Here is some insight on what millennial s are thinking about the Bible, from the Barna Group.
- Practicing Christian Millennials Maintain a High View of Scripture
- Non-Christian Millennials Hold Ambivalent and Sometimes Extremely Negative Views about the Bible
- Millennials Still Prefer to Engage the Bible in Print but are willing to engage digitally
Many Christians and Christian leaders are concerned about the next generation of Christians. And for good reason. There is certainly a well-documented trend of Millennials leaving church or turning away from their faith. However, this current study on perceptions of the Bible gives church leaders some very good news about the Good Book: Active young Christians are holding true to historical and orthodox views on the Bible. In many ways, their commitment to the Bible stands in stark contrast to typical stereotypes of younger Christians. ~~David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group
