About this deal

To those faithful or critical of the Bible this book is inspiring, funny, wonderful and wrong all at the same time. My favorite is Samson, which is excellently done in this book, but everyone knows that one, so I'm not going to share it here.

Spurling's own commentary occasionally appears in illustrations and is displayed in gray text, and also as original titles for the stories themselves.The author of this book claims that his motivation for creating this book was to show what is "really" in the Bible. All of the verses are explained in a satirical manner using Legos, which give a graphical and often hilarious representation to all of the verses. I hadn't realised before I bought it that it is word for word the bible so some bits not especially suitable for younger children! A couple of transparent red single tiles are nearby to indicate blood (there is a lot of blood in this book).

at graphic Lego depiction of some scenes of their Holy Book ( tl;dr), and are also indignant that an atheist would do this. Ten years ago, a guy named Brendan Powell Smith started building LEGO vignettes representing scenes from the bible. It's been a while since I've made the attempt, and I had forgotten how violent this book is, and how much of a douchebag God was in the Old Testament.

Elbe Spurling (born September 7, 1973) is an American transgender artist, author, and moralist best known for The Brick Bible book series (published under her birth name Brendan Powell Smith)—an ongoing project to illustrate the entire Bible in LEGO building blocks. I am a Lego maniac, own hundreds of sets, assemble and disassemble them all the time, and pretty much love all things Lego. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Yet, they are in this book- a Trojan horse made to turn young children against their God and family. He’s built some amazing scenes out of little plastic bricks that manage to convey the message and even some of the majesty of the Bible, and triggered some genuflection in the process.

No matter what the format is, no matter what the source is, many of the stories are very graphic, and even as my own sons were looking over my shoulder at the “cool LEGO book Dad just got,” I found myself trying to shield them from what was in there. Well-photographed LEGO constructions illustrating Old Testament passages from the Bible make for an enjoyable read.Some parents may find it offensive, while children may enjoy the various ways in which the author as created scenes using Lego characters. Her unique storytelling and illustrating style has been noted for its meticulous attention to detail, and its ability to walk a fine line between humor and poignancy. 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. After I read this book I wanted to read more about God and I wanted, surprisingly, to go to church and read more books about that. For me, the only thing missing would be a few pages explaining the process required to create this book.
