While many American teenagers hold a positive opinion of the Bible, most don’t regularly read it, according to survery results released by the American Bible Society.

“Sixty-nine percent of teens believe the Bible contains everything one needs to know to live a meaningful life; 89 percent of teens believe the Bible is a sacred text; and 44 percent of teens believe the Bible has too little influence in society,” Andrew Hood, director of communications at the American Bible Society, told The Christian Post.

“On the other hand, teens are not very engaged with the Bible. Only 64 percent of teens read the Bible three or four times a year or less; 71 percent of teens said they are too busy. When teens do read the Bible, 76 percent said they are influenced ‘a lot’ by it.
