Synopsis

Bible Quiz follows seventeen-year-old Mikayla Irle as she memorizes thousands of Bible verses in her quest to win the National Bible Quiz Championship and the heart of JP, her quiz team captain. This John Hughes-esque documentary explores coming of age in the midst of faith, doubt, fierce competition and teen love.

Dove Review

“Bible Quiz” is a remarkable film! It shows how hard the various contestants study and it primarily focuses on JP, the Tacoma, Washington team captain and Mikayla, a teen girl who supports him and even has a crush on him.

The various contestants constantly study and their struggles are featured too, including JP’s desire to be number one and Mikayla’s disappointment in her mother’s constant absence in her life, due to her alcoholism. The highs and lows of the various quizzers are seen in this interesting documentary and so is their commitment to the Lord.

Rich Nelson, the coach of Life Center, states that the students are his trophies. And Dr. Rachel Dawson, the assistant, mentions she enjoys equipping them with God’s word. Due to a few comments about sex and “making out”, and a few scenes focusing on sexuality, we are awarding our Family Approved Seal for ages twelve plus to the movie. “Bible Quiz” will inspire you! The hard work of these young adults and what they go on to do in their lives is truly wonderful. This one has earned five Doves, our highest rating.
