The New Living Translation
NLT Waterproof Bible

I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with the new NLT Waterproof Bible. This isn’t a Tyndale Bible, but of course we’re exicted whenever an NLT Bible comes out, and this one is particularly unique.  (We have an exciting lineup of Tyndale NLTs releasing this fall–watch this space for information and announcements)

The Waterproof Bible was created by a few cool outdoors-loving people. They wanted to be able to read the Bible anywhere, so they created this Bible with waterproof cover and pages. The best way I can describe the feel of it is that it’s like Tyvek, but thinner and smoother. Amazingly, this doesn’t keep you from being able to write on it, as you can use a pen or dry highlighter on the pages.

It’s clear that this Bible will be very durable. You could actually drop this Bible in a lake and not only would it be unscathed, but it would float to the surface for you to collect. Other than boating, they suggest that these Bibles (available in two sizes and three designs) would be great for camping, hot tubbing, and coffee shop-reading. (This is a good point–how many of us haven’t spilled coffee on a Bible or other book while drinking coffee?)

I tested it out by “accidentally” spilling my morning cup of tea on this Bible. It performed admirably–it easily cleaned off and still looks like new.

As tea drinking, backpacking, and Bible reading are three of my favorite activities, I’m sure I will get a lot of use out of the NLT Waterproof Bible.

As a military chaplain, I am TOTALLY going to get one of these, probably with the excellent looking cover they also show on their website.

Also, you’re teaser about new Tyndale releases is totally out of line. You can’t leave us hanging like that!! (grin)

Hi T.C., do you mean that cover that looks like leather? I thought that was a great idea too. Another neat thing they offer is custom covers for bulk orders.

Laura, yes, I was talking about the leather-looking cover. Very sharp looking, I thought. Since we do all our ministry on our National Guard base from the NLT (thanks, Operation Worship!!!), I’m going to get these editions for our staff. They look amazing.

Now, ahem, how about some details on those new releases, Laura 😉

The Bardin and Marsee Waterproof Bible is EXCELLENT. It can take whatever you throw at it. We give on away when we do our Outdoor Ministry “Predator Dynamics”. As you can guess it is in camo ;o) The one we give away is the NLT.

I am very familiar with the paper described here – it is indestructible! But I am surprised to hear of this edition; I thought only Tyndale had the rights to publish the NLT, which is why there is no NASB-NLT parallel Bible available..

I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this
site. I am hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts
by you in the future as well. In fact, your
creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own site now 😉

Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints
for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform
like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
