How well do you know the Bible? Jeff Foxworthy can help you find out.

GSN has tapped the comedian to host "The American Bible Challenge," a game show that tests contestants' knowledge of the scripture, with the intention of celebrating the Bible and incorporating it into contemporary life.

"I am excited to be hosting a show about the bestselling book of all time," Foxworthy said in a statement. "It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way."

Foxworthy has authored several books including "You Might Be A Redneck If..." and several versions of "Jeff Foxworthy's Redneck Dictionary." He starred in 1995's sitcom "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," and most recently hosted Fox's "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?," which aired from 2009-2011.

The pilot for "American Bible Challenge" will be shot later this month. The show's official air date is yet to be announced.
