    The best book of Biblical trivia I've encountered

    In reading the introduction, the author says that as the project progressed, he realized that he wanted the book to be more than 'just another trivia book.' Well, it certainly is that. Upon first opening Test Your Bible IQ and seeing the table of contents with chapter titles such as 'The Main Man' (I love it!) and 'Scoundrels, Jailbirds and Other Bad Guys', right off the bat, I knew it was going to be a fresh take on the standard fare of Biblical trivia. Progressing through the book, from the creative way each page of questions had a unique theme of its own to the humor of some of the false answers, I found the book to be thoroughly enjoyable - the best book of Biblical trivia I've encountered!
