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,, 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.

I like "Lego" and this is a Bible that puts it in simple terms (that a child would understand). I will say that it is more like a Child's Bible , but it probably took the Author some time to make it(with all of the Photography involved ). I think he did a very good job!

This book is an awful, corrupt portrayal of a story that was intended to portray the love of God and the need for Christ Jesus. Included in this book are but not limited to graphic portrayals of:

* Prostitution
* Deflation
*Mass Murder
* Pornography

All of the above are shown the my favorite childhood toy, Legos. Although many of the stories do appear in the Bible, the author took the liberty to emphasize the graphic and evil nature of each and every scene, leaving out how, through every circumstance, how God's love for us shown through even the worst times.

This is an awful book and I would not recommend it to a juvenile or mature audience

Disappointed -- author chose to depict a lot of bloody stories. Definitely for a more mature audience. : (
