Publisher Comments:

Two years ago, Brendan Powell Smith embarked on a crusade to illustrate the entire Bible - all 66 books of the Old and New Testament - using only Lego bricks. Here, for the first time in print, are the earliest fruits of his labors.

With more than 175 photographs in all, The Brick Testament: Stories from the Book of Genesis features ten classic tales as you've never seen them before: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah's Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Tower of Babel, and more. Every story is accompanied by original verses from scripture - and photographs of intricately detailed models composed out of thousands of Lego bricks. Whether you're a Christian fundamentalist, a devout atheist, or somewhere in between, you're bound to be dazzled by Smith's thoroughly original artistic vision.

About the Author

Little is known about “The Reverend” Brendan Powell Smith. His life is a mysterious enigma of puzzling paradoxes, enigmatic puzzles, and paradoxical mysteries. He keeps his public life private, and will take most of his secrets with him to the grave.

 

Though it remains unclear why Smith has chosen to illustrate the Bible in LEGO, most scholars and theologians agree it is of little use to question such matters. In near constant communication with God, “The Reverend” Brendan Powell Smith is perhaps, if not possibly, the closest thing we have to a living modern-day prophet.
