Deadly tornado rips through college chapel but leaves Bible unscathed

A Bible miraculously emerged unscathed and opened on a telling passage after a tornado that was traveling at around 150 mph ripped through the chapel in which it was placed. 

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

Staff at William Carey University in Southern Mississippi were stunned when they found the holy book undamaged and in its original position despite the window next to it being smashed to pieces.

They were given a further shock when they found it opened to the encouraging passage on the school's pulpit while inspecting damage the morning after the storm last weekend.

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

Wilemon said the Bible's extraordinary survival has bolstered the spirits of the campus and in the wider area after the deadly storm claimed the lives of four people and destroyed a number of buildings in the area.

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