Last week I shared my intimidation of putting aside books about the Bible in order to read the Bible itself. That transition was scary.
Barna research says More than half of all adults wish they read the Bible more often (58%). This is down slightly from 2016 (61%). But despite most Americans’ desire to read the Bible more, two-thirds of them (67%) say their level of Bible-reading is about the same as it was one year ago.
Reasons we’re not reading our Bibles:
- We don’t know where to start
- We get lost in the language
- We think we need a degree
- We don’t see it applying to our everyday circumstances
- We think it’s boring
- We don’t make the time
