Bible found untouched after Mississippi tornado wreckage

by Staff writer



When a tornado battered southern Mississippi in January, it yanked trees off the ground and tore through buildings at William Carey University.


When staffers combed the campus, sifting through the damage, they said they happened upon a stunning scene: An open Bible on the pulpit of the campus church, undisturbed by the surrounding debris.



The open page from Psalm 46, the staffers said, read: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."


Rick Wilemon, an adjunct art instructor at the private Christian college, snapped some photos of the Bible as it was found in the otherwise-damaged Bass Chapel after the tornado storm.

"No building was left untouched," Wilemon told CNN. "So many appear to be total losses."

Wilemon said the Bible was a fixture in the chapel. And the condition it was found in has bolstered the spirits of the campus -- and beyond.

"It is remarkable that something so inspiring to our community is also inspiring to the nation," Wilemon said.
