Jesus and the Minecrafters

The Unofficial Bible for Minecrafters Life of Jesus, Stories from the Bible Told Block by Block

Submitter: I was extremely surprised to find this (British) book in our British public library, having only ever seen similar horrors coming from the USA displayed in Awful Library Books. It is worth noting that it twice includes the disclaimer ‘This book is not authorised or sponsored by Microsoft Corporation…or any other person or entity controlling rights in the Minecraft name, trademark, or copyrights.’ That statement somewhat raises the question of how it ever got to be published in the first place, especially in the Sue-you-if-you-so-much-as-mention-me United Kingdom with its draconian libel and copyright laws. Back of the book does, however, reveal the fact that ‘Authors Garrett Romines and Chris Miko are both involved in primary school education in the United States, and in providing educational camps, camps, workshops and curriculum around interactive classes’.

Evidently this book is the secret to a more sanitized Internet.

In actuality, it really is a guidebook for Christian oriented sites. Regardless, since this is about the Internet circa late 1990s, I think we can safely let this go.

These subject/group specific books were all the rage as people were starting to navigate the web. Now it seems ridiculous that one would use a book to guide them to certain sites. They would be out of date before they even went to a publisher.

Remember Actor’s Guide to the Internet? How about Internet after Hours? or as a companion book, Catholics on the Internet. I’d be curious to know how many sites have lasted over 20 years.

Go surf with God,
