2016 Bible-Minded Cities

Each year, in partnership with American Bible Society, Barna ranks the nation’s top markets based on their level of Bible engagement. The study is based on individuals who report reading the Bible in a typical week and who strongly assert the Bible is accurate in the principles it teaches are considered to be Bible-minded. As in previous years, the South remains the most Bible-minded region of the country, with all of the top 10 cities located below the Mason-Dixon line. Chattanooga, Tennessee reclaimed its title as the most Bible-minded city in America. Fifty-two percent of its population qualifies as Bible-minded. The least Bible-minded city in 2016—Albany/Schenectady/Troy, New York—moved up one spot from last year to claim the crown, with only 10 percent of residents qualifying as Bible-minded. ***What about Chicago?  #78 out of 100 with only 20% being biblically-minded.  Lots of room left for evangelism!
