Fox News reports that a Bible saved the life of an Ohio bus driver after the man was shot twice in
the chest early Monday according to police.
Rickey Waggoner, a Dayton RTA bus driver, was making a mechanical fix outside
his bus when three assailants approached him and shot him in what appears to
have been a gang initiation, the Dayton Daily News reported.
Waggoner was shot twice in the chest at close range, but a contemporary
version of the Bible, titled "The Message," absorbed the bullets that
would otherwise have killed the 49-year-old bus driver, according to police
documents obtained by the newspaper.
"There was obviously some kind of intervention involved in this
incident because (Waggoner) should probably not be here," Dayton Police
Sgt. Michael Pauley told the paper at the scene.
Sgt. Richard Blommel of the Dayton Police homicide squad declined to comment
on the shooting when contacted by FoxNews.com.
Reached at his home in Lakeside, Mont., Eugene H. Peterson, author of
"The Message," told FoxNews.com that he was thrilled to know his book

about that happening during the second World War. I'm glad to be in the
Waggoner reportedly told police that one of the assailants was heard telling
another to kill the man "if you want to be all the way in the club."
Waggoner was shot in the leg after he tried to wrestle the weapon away from
one of the suspects, according to the newspaper. While another assailant
stabbed him in the arm, Waggoner was able to grab both the gun and knife,
prompting the suspects -- described as being 15 to 18 years old -- to flee.
Waggoner then sought refuge inside his bus, where he managed to call police.
