Leibovitz presents students, academics, researchers, and general-interest readers with an examination of the emerging virtual landscape of video games, utilizing a variety of viewpoints within the context to examine theological and philosophical questions. The author has organized the main body of his text in four chapters devoted to what we do when we play video games; game design, glory, and the search for god; the utility and the ecstasy of breaking rules; and being and time in video games. Liel Leibovitz is a visiting faculty member of NYU Steinhardt, New York. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
