The Bible is a book of love (as you say) and Islam is the religion of peace (as many Muslms say). Both statements are technically true. Both statements are equally pointless.

The bible can be a book a love but that doesn't mean a damn thing when a screaming christian fundamentalist is shouting that God Hates Fags or Loves IED's (those Phelps followers) or is telling you that you if you don't follow that book of love you will spend eternity roasting in the pits of hell. Kind of negates all the "love" stuff (and please don't say that "real" christians don't think like that because plenty of them do).

I think this program is fun and entertaining, but $25 is very steep.

Some of the sarcasm and intolerance toward Christianity in the previous comments are quite sad unless they were sarcastic, in which case they were just wasting time.
What is so wrong with Hangman? It's fun.

Are we so politically correct now that we can't play it anymore? Furthermore, what is so politically correct about bashing hangman? It is a game my teachers taught me in elementary school and knowledge of the game in no way influenced any of my classmates nor me into turning violent.

Furthermore, the developer, probably Christian, created this game as a fun way to remember the Christian Bible. Any person who thinks it is unfair that there is no Islamic/Wicca/Buddhist/New Age/ etc version should make the situation fair by creating such a version.

The Bible is a book of love, and yes, sadly MANY Christians abuse that message by choosing specific passages out of context. MANY people who are intolerant to Christianity do the same. That does not diminish the value of the Bible itself, instead it should encourage knowledge of the true book in order to know the love that waits within.

This software program, though overpriced at $25, encourages people to discover that love.
It's a beautiful thing.

As a Bible-believing Christian I have no problem with this game. The Bible is a book of God's love for us in Christ, yes. But it is also a book of God's justice, and judgment upon unrepentant sinners.

I am not Christian, but irony of the game's concept aside, this is not a place for hateful or generalising comments.

Using the imagery of a guy being murdered at the gallows to teach religion is very appropriate. However, if the developer wants to be more creative, he could use the imagery of someone being stoned to death or crucified. Or, perhaps, someone being boiled alive in oil...and screaming in agony; it would make for some great sound effects!
Oh, and $25 for this??? LOL!!!
As a previous reviewer noted, this game does get boring quite fast.
Somehow, the whole idea of this little "educational" game makes me quite sick.

$25 for a barely 980 KB program that is boring and rather patheticly conceived? You must be nuts! Or exploitative like so many fundy types I know. Wanna know more about the Bible folks? Download a free text copy of the Bible from the web and install it on your iPod. That way you can take it with you wherever you go and read at your leisure. The only nice thing I found about this program is that the author graciously included a section on prophets from the Koran, which complements the NT and OT (Judaic) components to the program.

The imminent execution death of a human being is "Non-violent, family software at its best" ???

Step away slowly, don't make eye contact...

I went to Christian schools most of my life so I have earned the right to say this: What is it about the Christian religion that it is so obsessed with instruments of torture and capital punishment? From that "The Passion of Christ" snuff film (admit it) to Hangman games to the way the religious-right run war operates Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib, a real Christian is almost forced to distance themselves from the depraved, sadomasochistic side of this religion.
