The Outdoor Bible is the flagship product for Bardin & Marsee Publishing, a small publishing company based in Canton, GA. Available in the New Testament and in the New American Standard Bible translation, this Bible’s claim to fame is that it is designed for the great outdoors. Made to be used by the outdoorsman, the Bible is printed on durable, tear-resistant plastic material, making it fully waterproof and able to withstand the rigors of the hiking, camping and other activities. It comes packaged in a small burlap bag, a digitized camouflage bag or a God’s country camouflage bag (which is camouflage but with a picture of a cross on it). The product includes six volumes, each of which is folded like a map on 10″ x 13″ sheets and contains one or more books of the Bible (Volume 1 – Matthew and Mark, Volume 2 – Luke, Volume 3 – John, Volume 4 – Acts and Romans, Volume 5 – 1 Corinthians thru Philemon, Volume 6 – Hebrews thru Revelation).
THE OUTDOOR BIBLE® is printed on 100% plastic material, which makes it a fully waterproof Bible. It can be rained on, snowed on, or fully submerged in a body of water – with no damage.
THE OUTDOOR BIBLE® is made to withstand the rigors of the outdoors – whether used on a backcountry trail, a boating trip, or at a park with your family – THE OUTDOOR BIBLE® will endure your chosen adventure.
THE OUTDOOR BIBLE® will maintain its form during everyday handling and is resistant to typical outdoor wear and tear.
The Bible can be submerged in water or even frozen without adversely affecting it. Because it is plastic and waterproof, the Bible has a possible application for those who do not spend a great deal of time in the outdoors. It can be flattened and pressed against the wall of a shower where it should stick and make for good reading in the shower.
I quite like this piece of ChurchMerch. It fills a niche and does so in style and with a solid translation of the Bible. It is a great product to consider for the outdoorsman in your life. The only real drawback I can think of it is that the type is quite small and would be difficult to read in low-light situations. Beyond that small complaint, I consider it a fine product.
