Bible Reading Research

Bible Society is committed to delivering quality research on New Zealand’s relationship with the Bible.

Since 2008, we have been engaging research companies such as Nielsen to help us paint a picture of how many New Zealanders read the Bible and the influence it has in their lives.

Our research is free on application to Bible Society.  If you’re interested in our research, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we’ll be in touch with you.
