Revelation

A pastor’s daughter rips five pages from the Gideon Bible in a motel room. She’s been there shooting heroin with people she hardly knows. Despite years of Bible study, the teachings on the thin pages confuse her. She doesn’t understand their meaning so she stuffs them into a pocket to read later. Eventually, she gets so high that she stands on a tollway overpass and recites each verse aloud, preaching prophecies to an indifferent congregation of passing traffic. She would probably go anywhere with anybody who stopped. They could be the one, the one who might drive her towards salvation.
