In a 2015 report on the state of the Bible, 80% of Millennials said they own a Bible! The Millennial generation are most likely to read the Bible in a digital format.

Also, over 57% of Millennials polled said they wished they read the Bible more!

Pope Francis recently said in urging youth to read the Bible: “The Bible was not written to be put on a bookshelf. Read it carefully!” “If you saw my Bible, it might not draw your attention. I love my old Bible. It has been with me for half of my life. It has been with me in my times of joy and times of tears. It is my most precious treasure. I live of it, and I wouldn’t give anything in the world for it.”

Engage with the Bible! Invite a new conversation with people of all ages!
