American Biblical Dilettantism

Most Americans will tell you what they think the Bible means, but only 11% have read the entire thing (and that’s probably an overly optimistic percentage) and only 9% say they’ve read it more than once. And more than half of Americans have either read none of it, a few sentences, or a few stories.  Biblical illiteracy is rampant in America.  Christians, of all people, should be students of Scripture.

Breaking News: You don’t know anything about the Bible if you’ve only read it once.  Anything.
