Albany- Many people claim the words of God saved them, but it's not usually by taking a bullet.

A Hahira woman used a Bible she received in the mail to block a bullet.

Lowndes County Sheriff's investigators say Aubrey Beckton broke into his estranged wife's home off Georgia Highway 122 yesterday. When she came home, he fired a shot from a small caliber handgun.

The bullet lodged about three-fourths of the way through the Bible. The woman fell to the ground and played dead. Investigators say Beckton also fired two shots at a friend of his wife's who ran into the woods.

No one was hurt. Beckton escaped through woods in Northwestern Lowndes County. Deputies spent four hours searching for him yesterday and are still on the lookout tonight.
