Gaming and the Heroic Life

A Quest for Holiness in the Virtual World
  • By Bobby Angel
  • Foreword by Blevins
Product Description

Video games fuel a fundamental human drive for adventure--like the epic quest to slay zombies, a solo voyage to rescue the princess, or setting off with a clan to defeat the final boss.

The desire to be a hero in your journey is something Bobby Angel can relate to. A lifelong gamer, he was the cohost of the God and Gaming series on YouTube and often appears as a guest on Bearded Blevins's Around the Halo on Twitch. In Gaming and the Heroic Life, Bobby explains that you don't have to just play the role of hero in a game--you can actually pursue a heroic life by the way you engage the virtual world.

Gaming and the Heroic Life is a map to becoming not only a better gamer but also a better person--one who has a purpose and knows where they fit into the world.

The book contains three levels:

  • Level One explores why people love games and what games have to do with God.
  • Level Two examines how the Easter eggs of truth, beauty, and goodness in games impact players in much the same way that they impact your relationship with God.
  • Level Three demonstrates how gaming can propel players AFK (away from keyboard) to find purpose and meaning in service to others.

Bobby shows where video games intersect with a life of faith in God--how games echo with our call to holiness and how we can respond to that call in both the virtual and real worlds.
