'Floating Bible' seen on display at Coptic Orthodox church in metropolitan Cairo
The "Floating Bible" is seen on a display inside the Coptic Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary in the Maadi suburb of Cairo. The Bible was found floating in the Nile River outside the church March 12, 1976. Despite being waterlogged, it was open to the page of Isaiah 19:25, a passage that in part reads, "Blessed be Egypt my people." This was interpreted as a special blessing for the church.
