The Waterproof Bible

Have we gotten to the point where we really need this?

Immerse: A Water-Resistant New Testament bible has been released.  The water resistant NIV translation claims it can “go anywhere you go!” The first-ever water-resistant Bible is available in some sweet colors like lime green or vibrant orange.  The book claims to have 100% water-resistant pages and a zipper for enclosing all of the truths contained in the Old Testament.  This is a “wonderful addition to any mission trip, a weekend at the beach, hiking, or even when you get baptized!”  Listen to this.  The book claims that, “as you read the pages of the Bible you will be immersed in God’s love for you and His wonderful plan for your life!”

Wow.  Check it out or buy a used copy for yourself at seven bucks here.

What will they think of next?

    I can’t tell if you are promoting this Bible, or condemning it, but, I know that I try to take a Bible with me everywhere. The word should be part of your life (is should be hidden in our heart Ps 119:11), not told to you by someone. These are not the days of Latin scriptures chained to the altar as they were with the catholic church during the middle ages. These are the days that we are to search the scriptures daily Acts 17:11. I live a very active lifestyle, and most of it i spend outdoors, if you look at my Bibles many are damaged by water. Not through negligence, but because of my topless Jeep, or camping trips, or canoing trips, etc. So in short(er), yes there IS a need for this type of Bible…

    The best bible you have is the one you read…

    waterproof or not.

    In answer to your question….yes…if it means reaching people for God, most definitely. That is what the Bible tells us, is it not Pastor?

    I think we do need this… I just saw a presentation at Church this morning on the homeless and many of them kept and read tattered old copies of bibles. I’m thinking of buying these for some of them…

    sure, i think it’s a great idea, one i would try to pitch myself if it wasn’t already on the market.

    outdoorsy folk like myself could definitely benefit from having a more rugged Bible. I like to take a Bible kayaking and then read it in a peaceful spot on the lake.

    there is a world of Christian merchandise out there which seeks to make a buck off a willing audience my slapping Jesus’ name on it, or a fish, or a Bible verse. I have no love for that kind of thing. but this seems practical and just makes it that much easier to read the Bible at any time, anywhere.

    By the tone of your review I’m guessing that you don’t spend a whole lot of time outdoors, and that’s okay. Just remember that there is a whole segment of the population who makes their living outdoors. There is also an even bigger group of people (sportsmen and women) who chose to spend a great portion of of their free time out in God’s creation. Personally, I am preparing for outdoor ministry so you can guess how excited about this product. Also I loved the idea about using it as part of an outreach to the homeless, and I know that the publishers are actively encouraging it to be used in outreach to members of the military. In short there are a whole lot of people who really do need a Bible that is more durable than the traditional onionskin paged versions. I’ll admit that there are some products that are targeted to the “Jesus bandwagon” but this one fulfills a genuine need.

    I’m getting ready to go to Ranger School and was glad I found a waterproof bible so I can take it with me while in the swamps of Florida. So yes, we need something like this. Don’t ever condemn someone with a good idea when it comes to the word or God, not all of us have the privledge of staying in our study while we read the word of God.

    I love the honesty of this thread. We were in Andrew’s shoes several years back about wanting to take the Bible backpacking and kayaking with us. That is when we created The Outdoor Bible which is 100% WATERPROOF unlike Immerse. Our desire since then is for people to Be Inspired. Anywhere. We have lots of our Bibles that have been through Ranger School with people like Abe. We have people that do buy them to give to the homeless like CL mentioned. We now publish a line of NIV products simply called Waterproof Bible. I could go on and on but I will leave it at that.
