What Preachers are Reading

According to a 2001 survey of nearly 2,600 active clergy, the average clergy person spends four hours aweek reading in addition to what is required for a sermon or teaching lesson. The results indicated that Catholic, Mainline Protestant, and Conservative Protestant respondents live in distinct intellectual and cultural worlds. The survey also showed that conservative Protestants are less likely to read Mainline or Catholic authors, while Protestant mainline clergy will read conservative authors who write about leadership, church growth and spirituality. For more about these interesting differences and similarities in what clergy are reading, explore this article by Jackson W. Carroll.
