Bible Review 3:2, Summer 1987

Answers to BR Quiz #4 Mountains of the Bible

Bible Review

The fourth and last BR “Win-a-Free-Trip-to-the-Holy Land Quiz,” featuring mountains of the Bible, proved rather easy. Seventy-six readers, more than half of those who responded, submitted correct identifications and Bible cites for the four mountains shown in the Spring 1987 BR. These 76 join the 119 correct entries from the previous quizzes.

Soon, we will draw one name from this pool of correct submissions. The person whose name is drawn will receive roundtrip air-fare from New York City to Israel, plus $500. Watch for the announcement of the lucky winner in BR 03:03.
