The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey

Al Mohler: "A massive new study of the American religious landscape reveals big changes and powerful trends shaping the future. The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life surveyed 35,000 Americans in one of the largest research projects yet undertaken. The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey report is over 140 pages long, but the Pew Center for Research has provided a helpful summary."

Read Mohler's blog post
for a number of bullet points and observations. He writes, "The report is a credible and extensive review of the American religious landscape. Taken as a whole, the data point to big changes on the horizon. . . . Evangelical Christians and churches should look at this report closely. There is a wealth of data here that helps to define the mission field we face in America."
