African-Americans are more engaged with the Bible than any other group, according to the American Bible Society’s State of the Bible survey, which found that this group overwhelmingly cites positive beliefs and hope found in the Scriptures.
The study showed that 71 percent of African-Americans are Bible engaged or Bible friendly, compared to 58 percent of all Americans. Only 6 percent of African-Americans have hostile feelings toward the Bible and just 4 percent are skeptical while 19 percent are neutral, the research found.
“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 Wordpost was originally published on this site
