- My Son Was Excited About This by Seasons of Opportunities on 7/23/2016
I was really excited to get a look at this Bible since my son has enjoyed Minecraft in the past with his friends and is looking forward to getting a game of his own one day. When he got a look at it, he was so excited. He thought it was the coolest Bible, and said I should let him have it, because he wanted to use it with his Minecraft games.
This is a full Bible text written in a version children can read easily and understand. Along with the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation, it also includes many full color illustration pages incorporating Bible stories and the game. For instance on the page with Noah's ark, there is a suggestion to build and ark on your game. Each illustrational page is double sided with a devotional, a Scripture passage, and a "what to do section" on each side. The "what to do section" suggests something to do on the game that relates to the passage and the devotional. Such as, Planting Seeds - the parable of the sower, and recommended growing seeds on your game, choosing the right soil, and taking care of the plants.
This Bible is hard cover, has a dictionary at the end, and a page with some great Bible stories. I am pretty sure a child interested in mine craft would love this Bible and hopefully it would encourage him/her to use the game in a productive and educational manner as well as grow them spiritually in the process.
I received this Bible from BookLook and Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest opinion.
- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 6/3/2016
If you have a Minecrafter in your midst you need this Bible! I must admit that when my grandson first introduced me to Minecraft I just didn't get the appeal of the squared-off pixelated characters. Then I got my hands on a copy of the NIrV Minecrafters Bible and a lightbulb went on!
I love finding creative ways to pour the Bible into my kids and grands. Who knew a video game could be used for that? To me the Minecrafters Bible is the ultimate accessory for this game. To help get you started using the Bible in conjuction with the game there are twenty-two full color pages with Scripture passages to read and suggested things to do. After your kiddo has gone through those there's an even longer list of great Bible stories at the very back of the book.
My daughter has been using the Minecrafters Bible each morning by reading a particular story with my grandson and then allowing him some extended time to recreate that day's story. It's been such a delight to see him continually refer back to the Bible as he adds details to his world.
If you are a homeschooling family this would be a wonderful addition to your Bible curriculum. I can also see it being used in youth groups on special event nights. My grandson's friends already get together informally to play Minecraft so I think it would be an easy way to engage the culture while instilling truth in the lives of the next generation.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
