GSN — formerly known as the Game Show Network — announced Wednesday at an advertisers meeting that Foxworthy will be the new host of a Bible-based trivia show, “The American Bible Challenge.”

Foxworthy currently hosts “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”

“American Bible Challenge” will select contestants based on their backgrounds, and all of the winnings will go towards faith-based charities, The Washington Post reports.

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