Frankly I'm amazed - I'm not completely ignorant of the Bible

I am not a religious person; I don't think I'd classify myself as 'anti-religious', exactly, but 'areligious' is probably a more accurate assessment. What I am might best be called 'spiritual', I suppose. At any rate I did less badly at this little quiz than I thought I would, but to be honest a lot of the answers I gave were pure guesswork so some of my guesses must have been correct; I'm always suspicious of multiple-choice questions because however carefully they are compiled they still give you the correct answer as one of the choices so with a choice of 4 answers for many questions one is highly unlikely, even in complete ignorance (which I do not claim - I have after all been subjected to low-level religious [Christian] dogma all of my life), to get much less than 50 per cent or so. I think this places my result in better context:
You know the Bible 69%!

Wow! You are truly a student of the Bible! Some of the questions were difficult, but they didn't slow you down! You know the books, the characters, the events . . . Very impressive!
