A Waterproof Bible Worth Owning

A good friend gave me a waterproof New Testament before I rafted through the Grand Canyon in summer 2011, and several of my friends have been loving these Bibles for reading in the shower and bathtub. (I won’t name them!)

I remember freaking out when one of my friends demonstrated that it really is waterproof: he walked over the sink, turned the water on full blast, and stuck his Bible under the faucet! No harm done. Amazing.

Here’s how the publishers describe these Bibles:

The Waterproof Bible and THE OUTDOOR BIBLE originate from our desire to take God’s word into all of His creation, regardless of the weather or circumstances. That is why they are completely waterproof, dry quickly, are much stronger than paper, are usable with writing utensils (ball point pen, pencil, or dry highlighter), and adapt well to all extremes or reading environments (on a rainy campout, in a coffee shop, even in a hot tub!). Just as a frog lives on land and in water, the Waterproof Bible and THE OUTDOOR BIBLE thrive in any situation or climate.

I recently acquired two more of them, one of the whole Bible and one of the New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs.

They’re available in five English translations:

  1. When I first starting reading this post, I thought it was a joke!

    It is dirt-resistant? Does it clean up well?
