Since 2009, Minecraft has taken the gaming world by storm. Now hugely popular with children, those familiar with the phenomenon will love this new world and the adventures of God's people. Garrett Romines, and Christopher Miko; skilled in using games and toys to create fun learning environments and products for children, have re-created Bible stories with the famous virtual blocks to produce vibrant, and complex 3-D worlds filled with adventure and using astonishing imagination. The images have been captured and combined with text boxes and speech bubbles to explain the stories for 7-11 year olds. The text is light, but explains the events thoroughly for the age group, and the dialogue includes in-game humour.

This bible for minecrafters is epic. It tells you all key stories from the bible and its pictures of bible scenes in minecraft are funny and clever. My favourite bit was when David fought the giant of a man Goliath with only a sling and a stone and won the battle triumphantly. I love this book because I am a minecraft fan and the pictures really made me think about what it would be like if I was that character. I have never sat down and read a bible book but this one really appealed to me. I would reccomend this book to minecraft fans wanting to read a new book about minecraft and learn about bible stories at the same time.

The Mincrafters Bible is stories from the Bible. I liked reading it and read all the stories. They were all good and stories I recognised. The pictures were very cleaver and how they had been made into Minecraft scenes. I think I would have liked to make some of the bible stories into Minecraft scenes. The stories were ones that I had been taught at school. The words were all easy to read and nothing to tricky. I think 7 year olds to 12 years will love this book.

I really enjoyed reading the Unofficial Bible For Minecrafters. I especially enjoyed the skins that were used for Adam and Eve! I also loved reading the part about Joseph And His Dream Coat and how villagers were used as his twelve brothers! It is a really good story and is also very funny. When it came to the story about Pharaoh for the very unhealthy cows Garrett Romines and Christopher Miko (who are the authors) used Mooshrooms to look really realistic! It must have taken ages to make such a detailed bible. Even my brother loved it but  his favorite part was when Jonah was overboard, the sea went calm and still and a huge fish emerged and gulped Jonah down but then Jonah prayed to God and was not eaten. The book gave me some great ideas to use in my own world like the prison and the stable on the ark. This book was a very fun way to learn about a lot of the stories that are in the bible.

This book is brilliant, all three of my children have enjoyed it.  Bible stories told in the fantastic Minecraft world.  The screen shots are excellent and the work that must have gone into building this bible world is phenomenal.  The stories are easy to read - which is great for my dyslexic 14 year old - and are easily recognisable and all the big stories are there.  To name a few - Joseph and his technicolored dream coat, Noah, David and Golliath, the 10 commandments, even Jesus' on the cross.
As we are not big church goers the Bible for Minecrafters only hold so much appeal but when we are done it shall be passed on to my Godson who is a regular church goer and he can hopefully share it with his Sunday class.
