What a great Hub. This was fun and very imaginative. It made me want to grab my Bible and read. Hopefully other felt the same way. I love this!

Great idea! I totally agree with Hyphenbird. I also think it would be interesting to see the average overall score for everyone who took it. I assume it doesn't actually track that information though.

Too bad theology is such a hard thing for people to agree on. I'd love to see one of these with more of a theological focus, but 90% of the people would protest whatever you claimed were the right answers. :)

Have a great day!

I am always game for Bible questions and these were some great ones. I always remember that question, 'What is truth?' because of Francis Bacon's essay.

HB and NW, glad you enjoyed it. It was fun putting it together and certainly challenged me. NW, Francis Bacon name sounds vaguely familiar but don't know anything about his essay.

SF, You can see the average overall score by clicking "View Quiz statistics" below each each quiz. It will only give you the overall percentage, but still, it's interesting.

Thank you all for stopping by.
