocean, get deployed or even just have a habit of wanting to read in the tub but don’t because you have the dropsies, you can take along the Waterproof Bible.
Yes, you read that right. I had the privilege of reviewing a WATERPROOF BIBLE!!!!!!!
This is so cool. It is produced by Bardin Marsee Publishing to fill the need of being able to take the Bible everywhere. This Bible is so hard to mess up. It doesn’t rip (even my manly man of a husband couldn’t get it to rip when I had him try it). This Bible can get wet, get totally submerged, mud on it, dropped in a river, taken up in the Himalayas, accidentally shoved in the freezer while wet, go visit sharks and any other random place that it can go. Dirt just rinses off, the pages are very sturdy synthetic material and very hard to mangle (I think having it bitten by a rattlesnake would put holes in some of the pages probably, and dropping it into an active volcano will probably render it melted but I’m not sure I would be willing to try and fish it out of hot lava myself…). I’m not too sure how well it would hold up if it is run over with a lawnmower if it is left out in the grass on mowing day, and I’m not too willing to try that test myself (as it was, having HubbaHubba try and rip it apart was nerve wracking enough!)
If you are a person who insists on writing in your Bible, don’t use a water based pen. Ball point pens and dry highlighters work best or you run the risk of smears or it rinsing off when you tip your kayak over in the rapids.
They have several different translations of the Bible to choose from. They carry KJV, NKJV, ESV, NLT and NIV so you can choose the version that fits with your ideology. You can purchase the Waterproof Bible at several different retailers if are so excited you can’t wait for one to get shipped to you or go through their website, especially if you want to order something a bit more customized that they offer.
I so look forward to going camping with this Bible later this summer. I’ve always been rather scared to take our good paper Bibles out with us on outings like that before, and now, I can’t wait to do so! Plus I can read it next to the pool while the girls are swimming the summer away and not have to worry about it getting ruined.
—I will add photos later after I get them edited. I am just now getting back to routine after a family emergency that required us to make a hasty trip to my parents’ home ten hours away for nearly a week. More on that and what else that has been going on in our lives recently (all rather crazy stuff) later after I get caught up. Thanks for bearing with us in this season of life.—
