Popular titles like Halo 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess fly off shelves at a mind-blowing rate. John Stanifer, an avid gamer, shows readers specific parallels between Christian faith and the content of their favorite games. Written with wry humor (including a heckler who frequently pokes fun at the author) this book will appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike. Those unfamiliar with video games may be pleasantly surprised to find that many elements in those "virtual worlds" also qualify them as "virtuous worlds." --"Virtuous Worlds is just what anyone would need to bridge the gap between video games and Christianity. Even some one like me who isn't really a part of any religion can find this book uplifting and supportive." Michelle "Akuriko" Morse, award-winning cosplayer, featured in Nintendo Power --"While video games are often seen as immoral influences, Stanifer takes a more nuanced look. Analyzing a variety of games, he discusses how they support Christian be liefs. This will be a fun read for any Christian gamer and a reassuring one for many parents." Scott Jones, Ph.D., Associate Professor of New Media Communications, Indiana University Kokomo --"I was surprised and impressed at the number of spiritual lessons John drew from a variety of games. Members of any faith can find tremendous worth in reading this book. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has the mis conception that video games are just for entertainment purposes." Laura "Flute Link" Intravia, vocalist and flutist for Video Games Live --"In Virtuous Worlds, Stanifer will teach you to play video games better by understanding the spiritual truths of this world. He will also do the reverse: he will teach you to play your life better by understanding the truths of the video gaming world." Caleb Grimes, author of Star Wars Jesus --"So often Christians are fighting against culture, but John has utilized one of those rarely used gifts: the ability to see God's Grace working in the world and through the lives of others even when they least expect it." Rev. Derek White, Christian Gamers Guild --
