Black folks really, really love the Bible. That’s the conclusion of recent study that determined Bible reading habits among Christians. The American Bible Society’s “State Of The Bible” report says that 71% of African-Americans frequently study the Bible, compared to just 58% of all Americans. Only 6% of African-Americans are hostile toward the Bible, while just 4% are skeptical and 19% are neutral.
The Christian Post reports:
African-Americans are much more inclined to recognize the value of reading the Bible,” Roy Peterson, president of American Bible Society, said in a statement. “Anyone who devotes time to the Word of God can discover its unique ability to help make sense of life.”
For the purpose of the annual study, the researchers defined “Bible-engagement” as having the belief that the Bible is the actual Word of God or inspired word with no errors, coupled with the practise of reading the Bible at least four times each week. Even those who believe that the Bible is “inspired word” with some possible factual errors but read it daily were also considered Bible-engaged.
And “Bible-friendly” are those who believe that the Bible is the actual Word of God or inspired word with no errors but do not read Bible at least four times a week.
