    many a Christian ask or asks?

    Should you learn Greek or Hebrew, the languages in which the Scriptures were originally written? (Yes, Aramaic is in there too, but not much, and everything I say about Hebrew would apply to Aramaic as well as they are related) I bet this is a question that many a Christian ask.

    I need native speakers' help.

    I can't say if it's a typo or just bad grammar, but yes, it should be 'asks'. 'Many a Christian' is singular.

    It is a blog, and blogs are a rich source of typos because proofreading your own writing is difficult as you know what you wanted to say. Other people's errors stand out more clearly as the text is not yours.
