According to a new study, most Americans say they would read the Bible more if they weren’t so busy. That’s just one of the trends revealed by the 2017 State of the Bible report—an annual study conducted by American Bible Society and Barna Group. This year’s study also revealed that Americans who did engage regularly with Scripture felt closer to God as a result.
“The Bible remains a hands-down winner of hope for Americans,” says American Bible Society President and CEO Roy Peterson. “Those who are opening up the Word of God are discovering it to be a guide to help make sense of life and a source of eternal hope.”
