Mormons Are More Likely To Read The Bible During The Week Than Are Protestants or Catholics

While doing some research about a certain Bible topic, I somehow came across this gem online. Its a list of the most interesting findings of 2001 as announced by The Barna Group, a pro-Christian research firm.
1. Among adults who have been married, born again Christians and non-Christians have essentially the same probability of divorce.
2. Mormons are more likely to read the Bible during the week than are Protestants or Catholics.
3. Adults who attend charismatic or Pentecostal churches were more likely to possess biblical beliefs than were those attending other Protestant and Catholic churches.
4. By the end of the decade, 50 million Americans will seek to have their spiritual experience solely through the Internet, rather than at a church; and upwards of 100 million Americans will rely upon the Internet to deliver some aspects of their religious experience.
5. Roman Catholics represent the second-largest denominational group of born again Christians in the nation - trailing the Southern Baptists, but way ahead of Methodists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, and others
6. Although one-third of all born again adults claim to tithe their income, only 12% actually do so.
7. Just half of all home schooling parents are born again Christians.
It was nice to find this little gem.
I just finished reading the entire Bible last year.
Do you read the Bible? How often?

Great little post. Yes, I do read the Bible at least weekly. I actually enjoyed reading the Old Testament as a younger man. The stories therein are so awesome! Truly great literature at times. I found that when you read the scriptures because you really want to increase your knowledge, it truly becomes a pleasure.
