My older kids are both obsessed with Minecraft and the two year old is well on his way! I’ll admit, I don’t understand the game at all. What I do know is that it encourages creativity and design and a lot of imagination! When I got the new Minecrafters Bible, my biggest problem was which kid to give it to!
The hardcover features a pixelated Minecraft looking David and Goliath. My kids were both delighted and thought it was the coolest thing ever when they saw it. I decided to tell them it was a family Bible that anyone could use and they both have been all over it!
I have seen a lot of Bibles and I have to say this one is the best as far as attention to detail goes! Right from the get go it goes into the Minecraft world on the “How to use this Bible” page. It makes it sound like the Bible is a wonderful Minecraft world for them to explore. I don’t know a lot about the game but I know enough to know that my kids would be familiar with the terms wood, iron, gold etc.
Another really cool thing is that a lot of the full color pages that tell the story and have pixelated pictures are about building things, just like Minecraft. For example, creation of the world, the Tower of Babel and the ark. We started going through all the colored pages and stories as our family devotions at night because it was something they could relate to and included the Bible verses to read with the story which they take turns looking up.
Outside of those pages, it’s mostly just a regular Bible in the NIrV version, which is my current favorite for my kids. It has nice, big text for them to read. I do wish there were more Minecraft features like having the writing be green and brown and pixelated on the titles and books of the Bible. It just feels like it needs a little something more. The Minecraft pages are so well done that the rest pales in comparison.
The Minecrafters Bible is a hit in my house and while I wish there were more to it; it’s the Bible that have gotten my kids reading the most so that makes it my favorite!
