Waterproof Bible Review

Waterproof Bible-The Unlikely Homeschool

Woo-hoo!  Finally a book that will stand the wear and tear of my rough-and-tumble household...and better yet, IT'S A BIBLE!  Yep, that's right!  I was given the opportunity to check out the ESV Waterproof Bible from Bardin & Marsee Publishing.  

If you could have been at my house to witness the "bowl of flying banana oatmeal" incident today, you'd know how excited I was to receive my very own WORRY FREE Bible.  Made from entirely synthetic materials, the Waterproof Bible is completely LIQUID PROOF and STAIN RESISTANT.  But, I suppose, that is something you have to see to believe.  Check it out...



What I liked

As I mentioned in my video, I obviously love the NO WORRIES feature.  But really, what momma wouldn't love something that is guaranteed to REPEL stains?  Also, my normal everyday "work horse" Bible is quite large because it is a study Bible.  I appreciate the smaller, user-friendly size of the Waterproof Bible for easy travel.  As I was carrying it about town, I had several friends ask if it was difficult to turn the synthetic pages.  Absolutely not!  In fact, I find the heavier weighted pages easier to turn than the normal tissue paper-style of typical Bibles.  In addition, the synthetic quality makes them nearly impossible to rip.  With a baby on my lap during much of the church service, a rip-free page is w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l!

Who would want one?

Apart from busy moms who have kids who will be...kids...I would also recommend this Bible for:
  • kids going to summer camp
  • extreme sport enthusiasts who would take their Bible into the elements
  • youth workers who take church "on the road" for youth events
  • folks, like me, who tend to be more klutzier than the norm

  1. Thanks for the review! I saw these at the bookstore a couple of weeks ago and wondered if they really were waterproof. As a "klutzy" mom of five kids, it might be nice to have a Bible that could withstand coffee spills, toddler hands, and camping trips!

  2. Two words for why it would be beneficial to me: Two boys :)

  6. I love the ESV version and always leave my Bible in the kitchen so I can grab it quickly when I have some down time. This Bible would be great to keep readily available in my kitchen without having to worry about spills.

  9. The waterproof Bible would be of great use to me when we are camping with our Venture Crew & American Heritage Girls. We could use this Bible out in nature and not worry about it getting wet/damp. It would also be great to take to the beach!

  10. I have 5 (soon to be 6) kids. That should say enough! And my Bible should be the center of everything we do, which would mean it's gonna get dirty. Would love a copy that I felt safe leaving on my kitchen counter.

  14. I have a daughter who loves to take any container filled with liquid and "make a mess" by dumping it upside down. I would love to use this bible during out breakfast bible study. It would provide me no worries about what I left out on the table if I walked away. Thanks for the give away.

    The video was not working when I did this.

  18. I would absolutely LOVE one of these bibles, both for the waterproof and tearproof! Whether from my own coffee/soda addiction, or my occassionally messy kids (and did I mention hubby, lol), this would be great to have! My current bible has about had it (falling apart inside of bible holder) so this would be a wonderful replacement!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would love one of these as we are constantly spilling over here. So far our Bible has escaped unharmed but I know it is just a matter of time. :) thank you for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This would be great for me, since I have 4 little ones and my kitchen table is always a mess. Spills are pretty common around here!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love to win one cause I have been wanting a "grown up Bible" for some time now. I still have my "teen" Bible. I just can't bring myself to spend money on another one.

    ReplyDelete
  22. THIS IS AMAZING FOR MOMS WITH SMALL CHILDREN...MY DAUGHTER IN LAW HAS 2 SMALL ONES...I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE THIS TO HER...

    ReplyDelete

  24. This is an amazing idea! I had a small bible I carried in my purse for years (in a ziploc bag) but one day I didn't put it back in the bag and I was stuck in the rain...needless to say, it's not so small anymore! Not to mention, having four littles, there wouldn't be so many discolorations in my good book!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love this idea and hope to see more formats (sizes) available.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would like it because it would not have all the stains my current one has from spilled coffee, and little fingers.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have not seen a waterproof Bible so this would be awesome! I also do not have the ESV yet and would like to add that to my different versions for study. Thank you for a great giveaway!

  28. I could give it to one of my children without worry that they would accidentally destroy it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. A waterproof Bible would be great for my morning tea time, devotion time with a 3 year old climbing on my lap. This would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It would be beneficial to me because I have children!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We would use this for our homeschool Bible. It would be nice to not have to worry about anything ruining it & we could take it any where! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am just learning about these. Would totally fit into my crazy busy but wonderful life. Thanks for the useful review!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I will read it in the shower to save time. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love having my cup of coffee with me while reading my bible, and this would be a safe way to do so! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This would make it so much easier to read God's Word. Take it in the bath, to the pool, or with a cup of coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would use it every where. It looks like a wonderful bible to take along with out worry you will ruin it. I could use it lots of places.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is awesome! We're missionaries in Tanzania and this would be great for our living conditions. I wish they had them in Kiswahili!

  38. Five years ago I spilled peptobismol on my bible on a particularily rough car trip. I still use that bible to this day and would love to replace it with something more durable.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a close friend who goes caving. A waterproof Bible would be perfect

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would love to be able to read my bible in the bathtub without fear of dropping it in!! Love that you can mark in it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would love to have a bible that I could take with me on our homeschool "adventures" and around the house without having to worry about damages.

    ReplyDelete
  42. These look great! I would use this everywhere! It would especially be great for outside adventures like camping and hiking, or at the beach.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bring it camping and to the pool. Love this waterproof Bible... would love to try it

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would use this in 2 ways. 1) My daughter is 18 months. It is hard to read because... well if there is any water around, she will find it and spill it on me. Seriously, she is like a water magnet. So this would be super useful. As she grows, it would be perfect to hand it over to her with my notes in the margin. A keepsake that can go with her camping, to church, and wherever else she takes it. I will not have to worry about her reading at the table and spilling soda on it totally messing it up, which with a child is inevitable...lol. This is such a brilliant idea. So glad someone finally thought of it.

  45. Having an take anywhere Bible is essential for a homeschool mom!
