    Don't listen to the previous reviewer

    The person who reviewed the book previously obviously did not read the book and only saw the website. The book does not have any of the sexual images in it except one if you look very closely at one of the images. The book is only about the book of Genesis and unfortunelly it is only 1/4 of the book of Genesis and that is the reason why I am giving it 4 stars. The only content that parents might think is inappropiate for children is maybe the animal sacrafice which they tend to censor from the Bible. Though the whole flood scene and perhaps the attempted murder Abraham made might be inappropiate depending on the parent. To answer the reason why author has put the book in Legos is to illustrate the book. The Legos are there to make fun of the Bible and expose it's countless absurdities, cruelities, and contradictions that are filled in the Bible. Several of freethinkers and even Christians who are not very religious have found Brendan's book and the website to amusing.

    An excellent teaching companion

    I am always looking for new and fun ways to introduce young people to the Bible. My job has been made so much easier with the publication of the Brick Testament. This delightful depiction of the Bible in Legos is the perfect book to have available for the students in our classes¿it has also had the wonderful side benefit of tickling the fancy of the teachers of our classes. The text is accurate and straightforward but it is the Lego pictures that capture and engage. There is some whimsy in the author¿s depictions of the story of Genesis and I say Hallelujah for this. The stories from Genesis present a strong message of morality that is often a challenge to the teachers of the young. Having the message played out in the colorful bricks by an imaginative artist, softens the harshness of the text but not at the expense of the message. This book really is a gift to all teachers of the Bible to young ones. My hope is that the author continues his creative efforts so we can all look forward to more well-considered and intelligent Lego art depictions of the Bible.

    Clever

    It's a clever look into the Bible. This is clearly a parody of the Bible (something the previous reviewer failed to notice) and is an excellent book for anyone who has a sense of humour.

    Not a book for children or tastefully illustrated either

    The use of legos was a neat idea but I found that this is DEFINITELY not a book for children or for that matter, adults either. While it may be scripturally accurate, it certainly isn't appropriate. The pictures portray sexual relations btwn Adam & Eve (in a position that some consider inappropriate), homosexual acts, rape, and incest. I also didn't find the chosen scripture stories appropriate for children. Yes, these things are in the bible but I don't really consider the illustrations of these acts something that indicates reverance for the Original Author of the Bible. This author falls woefully short in offering something that would inspire young children towards holiness. In reading the media's review of this book, you will only find endorsements by the secular community. I find that to portray these acts in the form of legos only serves to lure children & their parents into a purchase. If it wasn't meant for children - why use legos at all? Probably 90% of the pictures were really great - just so disappointing about the rest of the content.
