An amazing new edition - each Testament contains double the stories and both volumes are in a presentation box set. Enter a new world - full of exciting quests, danger, and miracles. Walk into the Garden of Eden and see tumbling waterfalls and lush landscapes; accompany Noah as he builds his ark; see the parting of the Red Sea; watch the blocks of the Jericho walls break apart; witness Jesus perform miracles - all created in Minecraft! Stories from the Bible are retold in block form, capturing the breathtaking adventure of these well-known tales. 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.
