Brendan Powell Smith has spent the last decade creating nearly 5,000 scenes from the bible—with Legos. His wonderfully original sets are featured on his website, Bricktestament.com, but for the first time 1,500 photographs of these creative designs—depicting the Old Testament from Earth’s creation to the Books of Kings—are brought together in book format. The Holy Bible is complex; sometimes dark, and other times joyous, and Smith’s masterful work is a far cry from what a small child might build. The beauty of The Brick Bible is that everyone, from the devout to nonbelievers, will find something breathtaking, fascinating, or entertaining within this collection. Smith’s subtle touch brings out the nuances of each scene and makes you reconsider the way you look at Legos—it’s something that needs to be seen to be believed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting I ordered this for my son, and as cool as the Lego photos are, the violence and sexuality of the Old Testament is really highlighted. As a parent and a teacher, I would say that it was not appropriate for elementary school aged children. Interesting for young adult or older mature teen. The Advent story in this series is great and a favourite of my son.
