Tell Me Quick Bible Quizzes Author:F. Herbert Moehlmann FORWARD: — "We have had only one purpose in sending forth these Bible quiz booklets: to awaken the interest of young people in God's Holy Book. It is our firm opinion and belief that, under the proper guidance and leadership, these contests can become a medium in winning the love of our church youth for the Word of Life. I dare say that, in mo... more »st instances, their ignorance of and indifference toward the Holy Scriptures is no fault of theirs. Our young people welcome the use of the Bible at church meetings. Often mundane subjects are discussed in preference to the one Book that alone can make us wise unto salvation. In offering these Bible contests, we have attempted to initiate a 'Back to the Bible Movement' among the young people of the Church.
Where these Bible quizzes are intelligently and conscientiously employed, the results will be most encouraging, and gratifying. First of all, it is important that the leader in charge familiarize himself thoroughly with the contests to be used in the meeting. Without such preparation on the part of the leader the real purpose will be lost. In the second place, it is of the utmost importance that everyone participating in the contest have at hand a copy of the King James Version of the Bible. All participants should be encouraged to look up the Scriptual passage or passages in question. For example, the last contest in the booklet will lose much of its value unless each parable is read by the contestants and properly explained to them.
It is our earnest hope and prayer that these Bible contests may accomplish the one and only purpose for which they are intended, namely that holy reverence and love for God's Book may be engendered in the hearts of our young people.
