Military Resource List: the Waterproof Bible Tops It

“This is why our Soldiers and Chaplains have long used the Waterproof Bible. It can go to the frontlines and back without being destroyed by the wear and tear that causes a regular paper Bible to fall apart.”

(BIRMINGHAM, AL)—Bardin & Marsee Publishing announces its NIV Waterproof Bible New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs has topped the list of the Top 25 Recommended Resources published by Military Ministry, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ International. The list can be found here.

Water proof Bible Soldiers and Chaplains have used the Waterproof Bible since 2006, and this recommendation will markedly expand its use. “Thank you for producing such a Bible that I’m sure will withstand the harsh Afghanistan climate,” said an Army Chaplain shortly before deploying with his Soldiers earlier this year. Another Soldier puts it this way “I love my Waterproof Bible. I can carry it with me where ever I go in my ACU cargo pocket. It helps me redeem those little fragments of time throughout the day by reading God’s word.”

Bardin & Marsee has recently partnered with the Norwegian Bible Society to produce a military Chaplain’s waterproof devotional titled PÅ PATRULJE SOLDATENS ANDAKTSBOK and with Bible Society New Zealand to publish a custom NLT New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs exclusively for the New Zealand Defence Force. “We are very excited to be working with the New Zealand Defence Force to produce a waterproof New Testament for Army, Navy and Air Force personnel,” said Stephen Opie, Programme Director for Bible Society New Zealand. Stephen continued, “The waterproof edition was chosen as it is more durable than a paper-based Bible, meaning it will serve Defence Force personnel better, especially when deployed overseas.”

At first appearance, the Waterproof Bible resembles a regular Bible, but on a second glance its durability shines through. “This is why our Soldiers and Chaplains have long used the Waterproof Bible. It can go to the frontlines and back without being destroyed by the wear and tear that causes a regular paper Bible to fall apart,” said Bobby Bardin, who co-owns Bardin & Marsee with his wife, Anna.

What began as a project to make a durable Bible for a few friends has turned into a growing niche within the Bible segment of Christian publishing. With Waterproof Bibles now available in 9 foreign languages and 5 English translations, NIV, ESV, NKJV, KJV, and NLT, Bardin & Marsee Publishing has seen significant growth since its inception in 2005. “God is doing great things through the Waterproof Bible, and this growth is a testament to that,” says Anna Bardin.

  1. I need one of these for when I fit in an extra reading time, during afternoon tea. My coffee table Bible has tea stains, because my wrists give out sometimes!!! But I am happy that I love the Word!
    Thanks for the interesting & encouraging post.

  2. This should show all of America that WE are a Christian nation. God Bless :)
