Barnum released an interesting poll about how “Bible-minded” those cities are. My hometown of NYC ranked near the bottom of the list, at 85th out of 96. But it’s worth noting just what Barna means by that term.
The study is based on 42,855 interviews conducted nationwide and the analysis of Bible trends was commissioned by American Bible Society. 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.
