How Teens Around the World View the Bible | The Open Generation
Trusted data can help us understand the present and prepare for the future, especially when we study the young people who are poised to reshape the world.
That’s why Barna has partnered with a number of Christian organizations, including Alpha, Biblica, World Vision, Christian Vision, Bible Study Fellowship, Christ in Youth, and the Association of Christian Schools International.
The result is The Open Generation project—a first-of-its-kind international research study to help church leaders better understand teenagers around the world.
It’s the largest study Barna has ever conducted in its 38-year history, and we’ve divided our findings into a three-part series:
- Vol. 1 — How Teens Around the World Relate to Jesus
- Vol. 2 — How Teens Around the World View the Bible
- Vol. 3 — How Teens Around the World Can Make an Impact
In this second volume, we explore how the Bible relates to global teens’ views of the world and how they live in it. We journey from what teens think about the Bible to how they engage with and apply scripture, noting some of the factors that make Bible engagement more likely or impactful.
We hope this report will reveal to you, your organization or your ministry how you can meet the teens in your community where they are and invite them into a life of drawing closer to Jesus.
