How well do you know your Bible? Even if you don’t know the difference between Jehoshaphat and Jehoahaz or Melchizedek and Mephibosheth then you might want to check out the newest addition to the Game Show Network lineup starting in August. Premiering August 23, 2012 at 8 pm on The Game Show Network, The American Bible Challenge is a game show to test your knowledge of the Bible. This hour long game show will be hosted by comedian and television host Jeff Foxworthy.
THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE is a 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 Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world’s best-selling book.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 and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies serving as Executive Producers on the project. Nick Stuart and Maura Dunbar of Odyssey Networks are Consulting Producers. Odyssey Networks is the country’s largest multi-faith coalition dedicated to producing and distributing media that creates understanding among people of different beliefs and perspectives.
Introcaso-Davis commented, “THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE celebrates America’s passion for The Bible in an entertaining, unconventional format that makes The Good Book more accessible to the whole family. With Tom Forman, Michael Davies and Odyssey Networks, we have assembled a first-rate producing team and we’re looking forward to this timely concept coming to fruition.”
Odyssey Networks’ Maura Dunbar added, “This is going to be a really fun project that Bible enthusiasts will love. It’s an opportunity to celebrate The Bible, share stories of faith, and make a hugely entertaining show that will appeal to a large segment of the population.”
One of the things that you will notice is that the contestants on this game show are playing for charity. I think that this is a great way for someone to showcase their Biblical knowledge and help a worthy cause at the same time. And even though I am not the best at remembering Bible facts, I am looking forward to watching this show and brushing up on my Biblical knowledge.
