Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended for young children At first I thought what a wonderful idea to have my son, 8 years old, read Bible stories that were in a Lego comic type format. He was drawn to all of the death and blood portrayals. He started asking questions about foreskins, adultry, etc. Not the sort of topics that a child should be reading about. The books needs to be rated for an older group.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Brick Bible is inspirational Being Catholic, I bought this book for my son.  It was the first time he was ever excited to look at a bible.  He just turned 7 years old, and within minutes was telling me about different stories they have read at school just by looking at the photos.  We were impressed that someone spent so much time recreating all those stories in Lego.
