The gender gap is closing: since 1991, the percentage of women attending church during a typical week decreased from 55 to 44 percent, the Barna Group reported Aug. 1. Women who view God as “the all-knowing, all-powerful and perfect Creator of the universe who still rules the world today” dropped from 80 to 70 percent. “For years, many church leaders have understood that ‘as go women, so goes the American church,’” writes George Barna.—Huffington Post
