America’s Most Christian Cities

America’s Most Christian Cities

Recently, the Barna Group conducted a study to determine which cities were America’s “most Bible-minded.” They took the nation’s 96 largest cities and rated them based on how often their citizens read the Bible in a week and how much they agree with what it says. Not surprisingly, the study shows the South is America’s most biblically minded region—with Knoxville taking the number one spot—and New England is generally America’s least biblically minded region, with Providence bringing up the rear. The study doesn’t line up directly with the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies’ research last year, which sought to answer the more general question of which city is the “most Christian.” That study ranked Salt Lake City, Birmingham and Oklahoma City in the number one, two and three spots, with the greater area of Portland coming in last place.
