A hat-tip to The Charlotte Observer‘s religion reporter, Tim Funk, who brings us this tid-bit of news: The American Bible Society has released a ranking of the most “Bible-minded cities” in America.

According to Funk, the rankings were weighted by locals’ regular Bible-reading habits.

Four Carolinas markets came in the list’s top 25. The Charlotte market ranked third, the only Carolinas market in the top 10.

Other markets included Asheville/Greenville/Spartanburg at 11, Greensboro/Winston-Salem at 19 and Raleigh-Durham at 22.

According to Funk: “Big cities like Charlotte rarely make these kinds of lists. In fact, the folks at the American Bible Society say, only three of the Top 25 Bible-minded markets have populations of more than a million souls — Charlotte; Nashville, Tenn; and Raleigh-Durham.”
