Your Bible may be the most important book you own. You may use it daily for Bible study, weekly in church, or maybe only as a source for inspiration or comfort. Most people own their Bibles for many years and some Bibles are even passed down through generations. Regardless of how or what you use it for, your Bible needs to be kept in good condition and a Bible cover is an excellent way to provide this.
There are many different covers available. They come in different sizes, are made from different materials and have other options available. Just as there are some Bible covers that men may prefer, there are some that women definitely will prefer.
There seems to be a larger variety of covers available for women. Some are very practical and serviceable while others make more of a fashion statement. They may come with zippers and handles and could also be used as purses. Women will also use tote bags to carry their Bibles in. No matter what, unprotected Bibles need a good cover. It prevents the Bible from gathering dust, reduces the risk of wear and damage and can help decrease the number of wrinkled pages.
Leather is always a good choice. It is durable and can have different finishes. Leather covers can be embossed and are also available in different colors. Handles and zippered pouches are also options with leather covers. Lambskin covers are soft and supple, and tend to be more expensive. Leather covers will vary in price, but are usually a good choice and a good value.
Woven tapestry covers are another good choice for women. They will fit most standard Bibles. Many have a specific Bible verse or an inspirational saying woven into the design. These covers can show your individuality.
Tote bags can also make good Bible covers. They will cover your Bible while you carry it from one place to another. Many totes have zippered pockets inside or out and over sized totes may double as a purse and Bible cover. If the straps are long enough they can even be used as a shoulder bag.
Bible covers are also available in faux leather. There are several different color options available. Most have zipper closures, two handles and some may have pen holders or zippered pouches inside.
To really express yourself, or for a designer look, there are trendier covers available. One such cover is a Leopard print design with black faux trim. If you like Zebra it is available with red or black faux leather trim. These covers all come with a zippered closure and interior pockets. They make a great fashion statement.
Your precious possession- your Bible – cover it well.
