What better way to get young ones interested in the bible than to make The Bible Online, a strategy-based MMO that resembles Age of Empires? The first chapter of the game, Heroes, which goes into open beta on September 6th, will follow the book of Genesis as players guide Abraham and his people to the promised land.

The game is being developed by German MMO developer FIAA, the people behind Kalos War and Operation7.

“The Bible Online is developed for players of all ages to easily get closer to the Bible, while enjoying the game,” said FiAA president Dr. Alan Kim.

And not only will it allow you to get closer to the bible, but if you play in the beta you can also win an iPod!
