The Bible in America: 6-Year Trends

The world in which we read and engage with the Bible is rapidly changing. Within the short span of just six years, we've seen unprecedented shifts concerning the Bible’s role in and influence on American society. In partnership with American Bible Society, Barna conducted thousands of interviews to uncover some key trends.

In research conducted for David Kinnaman’s new book Good Faith, Barna discovered just how difficult it is for most people to reach across these cultural divides.

People of faith are increasingly viewed as extreme by significant segments of the population. A new study by Barna Group examines society’s current perceptions of faith and Christianity.
