The Bible Transforms Lives

American Bible Society in partnership with Barna Group has been conducting State of the Bible research in America since 2008. Recently we’ve carried this research into cities, learning what people think about the Bible, how they interact with it, and what importance it plays in their lives. Through our research we’ve learned that the Bible transforms people. Among other things, people who are Bible-engaged give more generously of their time and money, are more likely to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and attend church more frequently than those who aren’t engaged.

Scroll on to see what we learned in our State of the Bible research in the city of Arlington.

Bible Engagement is measured as consistent interaction with the Bible that shapes people’s choices and transforms their relationships with God and others.
