A Student’s Guide to Gaming

Gaming is multi–billion–dollar industry, which has been growing massively in the last few years. It seems that everyone is gaming in one way or another. You might not think that the Bible has anything to say about gaming, but Reagan Rose has written this helpful book on what our relationship with gaming should look like.


Packed with help and hope, there is encouragement here for gamers and their non–gaming family and friends. A real spur to honour Christ online.

… Reagan Rose takes us on a tour of the virtual world of video games, teaching us about its excitements, dangers, and opportunities. I read this book with my son and recommend it to anyone who plays video games or disciples those who do.

With grace and wisdom, he navigates the topic carefully, but truthfully, the scope of this book goes even further. Not only did I finish reading the book with thankfulness, but I was motivated to examine all areas of my life in order to surrender them to the glory of God. Praise the Lord! This book belongs in the hands of every Christian

Video games aren’t sinful, but without godly wisdom gaming can lead to sin. My friend Reagan Rose has given our generation a simple, practical, and biblical game plan that will allow you to enjoy gaming without neglecting the glory of God.

Considering the growing dominance of video gaming as a pastime for young and old, male and female alike, the subject has received very little attention among Christian thinkers and writers. For that reason and others I am thankful for this brief book and it’s level–headed, Bible–based teaching and counsel.

With pastoral sensitivity and personal experience, Rose provides an excellent summation of the dangers and joys of gaming and how parents and students can learn to redeem the time for God’s glory.
