A Message From The Creators of The Waterproof Bible:
"The waterproof Bible originates from our desire to take God's Word into all of His creation, regardless of the weather or circumstances. That is why the WATERPROOF BIBLE is completely waterproof and durable, dries quickly, is much stronger than paper, and adapts well to all extremes or reading environment (on a rainy camp out, in a coffee shop, even in a hot tub!). Just as a frog lives on land and in water, the WATERPROOF BIBLE thrives in any situation or climate. In fact, it's the most durable Bible on earth. It features the complete text of the New International Version (NIV)- today's most read, most trusted modern English translation. Wherever life takes you carry the WATERPROOF BIBLE and Be Inspired. Any Where."

This Bible is adversely affected by temperatures above 150* F. If you live in a hot climate do NOT leave this Bible in the car. If this Bible freezes while wet thaw before opening. Water will cause the pages to stick to one another, but once dry they will return to their original condition. The DuraBook format can be dried with a towel or by standing on the spine with the pages up. Petroleum products can cause the ink to smear so keep it way from all such products.
"It's refreshing to see the Scripture available in such a durable format. The Waterproof Bible ensures that even on you wildest adventures, God's Word is with you."
~ Margaret Feinberg, Speaker & Author of Scouting the Divine: My Search for God in Wine, Wool, & Wild Honey

My Personal Opinion
The durability of this Bible is very impressive, its amazing that this edition is totally water proof. I love that this Bible can be washed off with out damage. I have always said that someone should publish a waterproof Bible. I am thankful that Bardin & Marsee Publishing has finally made this a reality. This would be a good edition for someone with severe allergies, because the allergens can be rinsed off. I recommend this Bible to anyone looking for a durable Bible.
The ink is 100% waterproof, but some of the ink did smear when I touched it after using hand lotion (Waterproof not lotion proof). Personally I don't see this as a problem, but I thought it would be a good idea to point this out that way people would know to wash their hands before touching the ink. I would like to note that the text is still very readable.
