{Review} The Waterproof Bible by Bardin & Marsee

I must admit, I was a bit hesitant to fully test out this Bardin & Marsee resource in my review for Mosaic Reviews. I watched the videos on the website. I looked at the impressive photos. I just could not imagine submerging an entire Bible in water.

The Waterproof Bible is hailed as being 100% Worry Free inside and out. It truly is! I did not realize that durable Bibles such as this Waterproof Bible existed and I am thankful for the opportunity to review this resource. I reviewed the smaller version of New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. I loved it so much that I am going to order a full-size one for family use.

What I enjoyed about the Waterproof Bible:
  • It scored serious cool points with my family
  • It is available in several popular versions
  • Full-size Bible editions are available for purchase
  • You can take it outdoors for all sorts of activities (camping, hiking, parks, pools, etc.)
  • The New Testament version is easy to carry in a purse
  • You can take it to coffee shop meetings without worrying about spills
  • This Bible is toddler proof!
  • You can use a dry marker or pencil to make notes
  • It floats!
  • It is a great gift for family and friends in the military, missions, scouts, and outdoor lovers

We can take the Waterproof Bible outdoors without fear of it getting muddy, wet, or exposed to other elements. The compact size makes it very suitable to carry in a backpack for hiking and camping.

If you enjoy marking passages in your Bible, you can use a dry highlighter pencil. Regular liquid highlighter markers will wipe right off. This is one feature that helps make it toddler proof. All spills and accidental doodles wipe clean. The pages are durable and near the same thickness as regular paper. We did not attempt to rip the pages, but they did feel sturdy enough to withstand frequent use.

What you need to know before purchasing:

  • Several sizes are available for purchase
  • Several color options are available 
  • Your kids will want to test out this Bible in water and mud for fun
  • If you need a larger print size, you should order the full-size version

At first, Briyah wondered if we really should submerge the Waterproof Bible in water.

It even floats! That is a super handy feature if you take it fishing, swimming, or boating.

After submerging in the water, it dried out very quickly. The water beaded right off the pages. To fully dry, you just stand it on the side and it will dry out completely.

Our family loves the great outdoors! The Waterproof Bible is a unique resource that we can feel confident to take with us on our many adventures. I am now inspired to plan our next camping trip!
