Survey finds British children, adults biblically illiterate comment (0)

March 13, 2014


CANTERBURY, England — Three out of 10 British children have next to no understanding of the Bible and their parents are not that knowledgeable either.

A survey released Feb. 7 by the Bible Society, founded in 1804 to spread knowledge about the Scriptures, said most boys and girls aged 8 to 15 did not know that Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark or Jesus’ birth were rooted in the Bible.

More than a third of the 800 children surveyed did not know that David and Goliath and the story of the Good Samaritan were Bible tales. One in 10 mistakenly thought the story about King Midas and Icarus was in the Bible.

Nearly half of the 1,100 parents surveyed failed to identify Noah’s Ark as a story from the Bible. More than one-third thought a Harry Potter plotline was or might have come from the Bible.
