A 54-year-old Florida man credits two small Bibles in his shirt pocket with saving his life when they stopped a bullet. The man, whose name was withheld because his attackers are still at large, told Orange Park police that two men he did not recognize ambushed him with a rifle as he carried bags of garbage to a trash bin. He says his attackers then fled in opposite directions. The man said the bullet was stopped by two New Testaments that he was carrying in his shirt pocket to give to friends. Police took them as evidence. The Florida Times-Union reports that aside from a red mark and a pain in his chest, the man was not injured.
