100% - got a lucky guess on the Maimonides question. Overall, these questions were pretty softball to an American with a Christian background and some awareness of history and current events. No questions on non-Christian texts or characters within.

This. Though I would have stated it with a little more finesse.

I'm an atheist and I got 100%. One of my majors in college was Religion Studies. I'm glad it stuck in my head.

The Great Awakening question threw me for a minute - I was wavering between Finney and Edwards, until I remembered Finney being an 1800s guy and the First Awakening was earlier than that. And I couldn't remember who Maimonides was, but they'd already asked about people in the other religions so I was able to figure that one out.

Well, whaddaya know? I scored 100% and only had to guess once (Jonathan Edwards).

By the way, I follow the teachings of Christ as I understand them -- though there are times when I feel like a Seventh Day Agnostic.

I answered 31 of 32 questions correctly for a total score of 97%. Christian.

The one I got wrong was the question about the First Great Awakening preacher. I had no idea and just took a guess (well, I knew it couldn't have been Billy Graham! He's old but not THAT old.) The other questions I found fairly simple and was confident when I chose them that the answers were correct.
