In Store Now - The Waterproof Bible

Could your Bible survive a week underwater? This Bible can--and did!

That's right, we put the Waterproof Bible to the test by placing it underwater for five days. It took about a day and a half to dry out. Once it was dry, it was completely back to its original condition. During the week people enjoyed pulling it out of the water to see how it was doing. While the pages stuck together quite a bit there were no wrinkled pages and no bleeding ink. A favorite activity during the week was to pull the Bible up and squeeze it, watching the water come pouring out. More than one person was skeptical that it would really return to its original condition. But it did.

What's the secret? The Waterproof Bible is printed on 100% plastic! So what does a plastic page feel like? It isn't stiff like you might think. They are actually just as pliable as normal paper. You can write on it with a ball point pen and you can even use a dry highlighter to mark your favorite passages. The binding is also sewn and is glued with a waterproof glue. Not only is it waterproof but it is also tear-resistant. It is heavier than your average Bible (especially the full Bible). The complete Bible would be perfect for a boat. The New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs is ideal for campers and hunters. It is available in KJV and NIV and comes in a variety of covers (Some individual books of the Bible are available in NAS. See the website for details.)

The same Bible is also published as The Outdoor Bible. The New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs sells for $24.95 and the complete Bible sells for $39.95.

We've got another one on display underwater. The next time you're in the store stop by and take a look for yourself.

Now if we can only find a way to preserve the Word in our hearts as well as under water.
Can Baker Book House work on that one? ;->
