Most Brits don’t believe the Bible is relevant to their own lives

A new study by the Bible Society has found that only a minority of Brits see the Bible as relevant to their own lives.

In the survey of nearly 20,000 adults, only 18% said that the Bible was “relevant to them personally”.

This was despite 40% of those surveyed saying that they were Christian.

Over half (52%) of the respondents agreed that it was important to know the Bible because it has shaped British culture, and a majority (61%) said that it was good for children to know Bible stories.

The survey underscored Britain’s increasing secularisation, with just under half (49%) saying that they were not religious, and the same proportion saying that there was “definitely, or probably, not a God or gods”.

By comparison, only 38% said that there “definitely or probably is” a God or gods.

The survey was carried out by YouGov on behalf of Bible Society to coincide with the launch of the charity’s new online resource, Lumino, aimed at helping church leaders map the spiritual ground in their own communities.
