The Most Powerful Christian in America
Jeff Schapiro, Christian Post
Who is the most influential Christian leader in the United States? The results of a new study show that no individual overwhelmingly stands out, and Americans are divided over the answer.
According to a study released by Barna Group on Monday, 41 percent of American adults were unable to identify who they believe to be the most influential Christian leader in our nation today. The most mentioned individual was evangelist Billy Graham, who was named by 19 percent of adults. It was also found that Graham's name was more likely to be mentioned by the elderly – ages 66 and older – than by younger adults.
