A recent study shows how the younger generations of Americans allow themselves to be touched by the power of the biblical message and transform their lives by reading it. Generally less religious, the minority of young Christians is on the other hand more attached to the study of biblical texts.
This week came out the last part of the annual survey "State of the Bible in 2023" from the American Bible Society. This chapter focuses on the spiritual practices of Generation Z, born from 1997.
The study examines the beliefs and practices of Generation Z by comparing them to the habits of previous generations. While atheists and agnostics outnumber older age groups, 58% identify as Christians.
However, within this majority, few are regular users of the Bible: only 12% say they read the Bible outside of religious services.
