I have never heard of a waterproof book, much less a waterproof Bible! I received a waterproof Bible from Bardin and Marsee Publishing to try out and review. I received an ESV New Testament copy to review.
I had a really hard time putting this review to the test. It is a BIBLE afer all!! I didn't want to try to soak it, or rip it, or get it all dirty, but the publishers say it can handle it, so test we did.
My kids had a blast with this. We dunked it under the water in the bath tub, we wrang it out, let it dry, and did it over and over again.
I couldn't believe it! The Bible returned to Normal every time.
These Bibles are 100% waterproof inside and out. They are made with 100% synthetic materials.
I took the following paragraphs from the website so that you can get an idea of the company.
The Waterproof Bible and THE OUTDOOR BIBLE originate from our desire to take God's word into all of His creation, regardless of the weather or circumstances. That is why they are completely waterproof, dry quickly, are much stronger than paper, are usable with writing utensils (ball point pen, pencil, or dry highlighter), and adapt well to all extremes or reading environments (on a rainy campout, in a coffee shop, even in a hot tub!). Just as a frog lives on land and in water, the Waterproof Bible and THE OUTDOOR BIBLE thrive in any situation or climate.
As believers in Jesus Christ and a love to be in God's creation and exposed to the elements, we have often desired to have a Bible by our side for reading here and there. Our exploring has led us to mountain tops, river banks, sandy beaches, misty valleys, dark caves, and hot springs, and has caused us to become soaked to the core while backpacking or paddling. I hate to admit that our Bible has not made it with us on many of these occasions for the sake of protecting it and because we don't trust a plastic bag not to puncture. Now we can put an end to all the worrying that we have done in the past about our Bibles and take God's Word wherever our adventures lead.
Wherever life takes you - carry the Waterproof Bible or THE OUTDOOR BIBLE and Be Inspired. Anywhere.

You can take these Bibles anywhere. You can get them wet and muddy and it will go back to perfect condition. These Bible pages will not rip either. I tried to rip a page and it didn't rip. All it did was stretch a little.
I highly encourage everyone to get one of these Bibles. I encourage you to get everyone in your family one.
The prices range from $24.95 for the New Testaments to $44.95 for the full version.
