The latest on the Waterproof Book of Mormon project

The latest on the Waterproof Book of Mormon project

Imagine, a book that can withstand the passage of time... waterproof, stain-proof, mildew-proof, tear-proof, and chemical resistant—the Waterproof Book of Mormon is guaranteed to last at least 500 years! That's beyond your tenth generation from now.

Printed on completely waterproof pages, it's perfect for missionaries, campers, hunters, missionaries, preppers, or anyone who spends time out in the elements and reads the Book of Mormon. This take-anywhere book is built differently—for the latter days.

We are grateful to those who backed this project on Kickstarter. With your continued help—all of you—our faithful readers, supporters, and buyers, we will be able to achieve the dream of publishing a truly waterproof (nearly bulletproof) edition of this latter-day book of scripture.

The big breakthrough that happened just days before our Kickstarter expired was full permission from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Intellectual Reserve Inc. (IRI) to use the current edition of the Book of Mormon and the familiar navy-blue cover with gold embossed titling. This is a huge development because it means we can pursue this same treatment in every language of the Church until we have flooded the world with books that can survive floods and all manner of calamities and tribulation.

The book is printed on state-of-the-art "stone" paper, comprised of powdered limestone bonded together in a polymer matrix that is entirely waterproof. This material is durable, strong, and designed to last.

We will be using the official 2013 text of the Book of Mormon, (minus 178 pages of appendices and pronunciation guides, etc.) making it, at once, the most updated and most compact edition available.

For those of you who so kindly and generously pledged heard-earned resources to help us in the Kickstarter, we are asking you pledge again, the same amount (or more, if you feel so inclined) by clicking here.
