There is mounting evidence that increasing religiosity not only reduces crime and delinquency, but also promotes prosocial behavior. Museum of the Bible is excited to host Byron Johnson who will present compelling evidence that the Bible and faith-motivated individuals and organizations provide a powerful antidote to crime-related problems.
