The Bible on Your Xbox

xboxbible.jpgJust in time for Christmas, B&H Publishing Group has adapted The Good Book into a Xbox 360 application, a digital version of the Holman Christian Standard Bible for video game aficionados.

Entitled “Bible Navigator X,” the application features the complete Old and New Testaments, a search tool, bookmarking, and adjustable settings–for big screen viewing and customizing reading themes. In early December, Xbox users can download the game in the “Indie Games” section of Xbox.com for “$5/400 Microsoft Points.”

Here’s more from Aaron Linne, B&H Publishing Group’s executive producer of digital marketing: “The Xbox isn’t just secular entertainment anymore. We can use technology that other people developed to study Scriptures through a new medium. Some people are just more comfortable with a controller in their hands than a book.”
