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
