A new study by the Bible Society has found that only a minority of Brits see the Bible as relevant to their own lives.
In the survey of nearly 20,000 adults, only 18% said that the Bible was "relevant to them personally".
This was despite 40% of those surveyed saying that they were Christian.
Over half (52%) of the respondents agreed that it was important to know the Bible because it has shaped British culture, and a majority (61%) said that it was good for children to know Bible stories.
The survey underscored Britain's increasing secularisation, with just under half (49%) saying that they were not religious, and the same proportion saying that there was "definitely, or probably, not a God or gods".
By comparison, only 38% said that there "definitely or probably is" a God or gods.
The survey was carried out by YouGov on behalf of Bible Society to coincide with the launch of the charity's new online resource, Lumino, aimed at helping church leaders map the spiritual ground in their own communities.
Users can utilise video resources, as well as enter their location to access valuable data about their constituency, including churchgoing frequency, religious affiliations and interest in the Bible.
Bible Society Chief Executive Paul Williams said: "The idea that people are closed to the idea of faith is simply incorrect. Our research shows there's a wide variation in how people think of Christianity and the Bible, and many are far more open to a conversation about them than is sometimes assumed.

They may also wonder what’s with the hand basket they find themselves in.
It's the Brits job to make their lives relate to the Bible, not the other way around.
"Pride" is a subtle sin.
How's that working out for you Brits?
They already are becoming an Islamic Slave country
They deserve everything that's coming to them.
Ask them about the Koran though and the response would change dramatically.
It is very relevant. They’ll find out.
The relevancy of the Bible is a personal matter. Its authority is universal.
In twenty years, or less, Minor Britain WILL firmly believe in the tenets of the Koran.
That’s OK, the Quran will be.
Most Brits probably don’t know what’s IN the Bible. I imagine it’s not read in schools any longer.
So they instead brought in a religion that really is more like a religiouscized KayKK to kill themselves. Based on such the English are stupid idiots.
Britain is clearly LOST. LOST. LOST. kiss it goodbye.
Theres an infinitesimal chance Boris and the soccer and rugby thugs save her.
Boris and the thugs aren’t practising or believing Christians
Most Brits Don’t Believe the Bible is Relevant to Their Own Lives
How is that working out for you? Things going well in your Country?
Inevitable result when you herd your population into one church and then that church walks away from all of its Biblical moorings.
When the Russian communists began their persecution of Christians, the average church fell from 300 to 15 members - a 95% falling away. It will happen here also.
How many of those responding have even read the bible?
