American Bible Society Creates Facebook Game Based On GSN’s ‘The American Bible Challenge’

By David Cohen 

It’s all about the Bible in The American Bible Challenge, a new Facebook game from the American Bible Society based on the GSN cable show of the same name, hosted by Jeff Foxworthy.

The American Bible Challenge tests Facebook users’ knowledge of the Bible, and the game contains exclusive content related to the cable series, which debuted on GSN Thursday night.

American Bible Society Chief Communications Officer Geoffrey Morin said:

The American Bible Challenge app is designed to be a lot of fun. But I think people who play will discover just how much they really know about the most famous book of all time. In the American Bible Society’s State of the Bible survey earlier this year, 79 percent of people surveyed said they believe they are knowledgeable about the Bible, but only 46 percent were able to correctly identify the first five books of the Bible. So clearly, there’s a disconnect.

From poverty to politics, environment to ethics, revolution to romance, the Bible has always addressed society’s most pressing issues. A TV show centered on Bible knowledge speaks to the enduring relevance of the Bible in our everyday lives.
