LEESBURG, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida preacher gave a sermon that lasted more than two days and that could become a new world record.

Cross Mount Dora church member David Douglas told the Leesburg Daily Commercial that Zach Zehnder began presenting the Bible from Genesis to Revelation at 7 a.m. Friday and finished at 12:21 p.m. Sunday. That’s 53 hours and 18 minutes.

The pastor’s speech was streamed live at http://www.longestspeechever.com . It will be part of the documentation needed for the Guinness Book of World Records. Organizers say the event also raised more than $90,000 for an addiction recovery program.

The former Guinness record holder was Vickrant Mahajan of India, who spoke for 48 hours and 31 minutes.

According to Guinness rules, Zehnder was allowed a five-minute break every hour and could save them up for a longer one.
