Bibles, like anything made of mere paper, are prone to wear and tear, which is why one company has created a “virtually indestructible” version of the holy book.
Forever Publishing is promising that its Forever Bible is built to last a lifetime, claiming on its Kickstarter page that the book is eco-friendly, tear-proof and dirt-proof. In fact, it’s a book that the company claims “literally walks on water.”
“Using Space Age nanotechnology, we are able to print the Bible on an advanced paper that doesn’t use any trees, is 24X stronger than regular paper, and is completely waterproof, dirt-proof, tear-proof, and otherwise life-proof,” the company boasts. “The Forever Bible even floats in water, while keeping your notes and highlighted passages pristine.”
A promotional video shows just how resilient the book is:
Forever Publishing is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for 40 days and 40 nights — a play on the biblical story of Noah during which it rained for 40 days and 40 nights — in an effort to raise $30,000.
The Bibles are offered in three different translations to accommodate those who have specific linguistic preferences. It’s available in the King James Version (KJV), the New International Version (NIV) and the English Standard Version (ESV).
“We’ve designed a Bible that can withstand every rigor of an active lifestyle, so that you can take your Bible wherever you go, for the rest of your life,” Forever Publishing promises.
The company is offering other products on its website as well, including journals, pens and wristbands.
