I spotted The Unofficial Holy Bible for Minecrafters at the library and had to bring it home to check it out. My boys are very into Minecraft, as I’m sure many other kids are. What better than to illustrate Bible stories using Minecraft illustrations?!
This book contains an assortment of Bible stories which are illustrated Minecraft-style. The illustrations are actual builds which somebody did in the Minecraft game. The choice of stories is random and this is by no means a complete Bible. Also the text of the stories is vastly shortened, resembling the style of comic books.
Personally, I wouldn’t choose to sit down and read this book because Minecraft doesn’t appeal to me. However, my boys love Minecraft and I can see how this book would hook them into reading about the stories of the Bible while enjoying the visuals of the Minecraft world.
Kids will not gain great understanding of the Bible by reading this book, but it is a fun way for them to enjoy the stories in another format. I’ve found that younger boys in particular seem to gravitate towards a comics-style Bible versus a regular one.
This book would make a great gift, or addition to a church’s library. It would also be a good way to get a child to read who is interested in Minecraft, but not much of a reader.
