About Bible Quizzing adapted from Alliance Bible Quizzing site:
To the casual observer, Bible quizzing is a sport in which three teams match knowledge, jumping speed, memory, and quickness of response against one another on a designated portion of Scripture. However, quizzing offers much more than just competition and sport. The program involves memorizing a specific book or books of the Bible for each quiz year. By becoming involved in memorization, young people develop a love and respect for the Bible. The Word is planted in their hearts and dynamically influences them.
Young people from 10 years old to 12th grade compete against each other, which allows quizzing to be diversified. Younger students learn from the older ones and vice versa. Through this teamwork, Bible quizzing helps young people develop a genuine concern for others. Quizzers learn to rely upon the Lord and not upon themselves to attain their goals. Quizzing also gives a biblical perspective for everyday life and helps in the application of scriptural principles.
