GROUND-BREAKING CANADIAN RESEARCH
The much anticipated Canadian Bible Engagement Study Report will be available on the EFC website on April 30 as a free download. Envisioned, sponsored and published by the Canadian Bible Forum, together with The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, the study polls 4,500 Canadians regarding their use, trends, beliefs about and attitudes toward the Bible. The findings provide insights into how and why Canadians do or do not connect with the Bible, as well as revealing the key drivers of Bible engagement. Rick Hiemstra (EFC Research Director) and world-class market research company Angus Reid Strategies conducted the survey.

LOVERS IN A DANGEROUS TIME
