A new study recently conducted by a well-known survey group reveals that the majority of America cities have little to no interest in the Bible.
As per the commission of the American Bible Society, the Barna Group has released the results of its study on the most and least “Bible-minded” cities in the nation. While some cities and regions of the nation were more “Bible-minded” than others, the nation in general ranked quite low. Out of the 96 cities that were surveyed for the study, 91 of them had very little Biblical interest.
The study is based on nearly 43 thousand interviews with citizens from across the nation.
“Individuals who report reading the Bible in a typical week and who strongly assert the Bible is accurate in the principles it teaches are considered to be Bible-minded,” the Barna Group explains, outlining how it came to its conclusions. “This definition captures action and attitude—those who both engage and esteem the Christian scriptures. The rankings thus reflect an overall openness or resistance to the Bible in the country’s largest markets.”
