About This Quiz

According to one survey, only 20 percent of Americans have read the entire Bible. Forty-three percent of respondents said they've only read a few passages and stories ... even just a few sentences. What's going on? Well, despite the fact that many Christians would say that the Bible is the most important book in their lives, many of them only hear it read by someone else -- in church services, usually. 

Before you start getting judgmental -- or casting the first stone, as the Bible itself would say -- consider that the Bible is a thick, dense book. Also, a large part of it, the Old Testament, takes a certain amount of historical background knowledge before you can really understand what's going on. This is especially true of all the intricate laws and rituals, found in Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, that the Israelites of old had to follow. 

Fortunately, there are other parts of the Bible that are as familiar as favorite movies from childhood, or old family stories. These include the creation story, the nativity story, the story of Noah's ark, and of Jonah and the whale. And each of these stories, in turn, tends to have a certain "best-known" verse. 

So, if you're one of those people who falls in the 43 percent mentioned above, never fear. We've got a quiz for you, covering the Bible's best-known and most-often-recited verses. Even so, the quiz will get a little tougher as you get deeper into it. Think you're up to the challenge? Find out now!
