The ABC Daily Reader - Vol. 1

Now in it's 2nd season, The American Bible Challenge, hosted by Jeff Foxworthy, has rapidly become 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. I have also spoken with people who 'play along at home', testing themselves and others over who who gets the most correct answers.

Good news! Consulting Producer, Troy Schmidt, has put together a daily reader based on The American Bible Challenge. The book leads the reader through nine weeks of study and has over 300 questions to test your Bible knowledge. Each day has a portion of Scripture to be read and 5 questions designed to challenge and inspire you into both deeper study and life application. If you get stumped for the answer (or challenged by someone in competition with you!), all the answers are in the back.

Other notable places you may want to check out are
Love 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.

FlyBy Promotions also has a copy available to send to a randomly selected winner. If you are interested in being in the contest, please let me know (preferably on the blog), and I would love to know how you would want to use this book. Dead line to enter is Thursday, April 18, 2013, at 6pm CDT.
