Engaging the Bible as an important source of faith, is an important contributor to a vibrant faith. In 2005, a national telephone survey of 1,200 randomly chosen young people across Australia found that approximately 4 per cent of those aged between 13 and 18 claimed to read the Bible daily and about 11 per cent claimed to read it weekly. The web surveys, which the Christian Research Association (CRA) has conducted among students in church-run schools, suggest that these frequencies may be a little exaggerated, and probably about 10 per cent of teenagers read the Bible in any given week including those who listen to the readings in a church service.
