I use these covers for my working study Bible and other study books. They protect my books when I go outside in the dew for my morning study or to the woods for a relaxing read. They also protect my books from my chewing puppy when I leave my books beside my easy chair. The cover is nice enough to take to church but plain enough to be humble. I have a couple in different colors: black for my Bible and blue currently contains Vol 1 of the Anticene Fathers. Pay attention to the sizes and measure your favorite Bible for a nice tight fit.
