Quiz Time

This is a new feature of our web site.

We present a quiz on the Bible to see how much you remember from reading the Bible and how well you know your stories and facts.  Plus it’s a time to have some fun.  The questions and answers are taken from the book “The Complete Book of Bible Trivia” by J. Stephen Lang, by Tyndale Lake Publishing.

This page will change after about two months.  It will depend on interest.

The questions are here and the answers appear farther down the page.  No cheating to quickly look at the answers – give the question a reasonable chance before looking.  Have fun!
