The Bible is the best-selling book of all times. Most Christian families own one, some families or individuals own several. It is a prized possession that can be passed to future generations. Whether you own just one or several, the Bible needs good protection. This can be achieved with a Bible cover.
If you’re savvy and creative, consider creating your own Bible cover. Before you go out and purchase material from your local fabric store, consider writing down what kind of material/accessories you want included and the overall look of the cover. If you need assistance, take a look at current covers that are available for purchase or research cover designs online. The next step would be to purchase all the necessary material at your local store and follow a “How to Make A Bible /Book Cover” guide. There are several tutorials available online to follow.
If you are looking to take the easy route and simply purchase a Bible cover, there is no shame in that! You’ll protect your Bible much more quickly than creating your own. You lose a bit of the personalization; however there are many great covers available for purchase to fulfill your needs. While Bible covers come in several types of fabrics including special material such as lambskin and nylon, the majority of these covers are composed of leather, suede, or microfiber.
Manufacturers today have amped up their design by providing styles and types that cater to personal tastes. In addition to creating new designs, they have maintained the old-fashioned black leather covers that equally protect your treasured Bible. Many of the covers available today include a strap for easy carrying and of course a main compartment for book storage. Out of the designs available, there are several camouflage-designed cases, female friendly prints and colors (zebra print, alligator print, pink and aqua hues), teen friendly prints and colors (flowered or sporty, hip designs) and child friendly prints and colors (animal and flower prints).
Bible cover designs are also including special features these days. Some covers/organizers are larger in size, designed to include several exterior and internal organizational pockets for items such as study books, pens and notepads. Other designs also include reversible material that allows for owners to change up the look!
Whatever your style, whatever features you require, there are many available covers that will protect your Bible from the elements. And there is no other book that should last the test of time and natural wear and tear.
