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 bricktestament.com, has been hard at work using LEGO#65533; 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.

I love this book the illustrations are great and are very colorful. Number one thing parents should know is that it is meant it is meant for older teens. There is a lot of violence and gore. This is not MEANT FOR KIDS AT ALL. You can get the brick bible for kids. Way better for the younger one's.

:( Disappointed - was looking forward to stories illustrated with Legos, thinking it to be kid friendly. Definitely not so.

Parents should be aware that this book is probably not appropriate for younger children. I'd suggest carefully reading through the entire book before you decide whether you want to expose your child to some of the imagery and the messages being communicated. Don't assume that because it brings together LEGOs and the Bible that it's kid-friendly.
