The Lad bible, which was originally a Christian publication, has become an evangelical bible with a mission to evangelise the Bible, according to a new survey.
The survey of over 10,000 people by the US-based Lad Bible, published on its website on Tuesday, found that more than three-quarters of people in the US are either Christians or have a Christian background.
The survey found that evangelical Christians were most likely to say that the Bible is the most important book in the world.
“What’s interesting is that we find that evangelicals are more likely to identify the Bible as being the most sacred book, the most authoritative book, than atheists,” Lad Bible senior pastor Robert Johnson told ABC News.
Lad Bible founder and president Robby Soave said he was happy with the results.
“I think it’s important to remember that there is a difference between the Bible and the church, which is that the church does not believe in the Bible,” Soave told ABC.
“The Bible is a religious text, and it is a book of laws, it’s a book that tells us what we should do, what we shouldn’t do.”
Soave said that, in some ways, the survey was more of a snapshot than a definitive one.
“We have people that we’ve got that are very, very religious and are quite passionate about the Bible in particular,” he said.
“It’s not really a snapshot of the Christian community at large.
It’s about the people that identify themselves as evangelicals.”
Soaves said the Lad Bible is in the process of “shaping” its mission, adding that it would be “very interesting to see what other data we can collect on evangelicals in the future”.
