Are You More Biblical Than a Fifth-Grader?

Do you know more about the Bible than a fifth-grader?  Well. that's not the title of this new show, but pretty well summarizes what it will be like: From Kathy Schiffer at Patheos:
Jeff Foxworthy, host of the popular game show “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader,” has signed a contract with GSN (the Game Show Network) to emcee a Scripture challenge. The new show will be called “The American Bible Challenge.”

According to a statement by GSN, questions will be designed to acknowledge and celebrate the Bible’s continuing importance in contemporary life and culture. Contestants on the show will share their personal faith stories before a live studio audience. Competing teams will represent “worthy faith-based organizations.”

Foxworthy—the self-proclaimed “redneck”—said, “I am excited to be hosting a show about the best-selling book of all time.” His goal is to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way.
Another article has some sample questions:
Do you know what Balaam’s Ass did?
What were the names of Noah’s sons?
What was the name of Adam’s daughter?
Trick question! She’s not named in the Bible.

Should be fun!
