Which State Knows the Most About the Bible? Alabama
"They don't call it the Bible Belt for nothing."

AP/TN (Mar 28th, 2007)

A recent Press-Register/USA poll in Alabama reveals that most residents of the state not only have a religious faith, but they know more about the Bible than most other Americans.

According to an AP report, while most Americans can't identify even one of the four Gospels, more than 70 percent of the Alabama respondents knew the village Jesus was born in.

"They don't call it the Bible Belt for nothing," said Keith Nicholls, a political scientist and director of the USA Polling Group, which conducted the poll.

Boston University professor Stephen Prothero, author of Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know—and Doesn't was said to be impressed by the religious literacy that Alabamians displayed.
