From the author of the highly praised and somewhat controversial The Brick Bible: A New Spin on the Old Testament comes the much-anticipated New Testament edition. For over a decade, Brendan Powell Smith, creator of popular website, has been hard at work using LEGO® to re-create scenes from the Bible. Now, in one volume, he has brought together over 1,000 “brick” photographs depicting the narrative story of the New Testament. From the life of Jesus—his birth, teachings, and parables—to the famous last supper scene and the crucifixion; from the fate of Judas to the life of Paul and his letters to the Ephesians; from the first book burning to the book of Revelations, this is the New Testament as you’ve never experienced it before.

Smith combines the actual text of the New Testament with his brick photographs to bring to life the teachings, miracles, and prophecies of the most popular book in the world. The graphic novel format makes these well-known Bible stories come to life in a fun and engaging way. And the beauty of The Brick Bible: The New Testament is that everyone, from the devout to nonbelievers, will find something breathtaking, fascinating, or entertaining within this impressive collection.

Eine tolle Idee die biblischen Geschichte(n) so darzustellen. Kinder sind begeistert, aber auch für erwachsene ist es toll die ganzen Details zu sehen. Gelungene Sache, freue mich auf weitere Bände.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Bible: It is what it is. 14. November 2012
Von E. Pyle - Veröffentlicht auf
When a person decides to illustrate the Bible, they are met with a choice: To illustrate it for children (with literal interpretations tossed aside, blood, sex, and violence removed), or to illustrate it as it reads. It's a tough decision, obviously. Most adults are probably not interested in an illustrated holy text. But children? Children eat that stuff up.

Especially when Legos are involved.

But The Brick Bible is not a children's Bible. And I can not stress that enough. Does that mean that it's not appropriate for children? Well...let me ask the New King James Version appropriate for children?

Personally, I think The Brick Bible is an excellent way to introduce children to the beliefs held by Christians and Jews, where it is necessary for children to have an understanding of the beliefs of the people around them. For instance, we live in a heavily religious section of the United States. My oldest son is made to sing songs about God and Heaven in public school. No one in this area even thinks twice about such a thing as being inappropriate or against the law. So, when other kids at school try to convince my son that there's really an invisible devil that actively tries to get my son to make bad choices, I think it's important that my son have a basic framework for analyzing these claims, and understanding from where they originate.

And, for me, that's the practical empowerment of The Brick Bible.

But put all of that aside, and you'll find that The Brick Bible is also an incredibly creative endeavor, where the author expertly crafts scenes that work well at telling a story. There are a few builds in particular that are so well done, you spend a few minutes marveling at them, and you realize that this isn't just a translation of the Bible. It's a work of art--an art with no peers. There's nothing else like this anywhere, and the author should be commended for his excellent skill and creativity, and for publishing this book as an entertaining and informative text, and not part of a biased agenda.

My 1st grade nephew cannot put this book down. He is a big lego fan and looks through it over and over. Then he asks questions about the Bible stories it tells.

Bible stories, in pictures. Straight forward, no Sunday school fluff. Parents need to use their heads and decide when their kids are mature enough to read this, not complain that it's inappropriate.

It's a very graphic bible but it certainly doesn't misrepresent. My kids were very intrigued and that is not easy with a 14 year old boy.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not for Christians! Not suitable for (or marketed to) children! Atheist mocks God's Word- Details below 15. Dezember 2013
Von whatwordscannotexpress(dot)weebly(dot)com - Veröffentlicht auf
We checked this book out from the library because our kids like Legos and we believe in the Bible. A quick flip through looking at the first few pages and everything looks okay. However, the farther in you get, the more misleading and vile this book's interpretation of God's Word is. This is NOT endorsed by Lego and this is NOT written or put together by a Christian (author is rumored to be an atheist and there seems to be no evidence online one way or the other).

There is fake blood in the form of using small, clear red bricks piled near/on Lego body parts, but in other places there is red paint/clay put on the Legos in splatter/scratch-like marks that is more disturbing. This is not nearly as disturbing as the author's "interpretation" of certain scriptures. For example, when Jesus visited Nazareth the first time, he preached in the Synagogue, reading from the book of Isaiah,"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me..." and the people were angered and led him out of the city with the intention to throw him off a cliff. "But he passing through the midst of them went on his way" {Luke 4}. The second time Jesus visited Nazareth it is reported He "could do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands on a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marveled at their unbelief. {Mark 6:5-6}" Some translations say that, "Jesus could do no miracles there because of their unbelief." Also, in Luke 14, Jesus is having a meal at a Pharisees home and they are having a heated discussion of what it means to be a follower of Christ. Jesus explains that it is costly to become a disciple and one must consider Jesus to be more worthy than all other relationships and endeavors in this life.

The author of this book perverts these passages by putting them together into this blasphemous story line: (The following are sequential quotations from The Brick Bible: The New Testament and I am not omitting any words or sentences in the midst of these quotes to misrepresent the authors interpretation/spin.The "..." are included in the book.) He writes: "Do you think I have come to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but hostility! From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two... ... and two against three. I have come to set son against father... ...daughter against mother... ... and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law. If anyone does not hate his father, mother, children, brothers, sisters, and yes, even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Many who heard him were astonished and said,' Where did he get these ideas? Isn't this the carpenter? The son of Mary and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And aren't his sisters here with us?' The people in the synagogue were furious. They drove him out of the town and took him to the edge of the hill to throw him down the cliff. He could do n o miracle there, but he slipped through the crowd and went on his way." The photo also depicts that as Jesus runs away from the cliff, some other person is falling over the edge screaming.

Basically, it shows Jesus saying his followers should hate their family (while depicting family members killing one another) and when the people try to run him out of town, he is weak and a coward who can't perform miracles and runs away while a towns-person falls to his death. This is NOT accurate as far as the chronology, the context, or the character of God that is presented.

It's the product of allowing someone with no respect for the God, the Bible, or even classic literature to take a scissors to the verses in the Bible and paste only the ones they choose, in whatever order they choose, to paint a very sick and twisted suggestion of what, in their opinion, may have happened, or would simply be an entertaining read- you know, to get a good laugh at Christians who believe in Jesus and God as being loving and just.

Do not get this book to try and pique someone's curiosity about the Bible just because they love Legos. It will do more harm than good.
