State of the Bible: Skepticism rising

Survey shows skeptics even with regular Bible readers

Earlier this year, we released a study about what Americans think of the Bible. With the help of Barna Group, we learned there are now as many Americans skeptical of the Bible as are engaged with the Bible. This is the fourth annual survey we’ve conducted, and although the numbers are not yet moving in a direction we want, they only fuel our passion to help people in every generation encounter the Word of God for themselves.

We are working ambitiously to shift these perceptions—and misperceptions. In this task, the most valuable resource we have is you: people who demonstrate by their transformed lives the real effects of spending time with God’s Word. People who surprise the skeptics with gentleness, patience, kindness, and the love Christ makes possible.
