Millions of Americans who typically don't read a Bible opened one in 2020 as the world was facing a historic pandemic, according to a new survey.
The American Bible Society/Barna poll of 3,354 Americans, released Tuesday and conducted in January, found a 7.1 percent increase in 2020 over 2019 in the percentage of Americans who opened the Bible at least once. The survey estimates that 181 million Americans opened a Bible in 2020 compared to 169 million who did so in 2019.
The American Bible Society and Barna said Bible reading was "up significantly" in 2020.
