The Bible Game is a Christian-themed party game developed by Crave Entertainment. It is aimed at Christians and is "family-friendly". There are a variety of trivia questions related to the Old Testament. The main two modes are "TV Game Show" and "Challenge Games". The latter lets you choose any minigame.

In the Game Boy Advance version players explore different maps searching for demons. When the player finds one, they must hit the demon with their Bible. At this point the demon challenges you to Bible trivia in exchange for a piece of key (which opens the end level destination, the church).

This game features music from Toby McKeehan and other Christian artists. The Cover art for the packaging was illustrated by Dave Titus, a freelance illustrator who also created the original Netscape mascot, Mozilla.
