The American Bible Challenge Review and Give Away!!

My children love to play games and watch game shows.  Quite honestly though many of the newer shows that are being made are not anything that I would consider to be something very "family friendly."  I was excited to find out about a brand new game show that is premiering August 23rd at 8/7 c on GSN.

About The American Bible Challenge

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  Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world's best-selling book.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.

About 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 was given an opportunity to view a video of The Making of The American Bible Challenge.  I am very excited to see a show like this on national television! We enjoyed watching Jeff Foxworthy host "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" and think he will be a very good host of this show also.  Not just because of his sense of humor but also his character (you may not know that he holds a weekly Bible study for homeless people once a week and attends a Bible study another day of the week.)  Unlike many other game shows, the money is not going to the contestants, but to charities that they are playing for.  During the video that I viewed, those involved in the making of the show expressed a deep desire not just to produce a popular fun show, but to stay true and respectful to the subject matter.  I am lookng forward to the premier of The American Bible Challenge Thursday night at 8/7 central.


I have been given an opportunity to host a giveaway on my blog for An American Bible Challenge T-shirt AND a Zondervan Quest Bible.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below with an email contact.  An additional entry will be given to those new followers or those who let me know they follow me using GFC, Networked Blogs, Linky Tools or Follow The Happy Homeschool Mom on FacebookGiveaway will close Sunday August 26 at 11:59 pm.    Good luck!
