Is Christianity Really Declining in America?

Ad Feedback - Newsweek Magazine's latest cover proclaims "the decline and fall of Christian America."

The cover story cites the New American Religious Identification Survey which shows that the proportion of Americans who claim to have no religion has increased to 15 percent today, from 8.2 percent in 1990.

The proportion of Americans who think that religion can answer all or most of today's problems is now at an historic low of 48 percent.

Adrian Wooldridge, co-author of God is Back: How the Global Revival of Faith is Changing the World, was recently interviewed by CBN News.  Woodridge saysreligion is actually on the rise around the world.
