What would it look like?

Our video production team has been having fun creating a video for GEM using After Effects and Sure Target 2 graphics and editing programs. “What Would It Look Like?” is designed to help people recognize Europe as an important mission field and consider if God may be calling them to get involved in reaching the spiritually lost here. Could God be calling you?

I love this video so much I'm using it as the cornerstone for a new MPD presentation I'm crafting. At the beginning of this video, you make three rather large statements. I was wondering if you could give us the details of where they came from.
1. The world's 10 most resistant people groups are in Europe. Who are these 10 people groups and how were they determined to be the "most resistant".
2. Lowest Christian growth for 100 years. According to what measurement?
3. 400 Million people have never opened a Bible. According to what survey? How many people are in Europe?
Please don't think I'm attacking, I just know I'll be asked these questions as I present my case. Thanks for your help. Jeff Gage, new GEM appointee to eDOT.

Thanks for your questions! Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Needed to check the stats...

The 10 most resistant people groups comment came from the World Evangelism Research Center.

The 10 people groups are:

The 400 million people comment was one from Kalevi Lehtinen, a Norwegian man who was the former director of Agape Europe (CCFC in Europe).

They say the current population of Europe is about 700 million.

When considered a continent, Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area, with an area of 10,600,000 km² (4,140,625 square miles). In terms of population, it is the third-largest continent. The population of Europe is roughly 700,000,000: about 11% of the world's population.

I don't have the lowest Christian growth rate in 100 years stat. It was from another video we saw, but I don't have that link.
