Thanks to Kanye West, more young people are seeking answers about Christianity.
Google searches for “Jesus” and the query, “What do Christians believe?” spiked after West’s gospel-rap album, “Jesus Is King,” dropped Friday. The album has many biblical references, like this portion from his song, “Selah.”
The 42-year-old born-again believer recently shared he reads his Bible before going to bed.
American Bible Society wants to give that same opportunity to those who’ve heard the album and are interested in the faith. The ministry, which was started in 1816, launched “Bibles for Kanye Fans” to “aid those with questions by offering free access to the Bible,” giving away up to 1,000 copies of the Good News Translation for free.
American Bible Society’s annual “State of the Bible” survey found that 61 percent of millennials and 58 percent of Gen Zers said they’re curious about the Bible and half of the unchurched people said they are curious as well to know what the Bible actually says.
Anyone in the U.S. interested in receiving a Bible – completely free of charge – can do so by filling out the form at this link: abs.bible/kanye.
