NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the most comprehensive, in-depth and wide-ranging study to date on pornography among the American population and the Church — research reveals a younger exposure to pornography, increased desensitization and an escalating usage of pornography.

Detailed survey findings will be announced at a news conference on Tuesday, January 19th at 10 AM Eastern time at The Omni Berkshire Hotel, in the Vanderbilt Room, 21 East 52nd Street in New York City.
A wide-ranging, nationally-representative audience of nearly 3,000 participated in four online studies, including in-depth surveys among the general population, American teenagers, Christian pastors and the Christian church.
The research study was conducted by Barna Group, a visionary research and resource company focused on the intersection of faith and culture. The study has been commissioned by Josh McDowell Ministries, a Cru ministry based in Plano, Texas.
"Pornography violates all relational values between the individual and self, the individual and society, the unity of our families and our moral fabric and fiber as a nation," said Josh McDowell. "When we objectify and demean life by removing the sanctity of the human person, our future is at risk."
Presenters at the news conference are: David Kinnaman, president of the Barna Group (www.barna.org); Roxanne Stone, editor in chief of Barna Group; and Josh McDowell, founder of Josh McDowell Ministries (www.josh.org).
David Kinnaman has designed and analyzed research for Easter Seals, Habitat for Humanity, NBC Universal, the Salvation Army, Sony, the American Bible Society, World Vision, Harper Collins and many others. He has been quoted in major media outlets including USA Today, Washington Post, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News and CNN.
Josh McDowell is a speaker and writer specializing in Christian thought, contemporary culture and family relationships. Since 1961, he has delivered more than 27,000 talks to over 25,000,000 people in 125 countries.
