A soldier in Iraq found that carrying his Bible came in quite handy:
US soldier serving in iraq believes his Bible saved his life after it stopped a sniper's bullet.
22-year-old Army Private First Class Brendan Schweigart had his Bible tucked in a pocket beneath his bullet proof shield when he was shot with a high powered rifle while on a mission in Iraq.
The bullet missed his vital organs, came out his chest, and lodged in his Bible before it could do more damage.
I suspect that's a copy he'll be hanging on to.
