Minecraft is undeniably a major success story, and Mojang, the creators of the game, made money off of far more than just a game. The merchandise for the game was sold globally, and came in many different forms. However, Mojang probably never expected to be making money off of Bibles. “The Unofficial Bible for Minecrafters – Stories from the Bible told Block by Block”, attempts to help kids connect with the Bible. Several churches noticed that many Christian children did not truly know the Bible, whether it was because it was too complicated, or they found it boring to read. These minecraft Bibles were their solution. It was written to be easy to understand for young kids reading the Bible, with graphics that they can easily relate to.

These minecraft Bibles have been donated to several Christian private schools, including Le Rocquier School located in New Jersey. The Minecraft Bible is actually part of a series, containing multiple titles, each sharing a different story of the Bible. These titles include “The Story of Moses”, “A Children’s Guide to the Old and New Testament”, “Life of Jesus”, and “Heros and Villains”. The stories covered by these books include Adam and Eve, the journey of Abraham, David and Goliath, the birth of Jesus, the Last Supper, and many more.

Not everyone is pleased with these new interpretations of the Bible. Certain churches feel it is an insult to the Bible for it to be put in such a form. However, the success of these books is unquestionable. Originally the Minecraft Bible was only available in New Jersey but due to its success it is now sold on many different shopping platforms, including Amazon. Many churches are pressing to get these Bibles for private schools.

“The Unofficial Bible for Minecrafters – Stories from the Bible told Block by Block” might seem like a strange idea, especially considering its a mix of video gaming and religion, but it has gained popularity among public schools for getting kids interested in reading the Bible. The series teaches kids the stories from the Bible in an easy way that kids of all ages can understand, and mixes in humor to make it entertaining. It stands that Minecraft has certainly stood the test of time, and now that it has even made its way into religious communities, who knows how much farther it will expand or how it will be used to further educate children.
