Another Barna survey

We have entered another year and many of you have doubtless made your "New Year's Resolutions" and have included such things on your list as "Read the Bible more".

But, as you are also likely well aware, just simply reading the Bible does not always translate into a changed life.

This is especially true when it comes to young Christians.

But those are just a few of the many things uncovered in the survey.
