Most Americans Own a Bible, So Why Aren't They Reading It?

It may surprise you to learn that America is decidedly pro-Bible. According to research commissioned by American Bible Society, Barna Research polled 2,000 Americans and discovered that nine out of 10 households own a Bible. A full 86 percent of people surveyed indicated that they consider the Bible to be sacred or holy. That’s the good news.

But this positive view of the Bible and high rate of Bible ownership in America begs a question: what are Americans doing with all these Bibles?

This is small potatoes. I know of people, past & present, who for all I know, were/are thoroughly versed in Scripture, yet still treated fellow human beings, or even fellow Christians, with utter contempt.
