America's oldest Bible publisher B&H has adapted the book for Xbox Live, and is asking for a mandatory donation of 400 Microsoft Points (£3.40/4.80) to read it.
Bible Navigator X, available from the Indie Games channel, has both Old and New Testaments, a search tool, bookmarking and various customisation options for viewing on a big telly, just as the original authors no doubt intended.
"The Xbox  isn't just secular entertainment anymore," said Aaron Linne, B&H evangelist. "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."
