America’s Views of the Bible

We begin with a new GALLUP poll that’s hardly radical in its findings. Three in 10 Americans interpret the Bible, saying it is the actual word of God. A 49% plurality of Americans say the Bible is the inspired word of God but that it should not be taken literally, consistently the most common view in Gallup’s nearly 40-year history of this question. Another 17% consider the Bible an ancient book of stories recorded by man.
