"Full & detailed review: http://cynthology.blogspot.com/2017/0...

I realised just how little I knew of the Bible, particularly of the Old Testament, when I encountered the questions in this book. Of course, different versions of the Bible worded things differently but that was no excuse for my ignorance. So I set about reading this book with gusto.
There are a number of formats in this book that can be used to enliven Bible learning classes. Multiple Choice questions, Fill-in-the-Blanks, Match the columns, you take your pick.
The Did you know? Section includes fact learning related to the Bible. For instance, the size and scale of Noah’s Ark, the height of Goliath, the sizes of the chapters and verses in the Bible etc. The history is explained with humour. There is also a lot of interesting trivia on the longest and shortest chapters in the Bible, and the length of the verses.
The book begins with Knock, Knock jokes. Most of them are names from the Old Testament, with Matthew, Luke and Jesus, the only exceptions from the New Testament. The funniest one for me was “It’s me, Adam! There’s only one other person on the earth. Who do you think it is?
We also have Multiple Choice Questions from the Psalms, the Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. The answers follow each question, and that was a relief. On a Kindle, going back and forth between pages is rather tedious.
Are You Smarter Than King Soloman? asks interesting questions, through the medium of Multiple Choice questions. there is a breath of good humour which suffuses the book, suggesting that Bible reading should be a joy, not a chore.
And then we have the lists, especially the one list that I struggled with all through Sunday School. The listing of the ten plagues that struck Egypt, in the right order. We are also quizzed on the order of the Ten Commandments and the names of Jesus’ ancestors in the order of their birth.
The sheer number and variety of questions is astounding. This book could serve as a fantastic way of getting youngsters and older people interested in reading the Bible.

"This book is so much more than just jokes. It is a fun book of Bible trivia that really stretched me and also some great facts! The kids loved the jokes and since they are Bible jokes for kids they are great for all ages and very appropriate. The book also has some great section where you fill in the blanks on verses. The kids were doing great but I found them to be challenging! Great way to strengthen your scripture memory in a really fun way!!

My oldest especially enjoyed the trivia section title: Are You Smarter than King Solomon? There were questions in a wide variety of age and skill levels. Also a lot of fun was a short section on Old Testament Word Scramble. This is just a great way to keep your mind sharp and keep you focused on God's word.

This little book will keep the kids busy for quite some time. They will be having fun, gaining Bible knowledge and entertaining themselves! This has been a great addition to our library and I can see us using it for quite some time!

" a great resource for sunday school teachers and parents that want to help their children learn in a fun way facts from the Bible. I love the creative questions, it gets children involved and searching the Bible for answers. i wish there were more books like this! " said.

"This is an adorable book for children to get them more into the Bible and make it more fun. There are so many different sections that there is something for everyone. This wouldn’t even have to be just for kids, reading through this as an adult, there are many things that I don’t even know or would at least have to think about for a while as well.

This would make a great game night activity for the whole family, or a fun travel activity, as well as just something for kids to do by themselves on a rainy day. I think this would even be fun for adults too!

"I love jokes, the cornier the better. When I received this book in the mail, I could not wait to open it. The first ones I came to were knock knock jokes. I began to tell them to my hubby and we were both laughing very quickly. Along with knock knock jokes, there are fill in the blanks from various verses, facts that children, and some adults, will find fascinating and so much more.

This book could be used by families, Sunday School teachers, educators, along with anyone that enjoys having fun with information from the Bible.

I loved this book and look forward to looking and using it in the future.

I was given this book by Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

"Who doesn't like a book that is full of fun facts and fun jokes to pull on other people? One group of people certainly love it and that is kids!

Great trivia which leads you to learning more about the Bible than you thought you knew. What's even better? The parents get to learn something along the way with the questions and following answers.

What does it contain? Let's see, knock knock jokes, fill in the missing word (a list of words to choose from are provided with an answer key), Are you smarter than King Solomon type of questions (think are you smarter than a third grader here), Old Testament scramble (unscramble words), Who are you (where you give five hints to someone and they guess who you are talking about).

All in all, I think this is a really cool book. Great for families wanting to instill Bible knowing on their kids (and themselves!).

I received this book from Bethany House publishers. The review is my own with no pressure to write a positive review.

A great tool for parents to encourage their children into the word. With fill in the missing word and other fun activities, you and your children will be engaged in the word. Some of the facts were new to me as well so I think there is something for everyone. I like that you can do this with your child to create conversations about God's redemption. It also talks about some of the hard stuff which I think is always good too. It only helps to think it thru. The end came with a call for a relationship with Christ.

There are some concerns I had one being with the jokes. I do believe that the Lord has a sense of humor and the humor is not at His expense but we have to be careful about our reverence for Christ and I was pleased to see that later in the book the importance of reverence. The other concern was the question are you going to heaven? Sometimes questions like that do not deal with the heart but a list of what needs to be done. It has nothing to do with faith and our need for Christ. For the facts alone, it is a great encouragement for anyone to know more about the bible and the desire to know more. This book may do that.

A Special Thank You to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

" I have never been much of a joke teller but my children became interested in joke books when they each turned about 8. I’ve heard the same old jokes told over and over and obligingly laughed at each one. But I can tell you that Bible Trivia, Jokes, and Fun Facts for Kids has some funny stuff in it! Youngsters will find the jokes amusing and perhaps even sidesplitting. I admit my husband and I guffawed over a few of them; even our 19-year-old son cracked a smile a time or two. I’m hoping my grandsons are going to get many hours of hilarity out of this book. They are always excited to share a new joke with us and sometimes get so excited when trying to tell the joke that they can hardly speak for their own laughter bubbling over. I’m looking forward to laughing at these again and again!

Learning is a definite plus when it comes to the facts and trivia! I was surprised how much of it I didn’t know. Several things even stumped my husband who is pretty good at Bible trivia. Granted, some of it is kind of obscure but it was still fun to put our old noggins to the test.

I highly recommend Bible Trivia, Jokes, and Fun Facts for Kids to the entire family! You’ll share hours of fun and laughter and learn together.

Bethany House Publishers provided me a free copy of this book for review purposes. No compensation has been received.
