WASHINGTON (WNEW) — A company has created a “virtually indestructible” version of the Bible and promises that it’ll last a lifetime.

On a Kickstarter fundraising page, the company, Forever Publishing, is claiming that the book “literally walks on water.” Calling it the Forever Bible, the company also claims the book is eco-friendly and that it’s tear-proof and dirt-proof.

“Using Space Age nanotechnology, we are able to print the Bible on an advanced paper that doesn’t use any trees, is 24X stronger than regular paper, and is completely waterproof, dirt-proof, tear-proof, and otherwise life-proof,” a statement on the Forever Publishing’s Kickstarter page stated. “The Forever Bible even floats in water, while keeping your notes and highlighted passages pristine.”

The Kickstarter campaign launched by Forever Publishing is running for 40 days and 40 nights, a play on the story in the Bible about Noah and the Ark when it rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The company has raised more than $25,000 and has 21 days left to meet the goal of $30,000.

The Bible will be offered in three different translations and available in the King James Version, the New International Version and the English Standard Version.

“We’ve designed a Bible that can withstand every rigor of an active lifestyle, so that you can take your Bible wherever you go, for the rest of your life,” Forever Publishing promised on its Kickstarter page.
