It premiered August 23rd and is a fun and exciting game show to watch. Our family really enjoyed it.
Not only does it reinforce (or improve) your Biblical knowledge, it's heartwarming, witty, and encouraging.
The teams are introduced at the beginning and then, throughout the show, clips are aired showing more of their inspirational stories. Each of them are playing for a specific charity, that is also introduced during the show. The winning team takes home $20,000 for their charity and moves on in an attempt to win $100,000. The questions go from easy ("what bird did Noah send out of the ark") to pretty hard ("In the story of Esther, what was the name of the queen that wouldn't be shown off"). But it is alot of fun answering them or trying to remember : ^ )
One of the things we liked the most was the choir. The show has it's own choir! And they sounded wonderful!!!
This is the description of The American Bible Challenge by GSN:
"Comedian and author, Jeff Foxworthy hosts this studio-based game in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible. Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world's best-selling book. The contestants will share their compelling back-stories and each team will be playing for a charitable organization. The American Bible Challenge is produced by RelativityREAL for GSN, with RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”) and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies ("The Newlywed Game," "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire") serving as Executive Producers on the project. Nick Stuart and Maura Dunbar of Odyssey Networks are Consulting Producers."
And this is a little about the host, Jeff Foxworthy:
"Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy® Award nominee and the best-selling author of 11 books. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature."
I have been given the opportunity to give away The American Bible Challenge t-shirt & a Zondervan NIV Quest Study Bible!
