An Ogden man is on a mission to rescue old family Bibles and reunite them with living descendants of their previous owners.

Six years ago, Joe Kerry was perusing books at a yard sale in Pennsylvania. As he thumbed through an old Bible with handwritten notes inside, it began to rain. Fearing the records of a family he’d never known could soon be lost forever, he bought the book.

As Joe tells it, that was the day BibleRescue was born.

Watch the video to see how the non-profit rescues Bibles and the personal records contained within them.
