Soldier's Bible stops sniper's bullet

clipped from

Baghdad, Iraq - A 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.

This happened two weeks ago.

He's now already out of the hospital and on light duty.

He has received a Purple Heart.

Thank the Lord this young man loved the Lord enough to keep his Bible close to him! Otherwise, he may not be in as good a shape as he is.
