The most unique Bible you have ever read. First, the Old Testament is divided into the correct order as Jesus read (yes modern Bibles are not arranged in the right order, or have the correct amount of books). Next, this Bible has every word of God in RED in both the Old Testament and New! The author's own translation trying to marry easier to understand English with the style of the King James.

The King James Version is used, with the exception of Elizabethan words, such as "ye," "hast,"thy," etc., in some cases, changed to words presently used, making the Text much easier to understand.
Also, comments are included in the text as parenthetical insertions. Bible text is in black, comments are in red:
In the beginning (refers to the beginning of creation, or at least the creation as it refers to this universe: God, unformed, unmade, uncreated, had no beginning: He always was, always is, and always shall be)...

I should mention that I have tried running water over this Bible. The publisher's claims are accurate. Here's the "About this Bible" section from the copyright page:
The Waterproof Bible is printed on 100% plastic. This material is both waterproof and tear-resistant with normal use. This material is adversely affected by temperatures above 150 F. If this product freezes while wet, thaw before opening. This durable format can be dried with a towel or by standing on the spine with the pages up. Water will cause the pages to adhere to one another, but once dry, they will return to their original condition. Petroleum products can cause the ink of this product to smear, so keep it away from all such products, including bug spray.
I've seen this recommended for missionaries. It would indeed be a good Bible for such use. However, bug spray (especially that with high concentrations of DEET) should be kept away from the pages. If you get the spray on your hands, you could damage the Bible when reading.

Ya see, God loves this world so much, that He gave His one and only Son to die, so that every man, woman, boy, and girl who believes in Him will not die, but will be a-livin' forever" (John 3:16).Thanks to the Bible Versions Discussions/Dialogue group on Facebook, especially JH for this version notice.
"This paraphrase is not a Bible, but the hope and prayer is that a person might come to know Christ better and open a real Bible and get to know Him."So far, Proverbs, Matthew and Romans have been completed. Genesis 1 is available on the website of the Campfire Cowboy Ministries:
The outfit, which the Boss elected to call heavens and earth, hadn’t been surveyed, staked, nor fenced yet, and was kinda empty, and darkness covered all the tanks, springs, creeks, rivers and lakes. And the Spirit of the Boss was hovering over the surface of those waters.Campfire Cowboy Ministries also has a Facebook Page.
Thanks to DJ for notice of this version

If you read the Bible
And you are perplexed
You'll see I rhymed the text
