The Game Show Network has signed on comedian Jeff Foxworthy to host a new game show, "The American Bible Challenge," which will test contestants' knowledge of the Bible, the Christian Post reports. Contestants will share their life stories, and each team will compete for a faith-based organization. Questions will be designed to "acknowledge and celebrate the Bible's continuing importance in contemporary life and culture," according to a news release. "I am excited to be hosting a show about the bestselling book of all time," said Foxworthy, who has also hosted the Fox quiz show "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" He added, "It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way."
