The Most Bible-Minded Cities

If you live in what is known as the Bible Belt, you may be living in what American Bible Society research calls, “The Most Bible-Minded City in America!”
This past year Birmingham, Alabama took the lead over Chattanooga, Tennessee!
The purpose of these annual studies is to get a greater understanding of where and how people are engaging with the Bible—that whether you live in the most Bible-minded city or not, the Bible’s impact is being felt!
Each city’s Bible-mindedness is determined by analyzing reading habits and beliefs about the Bible, as well as the number of online search rankings—all were taken into consideration.
What the study discovered is that only 27 percent of the population was even considered Bible-minded!
It’s a good time to engage with the Bible in a growing understanding of its impact and influence!
