The Relationship between Bible Literacy and Behavioral and Academic Outcomes in Urban Areas: A Meta-Analysis
Jeynes, William
Education and Urban Society, v42 n5 p522-544 Jul 2010
A meta-analysis is undertaken, including 11 studies, to determine whether there is a relationship between Bible knowledge on one hand and academic and behavioral outcomes on the other among those living in urban areas. The results indicate that increased Bible knowledge is associated with higher levels of student academic achievement and positive behavioral patterns. The analysis indicates that the relationship, as measured by degree of statistical significance, between Bible knowledge and academic outcomes is stronger than it is between Bible knowledge and behavioral outcomes. The possible reasons for this pattern and also the reasons for relationship that Bible knowledge has with academic and behavioral outcomes are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
