Waterproof Bible Review and Giveaway


Kids, especially boys, are messy.  Kids don't always think before they act.  Kids love water.  For all these reasons, I always get a little nervous when I let my children look at one of our 'adult' Bibles.  I hate the thought of ruining such a precious book because of one spilled glass of water or a page turned too forcefully.  So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that there is a Bible that can take my worries away!  Have you heard of the Waterproof Bible from Bardin Marsee Publishing?  Their vision is for you to "take God's word into all of His creation, regardless of the weather or circumstances."  Now granted, this Bible was created with the adventurer in mind, but I think that 4 year old boys are adventures in and of themselves, coming with their own self-made weather and circumstances, so I was excited to try this out!

I wanted to see if this waterproof Bible could stand up to a day in the life of a 4 year old boy.  What do you think?  Spoiler Alert: it does!  But continue reading to see everything that this Bible made it through in 24 hours and enter to win one of your own!

A Day in the Life of a Four Year Old Boy

 



First up, breakfast.  Sounds safe enough, but with juicy watermelon and sticky syrup, I wouldn't have let a regular Bible anywhere near him!  No fear here, though. Since the Waterproof Bible's pages are made out of synthetic materials, any liquid (even sticky syrup!) wipes right off.  Looks like it passed the breakfast test...check!




Next on the schedule, play time.  Of course the easily distracted 4-year-old boy would take the Bible to play with him by the hose...and leave it there for his 2-year-old sister to have her way with.  Is it going to stand up to a 2-year-old with a hose?




I guess she wanted to perform a test for some real scientific comparison.  Results?  The coloring book paper was useless after being sprayed with water (obviously), but the Bible was as good as new!  It passed the playtime test too...check!




The day is almost done, but there's still time for one final, ultimate test...some underwater Bible reading!  I mean, if the Waterproof Bible can withstand this, it can withstand anything!  My son thought this was a hoot!  Check out the video below to see how the Bible fared after it's bath.

My only slight critique is that when the Bible was submerged in water for a few minutes, it took a little while for it to completely dry off.  The pages didn't turn as cleanly until it was fully dried, but once it was dry it was back to normal!

  25. Well, I'm sure it would get a lot of "normal" usage, but having children that are 11 months, 3 years, 5 years..., that would be the one I hand to the children for use at church & during devotionals.
