GIVEAWAY & Review: American Bible Challenge Game Show

"If You Don't Know Your Bible, You Don't Have a Prayer" is the slogan of the American Bible Game Show. To help me learn more about he show I had access to view the video "Making of the American Bible Challenge", which helped me to learn a lot about the program.




You can also view this video here:  http://vimeo.com/47560728 

My thoughts:
* It's a family friendly game show in a generation when more and more shows, reality tv and more may not be family friendly in content, speech or dress.
* The producers were all hand-picked with a passionate interest in the bible.
* Found it very interesting to learn that Jeff Foxworthy hosts a men's bible study group weekly at a homeless shelter and has also been meeting with a group of male friends for a bible study on Thursday mornings for 15 years.
* It is interesting to learn who the people are playing for (to win the prize money for.)
* The original preview shown on the GSN illustrates more obvious questions than are used in show on a regular basis.
* Learning about the bible is presented in an appealing and fun way.

This looks like it could be an interesting change for television.

It would be a different kind of game show but would be one to watch and see more of it.

Right now we're strong on "A Friend Loves at all Times" with our boys. I also love "Rejoice in the Lord Always, I will say it again, Rejoice". and... "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it"

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Phillipians 4:8

The game show sounds neat! I especially like how they donate the profits to charity. It would tough for me to choose just one though. So many worthy causes out there. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.
