    Whatever your religious beliefs--or lack thereof--The American Bible Challenge is good for the soul. It's also the best new game show in years.

    Bible Challenge tries to cover all bases in America's complicated Christian field.

    While the Bible might seem like tricky turf for a TV show, the execution makes it comfortable for all but the most rigid Puritan.

    GSN's new game show, The American Bible Challenge, is just as dull as it sounds, like mandatory fun time at Sunday school.

    What a great show with a great point of challenging us to stay aware that there is much more to scripture than you think. I started watching the American Bible Challenge with a skeptical eye, thinking that, like Horsie said, it would be boring and actually not at all a challenge, because I have a fairly extensive Bible background. And as the show started out. the questions were quite easy. But I decided since I had already missed the beginning of other shows, to stick the rest of the show out. To my pleasant surprise, the questions moved from very easy to actually quite challenging, that only the most versed Bible students would probably know. Plus, Jeff Foxworthy surely keeps things upbeat and moving. This is probably the show that, at the end of the day, sticks with me and keeps me thinking about it. Guess I am gonna be watching this one. Collapse

    This show is very boring and pointless. We already know what the bible holds, so why keep stressing it out? My favorite show "Baggage" is not on because of this "Bible Show" I want it off the air unless the tv show "Baggage" remains on the air. Everyone fell asleep as soon as the show came on. I am not an atheist, I just think that this show is kind of a waste of time. Expand
