Let’s say you want to go hiking and want to take your Bible with you so when you find a nice spot to sit and contemplate God’s creations you can read. After a while that nice Bible will get torn and dirty and pretty beat up. Right? What do you do?
You create a waterproof Bible that is totally, 100%, waterproof. The paper, the bindings, the cover, everything will not absorb water. Because of the special paper the pages can’t be torn or damaged either!
I can you thinking, “What is she talking about? One of those plastic covered books my kid plays with in the tub?!”
WHAT IS IT?
The boys love to get the mail. I don’t know why but it’s a huge thrill for them to see what goodies we got today. My sister signs me up for all kinds of free samples and then there’s things that Mosaics Reviews sends me. When they brought the package to me they had to see what all the fuss was about. When I told them that it was waterproof they were incredulous.
When I got back they had me sit down to watch their latest creation about the waterproof Bible from Barden & Marsee Publishing. In a way, I guess, you could say all three of us wrote this review.
* I posted a link to this video and the publishers tweeted back that they loved it!
Since I carry this Bible in my purse it went with me to my married couples Bible study group. I might have freaked them out a bit when I purposely spilled my coffee on it. OK, well, yeah, they freaked out A LOT. I may or may not have laughed.
It’s all good, they forgave me, and then laughed uproariously. I explained what I was doing and why. Later I sent them the link to the boys’ video. They thought this was awesome and want to purchase one for themselves to take on mission trips!
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
The version I received for this review was the Women’s Bible with the NIV translation with the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. It is the perfect size, and weight, to carry in my purse.
You can also purchase the Waterproof Bible in 5 other translations with the OT and NT, or just the NT with Psalms and Proverbs. The prices range from $44.95 to $24.95 depending on translation, cover, and size. They will even personalize it for you or your organization in a number of ways.
We were told by the publishers that they do not recommend you use Sharpies, roller ball or gel pen to write in this Bible because those need paper to absorb the liquid. This paper is specially made to repel moisture, so, um, yeah, that won’t work. They also suggest using something called a “dry highlighter”. I had never heard of such a thing but you can purchase one from Amazon.*
What do you think? Is this something you need to have to take with you on those camping trips or just to have with littles around? Let me know in the comments.
