How “Bible-minded” would you consider the York County area?
I would have thought we would score pretty high on a Bible rating meter. I’ve been told there are over 620 churches in the county. Seems like a high number to me.
Then again, the South is known as the “Bible Belt” for a reason.The answer is right in the middle. The York-Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon area ranks 58th in a new survey of most Bible-minded cities.
The survey is the work of barna.cities.org, a site started “to provide better information to leaders about the state of faith in their city.”
The most Bible-minded city is Knoxville, Tenn. The data is based on telephone and online interviews with 46,655 people over a seven-year period, Barna reports.
Respondents who said they had read the Bible within the previous seven days and who strongly agreed with the accuracy of the Bible were listed as “Bible-minded.”
The Providence, R.I/New Bedford, Mass. area ranked 96th and the least Bible-minded city.
Do you read the Bible weekly?
