Do Bible Haters Now Equal Bible Lovers? American Bible Society Thinks So

“The number of Americans who read Scripture at least four times a week and believe that it is the inspired word of God has fallen to just under 1 in 5, according to new reseState of the Bible 2014arch from the American Bible Society (ABS).

The same percentage of Americans (19 percent) are now ‘antagonistic’ toward the Bible, reading it less than once per month and believing it is a book of teachings written by men that contain stories and advice.
