NEW YORK — Add to the list of television viewing options a new game show that will test participants’ knowledge of the Bible.
Hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, “The American Bible Challenge” is set to debut on GSN, formerly the Game Show Network, and a pilot was filmed in late March.
Questions for the studio-based show will be designed to acknowledge and celebrate the Bible’s continuing importance in contemporary life and culture, according to a GSN news release.
Contestants will share their life stories and each team will compete for a faith-based organization.
“I am excited to be hosting a show about the best-selling book of all time,” said Foxworthy, who is widely known for his redneck jokes.
“It will be interesting to find out what people really know and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way.”
