When you find a bible on the dump, you only have a few options. Firstly, you can throw it back or take it home? I’m not religious, but I wasn’t for throwing it back. Whatever your persuasion, a bible is a sacred object.
So I took it home. It sat there for a while, gathering dust. I’d had a good look at it, inside and out. It was clearly once someone’s prized possession – it was immaculate and had been kept that way since 1974. It has someone’s name on the inside but I couldn’t quite make it out. Why would anyone throw away a bible? Especially one that clearly been treasured for so long.
So that’s where we start. With a bible, a load of questions and not many answers.
By this point, I’d decided to try and return it to it’s rightful owner. It feels too important to sit on my shelf. Among the self doubt, a lucky break sets us on the right path. But will it be enough to reunite our bible and its mystery owner of nearly 50 years?
