Episcopal Priest Finds Book of Mormon in Trade Center Wreckage

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- An Episcopal priest, one of hundreds of ministers who volunteer as chaplains at ground zero in lower Manhattan, has collected dozens of bibles and other sacred books, including a copy of the Book of Mormon, from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. The books, which smell faintly of burnt plastic, are collected at the River street rectory of Rev. Andrew G. Osmun of St. Peter's Episcopal Church. Just three LDS Church members died in the World Trade Center, two on one of the planes that hit the building and another on the 108th floor. However, this Book of Mormon was more likely abandoned by one of the hundreds of LDS Church members who escaped from the buildings.
