There is a battle going on for the attention of young people. We live in such a high-octane world were distractions constantly vie for our attention. Adults and children alike are vulnerable to the diversions. What suffers is our time spent in the Word of God. But today the internet and technology is a tool to fight the temptation to skip reading scripture. You might be asking “how?” Simple.

Using interactive games filled with adventure, a colorful story-line, and a Biblical lesson can touch generations. The same way filmmakers use movies to touch an audience—games today are as equally engaging. The Aetherlight is a game that provides opportunity to not only have fun, but allows players to enter a world through a Biblical allegorical tale that will unfold over several chapters.

“There is a battle for the hearts and minds of young people–that’s why I’m excited about The Aetherlight,” Roy Peterson, president and CEO of American Bible Society shared.  “Through this gaming experience, we have a mechanism to get young people to engage with Scripture.”

The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance is an adventure like Ben Hur, and other faith-inspired stories to encourage and entertain kids. There’s another cool element in addition to the game. Resistance Academy was created to challenge players by providing Bible study activities, a deeper understanding of the Word, and how to incorporate these lessons into daily lives. Parents will also be able to keep up with how their child is progressing. This is a great way to open the faith discussion at home.
