Waterproof Bible ~ Review

Waterproof Bible?  Seriously?


I had never heard of such a thing and my curiosity went bonkers!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this Bible.  My 13 year old son and I awaited anxiously for its arrival.  One day he came running into the house with the package.  He could barely wait to open it.

Ta-Da!  I was thrilled with the color they sent me! PINK!

The teenaged boy.  Not so much.
"What?", he exclaimed in his most dramatic teen voice, "It's pink!".
We had a brief stare down.  
Stare at each other.  Stare at the Bible.  Stare at each other.  Stare at the Bible.
Rats!  The kid won!  He grabbed that Bible faster than me and tore off into his bedroom to check it out.  I didn't see that thing for two days.  He hid it in his room and only took it out to read in the secure cover of his bed and to take it in the shower with him.  
So much for "It's pink!"  blah blah blah.

I have barely had a chance to read it myself and, when I can, it is under the watchful eye of the new proud owner of a pink Waterproof Bible.  My son. He leaves it on his bathroom counter and takes it in the shower with him.  After his shower he likes to sit on the floor of his tub and read, enveloped in the steam and pool of water he has manage to collect.  One night he left it there in that partially filled tub...for experiment's sake for this review.

He is good about drying it like the directions describe.  He stands it up on its spine and fans out the pages.  Usually by the next day it is pretty dry or may need a little bit of a wipe down with a hand towel.  Good as new!  Now, back in for another shower baptism!

I did manage to (oops!) spill my coffee on it one morning.  It wiped right off even after I let it set on there for a while.  The liquid sort off rolls of the synthetic pages.  We also tried tearing the pages by flipping through it quickly or at odd angles much like a child would and....nope.  No tears.

Let's get the run down of what this Bible has to offer and what makes it unique.

  1. Wow that is so cool!!! I am always so paranoid that one of my kids are going to help me to spill my coffee on my Bible while I am reading it. I think I would love one of these, and I like that they come in KJV. This would be the PERFECT Bible to take camping and to the beach also. Thanks for sharing!
