“Porn doesn't have a demographic—it goes across all demographics.”
-Paul Fishbein, founder of Adult Video News
The current statistics on pornography are shocking. But with the rapid growth in web and mobile technology, studies on pornography use can get quickly outdated. In addition, few or no studies have intentionally cut across demographics, and even fewer have looked fully at the prevailing impact on Christian churches, leaders, and families.
That’s why the Barna Group, in partnership with Josh McDowell Ministry, has created a landmark study on the pervasive nature of Internet pornography and its impact on the church. Titled The Porn Phenomenon: The Explosive Growth of Pornography and How It’s Impacting Your Church, Life, and Ministry, this new research endeavor is the largest of its kind to date and yields accurate, in-depth data that will expose and address the issues facing churches and families today.
