Do you ever feel like it's more fun to exist in the computer world than the real one? Is that the only place you can control your destiny? Well, God is the original great world builder, and he gave us the power and the skills we need to make changes in the real world. The Minecrafter’s Bible, NIrV contains the full text of the New International Reader's Version (NIrV) of the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) as well as 24 color tip-in pages featuring full-color illustrations in the style of wildly popular virtual-world-building games. Featured stories include the days of creation and great builds of the Bible.

My thoughts:  The NIrV Minecrafters Bible is certainly a colorful salute to the computer gamer's world. With characters, buildings, and scenery that look like they were built from Legos this is a Bible for children that will at least have them opening it to see the pictures! And hopefully they will read the Bible stories about the pictures. 

It includes instructions on how to use the Bible to create your own world on your computer, including the Bible references to read, details of what you need to gather for your imaginary world. It also asks questions for the reader to be able to make the passages they read applicable to themselves. 

The print is a decent size and even though the copy I have is hardcover and never been open, it falls open easily, I can find various references easily, and the book stays open, It includes a dictionary and a listing of different Bible stories, the ABCs of Salvation, and more. 4 stars.
