A Waterproof Bible?
Just after Easter this year, I ran away from the snow in Virginia and headed to the beach off the Georgia coast. Right before I left, I got a fabulous review item in the mail from Bardin & Marsee.
So want to guess what I got that turned out to be so great? I bet you’ll never guess.
It was a Waterproof Bible, an ESV version that included the New Testament, the Psalms and Proverbs, to be exact.
Weird, right? I love it! I got my waterproof, durable and sweet pink Bible from a company that specializes in rugged Bibles. You can find all kinds of information, including pricing on the website, http://www.bardinmarsee.com/.
They carry many different versions, for example, the KJV, NIV, ESV, NKJV and NLT. And every Bible is 100% waterproof inside and out. They are made from synthetic materials for longevity and extreme conditions. The pages have a nice, study feel to them. They are not too slippery or thin and the cover feels very solid and durable.
I took mine on my travels and I was pleased with the size. It fit easily in my tote, so I could keep it out of my main luggage and with me, making it easy to use often. I did miss the Old Testament, but the entire Bible is available also, I just did not get that one and the slim size of this one does work well.
I left my main Bible at home and did not have to worry about losing that. The synthetic pages of this waterproof one can be written on as well, so I started up with new notes.
I brought the Bible to the beach with me and purposefully treated it a bit roughly, just to see what would happen. I did not submerge the Bible, as I read many people have done. That made me nervous! Apparently though, I totally could have and it would dry up just fine.
I did get mine a bit wet and full of sand. The moisture dried off quickly and all the sand slid right off. I also was able to stick it in my beach bag without worrying. I can imagine this Bible would be super handy to have in many circumstances.
I love mine and definitely highly recommend the Waterproof and Outdoor Bibles!
