Waterproof Survivalist Bibles

Do you carry a Bible in you Bug Out Bag?

The Bible

Many survivalists, POW’s and military have attributed their survival to faith. Faith can get you through some of the toughest situations that life can throw at you. This is why carrying a bible is an important resource to the survivalist.

A bible is a great addition to your survival kit, bug out bag, or hiking backpack. In a moment of crisis, it can be just the thing you need to calm your mind and give you hope. If you do decide to start carry a bible in your bag, think about getting a waterproof one. Regular Bibles don’t really hold up to the elements.

  1. I think this is a very good idea. I didn’t know they even had a waterproof bible!

    That’s why these sites are so important to me…I’m always learning something!

    • Good choice on the King James. I is a word for word translation, not a paraphraise. The one I recomend is the Expositors Study Bible. It is KJV and has helps mixed right in the verses. It is available from Jimy Swaggart Ministries.

  2. This would take up room in your bag unless you have no fire starter but there are better alternitives. You could be more proavtive without a bible. Instead of “praying” you can be planing your next step for survival. Instead of wasting your time reading some old desert scriblings you could be getting away from danger. a bible doesnt teach you anything about how to purify water or teach you what plants to eat or not to eat. It cant save you from any of the harms of nature like avalanches, flash floods, forest fires, grizzly bears, earthquakes, tordanos, mountin lions, snakes, ext. ext. if you really need a reashuring voice i would reccomend a radio or a walkie talkie.

    • I think this is a wonderful idea! The Bible (for those who truly read it) is a survival guide that prepares us for what comes after this earthly existence ends!For those of you who find it pointless, why waste your time trying to survive when you don’t believe in anything to look forward to. Any true christian’s bugout bag will always have a place for God’s word. A bible is absolutely essential to retart our civilization again and teach new generations the power of faith, hope, charity and love. It should always be a top priority in anyones survival kit! Just remember, the weight of all our sins that He carried is far heavier than any book!

    • So right, Jonny! Sitting around hoping that the act of reading an old book will convince some sort of sky fairy to help you is ridiculous. Especially when the book you’re reading says that the sky fairy created the calamity you’re having in the first place!

      • The sky fairy says the opposite. Why are there people ignorant of the concept of free will and the impact that others major decisions have on the rest of us. God isn’t santa, a fairy or godmother. We are not slaves to that “fairy”, we are free to choose… Choices that get a whole lot of us in trouble.

    • Are you even reading? It said that faith can get yiu through anything. The bible gives you hope. Okay lets say you know how to do these things, but you have no faith and hope that you will survive. The next thing your going to do is to give up. That is why it is needed you stupid non-reading person

    • Your right. The psychological asscept of survival is a non topic. Ask Bushmen, p.o.w.s, incarcerated, longt-trip backpackers/snowshoers, wilderness trainers. Your clear apparent disdain for others life philosophies are secondary to your opinion. Survival is about water, food, shelter… Actual living through any storm of life is a dumb idea.

    • The Bible may not teach you about how to do some of the things you listed, but God can. This is where prayer comes in. The Bible gives examples of where He showed people how to survive. This builds faith, and faith gives both a psychological advantage and fuels the will to seek God for wisdom. James 1:2-8

  3. Honestly, I think this is a terrible idea. Not because you shouldn’t rely on faith; I’m extremely faithful, and I’d want God by my side in a desperate situation. But a bible takes up a lot of space, when smaller items of faith are easily available… Perhaps a rosary? Or a small cross? You could probably fit that in there easily, and then have room for a more informational book.

    • Some of us Christians don’t use rosarys or crosses. We read the word of God and worship Him through song and prayer. So I would definitely need a bible and a book a hymns even. Sorry to dissapoint your gods bro but I don’t worship false idols.

  4. many bibles are compact,especially if you pick out one for survival ,that would be first thing to look for ,size then,
    weight, and durabilaty.

  5. I am working with a friend to put a preparedness supply business together.

    A good pack bible is one of the first things I thought of to make available to our customers.

    I fully believe that God will sustain even this old man wherever He sees fit for me to travel, ESPECIALLY if I am sure to bring His word with me.

    Signed,
    A Patriot with 6 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes of food stored up.

  6. Man must learn to rely on himself. Reading bibles will not protect him from the blasts of winter, but houses, fires, and clothing will. To prevent famine, one plow is worth a million sermons, and even patent medicines will cure more diseases than all the prayers uttered since of the beginning of the world.
    – Robert G Ingersoll

    • 3 seconds without hope, 3 minutes without air/in icy water, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food will lead to death. If you have ever been in a survival situation with seemingly no hope, believe me the psychological aspect of survival is the worst. Even with the knowledge or rescue the loneliness will cut you down. I’ve been there. Ask Les shroud, watch his survival shows. A bible is better than a saw, a shovel or an emergency foil blanket… Of course I want my bush knife, my Life Straw, and some protein.

  7. I’m not arguing its a horrible thing to carry because of faith. While I’m not religious, I know some are. To me it just sounds like a horrible waste if space and energy to carry it. A plant guide, or something of that nature would be much more useful to you. To me that space is extra food, water, or knowledge that will keep your ass alive. If your faith is strong enough you believe you need to carry it, it should be strong enough to sustain without carrying it.

  9. I got a Kindle and have my Bible on that because it takes up less room. Just got a Pocket Socket charger. I’m loading the Kindle with all my prepper reference materials.

  10. A bible isn’t nessecary, and it’s kind of biased, personally I’m an atheist prepper, I know many preppers that are of other religions that Christianity, so why not call it just reading or a “religious book”

  11. I think that a bible must NOT be overlooked. It is indeed part of survival. Either to read in the mean time, but also, apart from the religious views, some stories in the bible deal with survivalism. Stories like Joseph, Jacob, David, Elijah, John the Baptist, Gedeon, etc., there are passages that tells what people did to survive and to fight.

    It is not only for a religous view, interpretation, etc.,

    You should read it to understand what I mean.

  12. I’m looking for a full compact waterproof kjv bible, do you have them? if not do you know where i can find/buy one?

  13. Honestly, I know people would want God on their side but a bible would take a lot of space. Have a cross or something. Then you can repel vampires wile your at it.

  14. For those asking why would someone who is not religious want to bother surviving, I’m not religious myself but i believe you are asking the question wrong. You should ask why would someone who IS religious bother surviving? If you believe in a wonderful blissful existence beyond this why bother to fight on and suffer in WROL times? Give away all your supplies to other people and spend your final days reading your bible. This is not a hate post. I’m just staying if you fully believe in a wonderful afterlife of some sort why even try to survive in such a case?
