In fall 2012, a new show premiered on the Game Show Network that quickly surprised Hollywood. Hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, The American Bible Challenge built up an audience of 2.3 million viewers in just nine weeks, making it the highest-rated show ever in GSN history. By taking on unique questions spanning all of Scripture, teams excitedly won money, not for themselves, but for a favorite charity. The interest has grown so fast in recent months, a second season hits the airwaves in March 2013.
Now, the consulting producer for the show, Troy Schmidt, with a foreword written by host Jeff Foxworthy, has released a daily reader based on The American Bible Challenge designed to take us deeper into the questions from the show and the life applications that they inspire.
Using many of the questions from the first season as a guide, each day features an inspiring lesson along with five challenging Bible questions to take you deeper into Scripture. The book guides the reader through nine weeks of study and encouragementthe same length of time as a season of The American Bible Challengewith over three hundred questions to test your Bible knowledge. And dont worry, all the answers are in the back.
The American Bible Challenge Daily Reader includes questions to deepen your knowledge and to change your life. Are you ready to jump in and take the challenge?
Troy Schmidt began writing animation in 1985 for Dennis the Menace and Heathcliff. He also wrote for The Mickey Mouse Club for three seasons. Troy is repsonsible for adapting Max Lucado's Hermie the Common Caterpillar into books and videos.

Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A fun new way to study the Bible!!!April 22, 2013Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've been a huge fan of The American Bible Challenge since it's premiere because not only is it fun, but they raise awareness of some great charities that are vying for the chance to win money to help out their causes. Yet for me, it's even more personal. It drives me back to my Bible. A chance to study in a completely new and fun way like never before and the best part of it is, that I can get my entire family involved in the process. For me, anything that makes learning fun, garners my interest and that's why I can't wait to share The American Bible Challenge - A Daily Reader by Troy Schmidt with you!
There are 9 weeks of Daily Bible Challenges backed into this wonderful hardcover book, and yes, the answers are included in the back. I found myself challenged in so many areas, knowing some things about what I remembered about things like the building of God's temple, but I missed out on the details. Something God finds important and also included in the Daily Bible Challenge. It draws you more into the Bible to understand, just why is all this stuff important anyway, and I was amazed at just how important the small details in my own life are relevant to God. He's all about the details!! Look closely at anything He has created and you can see this just all about a instant big bang. God really planned the way our lives are, and everything He has created and breathed life into.
The best part about this book is that is can be done in little over 15 minutes and still last forever. The Daily Reader makes this study more relevant in terms we can all understand, from social media, to catching the latest catch phrase to make interpeting the Bible scriptures easier for kids to understand.
For example defining why prophets were necessary back in the old days (Old Testament) asking a rabbi in Jerusalem traveling to Iran, walking into downtown Tehran, and saying, "Hey, get your act together, or God is going to destroy you." Probably not the best plan. This is what God was calling Johah to do in preaching his message of repentance to the people of Nineveh, the capital city of the Assyrian Empire, who were, at the time, oppressing the Israelites. So Jonah did what any sensible Israelite would do: he ran and caught a ship going to Tarshish, which was in exactly the opposite direction of Nineveh.
If you are truly looking for a way to make your devotions or Bible Study more fun, I would highly encourage you to pick up a copy of The American Bible Challenge - A Daily Reader by Troy Schmidt! It will take things to a whole new level and one that would make a youth study or Vacation Bible Camp more fun for everyone!
I received The American Bible Challenge - A Daily Reader by Troy Schmidt compliments of FlyBy Promotions and Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review and did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable one. If you're like me and are looking for fun ways to get together with your family and incorporating God's Word into it, then trust me, PICK THIS ONE UP! I rate this one a 5 out of 5 fun stars!!!
Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Educational & FunApril 10, 2013Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Love this book!! A devotional/trivia book that brings out my competitive side? Oh yeah!! I like it just for personal reading, but this would be a fantastic book to use for family devotions for older elementary aged kids on up to the great-grandparents. Even the younger kids can learn as the family discusses the Scripture, answers the questions, and talks about how the lesson learn can apply to your life. However, you could also use this as a group Bible Study---as simple or as elaborate as you want to go with it. I can see teams and challenges being made!
Of course, you may not want to get into cash rewards, but perhaps the winning team could select the next group missions project or something similar. There are many possibilities of how this book could be used for learning, but also for fun. We each have various learning styles, and there is no point in having access to God's Word if you don't read it, memorize it, and use it in your life.

Karin TaggartGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Book That Does Not Disappoint!March 19, 2013Karin TaggartGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My family and I loved the show. We watched it every week and made sure we didn't miss one episode. This devotional gives the same type of experience. I looked forward to reading the book each time I picked it up!
The American Bible Challenge A Daily Reader encourages you to look closer at the Bible for the details. Every part of the Bible was written for a purpose and the details that I have a tendency to skip over matter. Troy Schmidt challenges you in a fun way to look at those details and apply them to your life.
I look forward to going through the book again with my children.
