GSN presents a first look at THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE, an original one-hour game show hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, premiering on Thursday, August 23 at 8 pm ET/PT.

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  Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world’s best-selling book.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

My daughter and I had an opportunity to preview this show, and we absolutely loved it!  I was pleased with Jeff Foxworthy from the beginning.  We both love him from “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”  And I was impressed with his Bible knowledge.  My daughter and I both loved the show and watched it in its entirety.  I do pride myself on being somewhat of a Bible scholar, but even I didn’t know everything!  I got some of the questions wrong.

I love the fact that the teams all play for charities.  And even the losing teams get some money for the charities.  I also love the fact that there is a gospel choir that provides fantastic music!  The hour went by so quickly as we previewed this show, and it never lagged for us once.

This show will be premiering on Thursday (see above for details), and I am going to get my DVR set up.  My mom has not seen this show, and I told her that she would love it.  Our favorite section?  “Faithbook!”  (No spoilers!  Be sure to watch it, and you will know why!)

GSN sent me a free preview of this show in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
