Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

After a one-week hiatus, we are back with another edition of Free Stuff Fridays. This week’s sponsor is Bardin & Marsee Publishing and the prize they are offering is a mite unusual. They have offered up six copies of The Waterproof Bible. Now this is the kind of product that might lead you to immediately roll your eyes; but hang on for a moment. The Waterproof Bible is simply a Bible that is, well, waterproof. Available in the NIV and KJV, it is regular-sized Bible but one that you can take with you anywhere. The pages are very difficult to tear and, as you’d expect, you can drop it in the ocean and it will be just fine. The copy they sent to me shipped already-wet just to prove that this Bible truly is not going to get soggy.

Here is Bobby Bardin’s story of how he came to see the need for a waterproof Bible:

As a believer in Christ and one that has always loved to be in God’s creation exposed to the elements, I have often desired to have my Bible by my side for reading here and there. My exploring has led me to mountain tops, river banks, sandy beaches, misty valleys, and hot springs, and has caused me to become soaked to the core while backpacking or paddling. I hate to admit that my Bible has not made it with me on many of these occasions for the sake of protecting it and because I don’t trust a plastic bag not to puncture. Michael and I have been talking about how awesome it would be to have a waterproof Bible for many years now, and we have finally decided to produce it ourselves. 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.

To make this happen, Michael, Anna (my wife), and I have formed Bardin & Marsee Publishing, LLC to produce the world’s first waterproof, rugged, and tear resistant Bibles. We hope that you find heaps of enjoyment reading God’s Word in all weather environments.

Bardin & Marsee have kindly offered up six copies of the NIV Waterproof Bible for this giveaway so there will be, of course, six winners.
