The State of the Bible in 2013 (infographic)

The Barna Group has produced its annual study of what Americans think about the Bible. Here’s an interesting infographic summarizing their results.

Three of the more interesting results:

  • Young people (18-28) are more likely to see the Bible as an important source of “wisdom” in many life areas.
  • They often see the Bible as an important source of wisdom for addressing family conflict and parenting, but not divorce.
  • The percentage of Americans who are openly “antagonistic” toward the Bible has increased sharply in the last two years.
