Associated Press Release
ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) -- A suburban Atlanta man has restored a Bible that belonged to Martin Luther King Jr. so that it can be used in President Barack Obama's inauguration.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/XhH6Qb) that Gordon Ponsford of Acworth contracted with the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change to prepare the Bible for Obama's inauguration ceremony on Monday.
Ponsford said the work involved reattaching leather to the slain civil rights leader's traveling Bible.
Ponsford's assistant, Julie Julian of Wildwood, compared the word to taking a raggedy doll and making it look new again.
