Four-Year Study Reveals Unexpected Views of Religious Liberty

How do pastors and the general public define terms related to religious freedom, and how do they view its fate in the United States? A recent Barna report, Faith Leadership in a Divided Culture, finds that although faith leaders and the general public agree on a definition for religious freedom, they have evolving outlooks regarding its future.

State of the Bible 2019: Trends in Engagement

Each year, Barna examines behaviors and beliefs related to the Bible among American adults, a study conducted in partnership with American Bible Society.

What Makes for a Spiritually Vibrant Household?

How do our core relationships engage us in a thoughtful, transformative faith—the kind that holds up to and is passed down over time? This was one of the guiding questions of Barna’s new Households of Faith report, based on an extensive study of practicing Christians and their living arrangements and routines.
