"More than nine out of ten American adults engage in some type of faith-related practice during a typical week. This is one of the numerous findings revealed in a new report by researcher and author George Barna . . . . The report provides information concerning 45 different faith-related beliefs, behaviors, and perspectives. . . . With the release of the report, entitled The State of the Church: 2005, Barna revealed several of the outcomes described in greater detail in the research.
"One outcome described is the small but noteworthy increase in Bible reading. Currently, 45 percent of adults read the Bible during a typical week, not including when they are at church. . . .
