The Great Bible Cover-up: Why You Should Join In

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

Cover up your Bible! It’s not about putting your biblical light under a bushel; it’s about keeping your precious Bible safe, clean and always ready for use with a practical, fashionable and effective Bible Cover.

Your Bible is precious and valuable; but its delicate pages wear out quickly enough just through constant use - you don’t need any help from the effects of the weather, rough handling in carrying it with you or accidental damage.

What you need is a Bible cover that’s easy to use, styled to suit the way you live and read the Bible and keeps your Bible safe and ready to use. Here’s what to look for when choosing a Bible cover for yourself or as a gift for another.

Choose the Right Size for Your Bible.

Bible covers come in Large: usually up to about 10" x 8" x 3" and big enough for just about any popular Bible (choose Extra Large for giant print editions).

Medium covers: up to 9" x 6" x 1.5", will fit most personal, compact and slim-lines, while Small size covers: 8" x 5" x 0.5" are best for compacts, pocket and smaller print editions.

As a general guide, go for the larger sizes; you’ll always find something else to you’ll want to carry along with your Bible. And the larger the capacity of your cover, the less strain you’ll put on the zip and on the pages of the Bible your trying to protect.

Choose your Extra Features

Most covers include an internal pocket for those aids to your Bible reading: such as Page Markers, Study Notes and Bible Stationery. You’ll often find a pen loop too; but for extra stowage spacey, look for External Pockets or choose a Tote Bag Style for maximum capacity.

Additional features to look out for are how the cover fastens; do you favour zip-up security, or fold-over and stud-fasten convenience? And what kind of carry handle: a simple and compact Spine-Mounted Grip or a longer, Over-the-Shoulder Strap that leaves your hands free?

Choose Your Personal Style

There’s certain to be a cover that matches the person you are and the way you live; from Fashionable Colours and Patterns to Smart, Organiser Designs. Those who favour Traditional Leather, looks and Fabrics, or take a Youthful, Progressive approach to the scriptures will find their tastes and needs more than satisfied.

Remember: you want a cover that not only protects your Bible but shows that you value what’s inside. Choosing a cover that Attracts Attention and shows that your Bible is an essential part of who you are and how you live is the best way to becoming an effective witness.
