Craig Detweiler: Playing Video Games With God

Halos and Avatars:
Playing Video Games with God
By Craig Detweiler (Westminster John Knox, 2010)

“Instead of convincing kids to start their day with a devotion, perhaps we have to shift the emphasis to the end of the day—looking back. The questions become, ‘What have you seen/learned/heard?’ and ‘How might Scripture enhance or deepen that?’ God’s Word speaks into our life based upon our experience. Perhaps the Proverbs could be seen as a cheat code. And Ecclesiastes is what you consult after you’ve made your mistakes. While parents would undoubtedly like to spare kids the pain of bad decision making, a pattern of risk taking followed by reflection may prove their chosen route.” –Craig Detweiler, from the book
