Zondervan has created the Waterproof Bible in the NIV translation. Yeah, Waterproof. 100% waterproof to be exact. It comes in blue, pink, and camo. So, for all the people that say they do not have time to read the Bible, this eliminates the excuses. You can read this Bible in the pool, in the bathroom while shaving or brushing your teeth, in the shower, and you can take it anywhere. The pages are made out of a sort of plastic which allows water to run off and not ruin your Bible. You can read it at breakfast and spill your coffee on it (that is not recommended because you would be wasting your coffee.) You can read it in the rain or in the rain forest if you feel the need to get your Bear Grylls on. The excuse that one does not have the time to read the Bible is a direct result of selfishness. Everyone is given the exact same 24 hours in a day. The problem is that one does not have time, it’s that they do not want to make the time. So, what if you do have to adapt your schedule to find 30 minutes? Skip a show on TV or get off the internet and shut off your phone. The world will be fine without you for 30 minutes. Everyone wants to know God’s will for their life. He has already given it to us in the form of His Word. You must be willing to dive head first into the ocean of God’s Word and allow Him to speak to you through it. Zondervan made a website for the waterproof Bible if you would like to check it out:
I am partial to the ESV translation. However, there is still no excuse. You can find the ESV waterproof Bible on Amazon in blue wave, pink, and hunter camo.
