Jeremy Lin has given his backing to a game based on the Bible, according to the Christian Post. A mobile app studio in Los Angeles announced this week it'll be creating a series of Bible-based games and apps. 

The Houston Rocket point guard, along with Christian leaders and other celebrities like Crazy Love writer Francis Chan, are all supporting the compan's Kickstarter campaign.

After realizing the need and market for a quality Christian app directed at not only current Christians, but potential Christians, Emmy Award-winning creative director Jeff Matsuda and technology industry veteran Mike Su started the fundraising campaign for their company, named Deep Fried Manna.

As the name implies, Deep Fried Manna seeks to create innovative and fun apps that teach biblical values by using games and stories.

"We as parents realized that when given a choice, our kids were increasingly choosing their iPads over traditional TV," explains Matsuda to the Christian Post, the 42-year-old father of three, "yet there were so few apps out there that taught them about God."

The company says that with nearly 2 billion Christians around the world, the lack of technology friendly for Christian children indicates a market desperate for quality products. 

Lin, of course, is a devout Christian and has never shied away from lending his hand. He appeared in Hong Kong and China last summer in a series of church events, and he's quick to thank God whenever his success is mentioned. It is unknown as of this time how Lin will support -- financially? -- other than just publicly backing the project.
