The growth of digital technology and mobile devices has fundamentally altered the way we communicate and engage with each other. Social media sites mediate our online presence and set new rules for digital interactions. But the question remains: has social media made our lives better or worse? Barna conducted a study among women to examine the habits and impact of their social media use.
The current debate about America’s drug policy, and the experiment with marijuana in a handful of states is challenging common sense notions about combatting drug use, and public opinion is reflecting this new reality. In Barna’s most recent study, American adults were asked their view on the legality of drugs in the U.S.
Stories of violence have filled the news cycle of late, making it easy to forget the reality of human kindness. So in the tradition of similar city-rankings, Barna ranks the top 50 most generous cities in America. Where does your city rank?

Shifting gender roles and expectations, the delay of marriage, and a secularizing culture are leading more American adults to believe that moving in together before tying the knot is a good idea. A recent Barna study asked Americans their views on cohabitation: the pros, cons, motivations, and effects of living together prior to marriage.
The world in which we read and engage with the Bible is rapidly changing.
