Importance of the Bible
How important is the Bible in helping you make decisions about your life? (Exploring Religious America, 2002)
The purpose of the Exploring Religious America survey was to examine the extent of the nation's tolerance of religious diversity, familiarity with different faiths, and views on Islam, extremism and future conflict -especially in the aftermath of September 11th. The survey was part of a series of five special programs airing on the Public Broadcasting Service television program Religion & Ethics Newsweekly (http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/), and it was the subject of a cover story in U.S. News & World Report (http://www.usnews.com/usnews/home.htm). The series, which began on April 26, 2002, also examined broader questions about the role of religious beliefs and experiences in the U.S. As of July 7, 2003, a summary of the poll and survey results for the Exploring Religious America could be found at: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/week534/specialreport.html.
