Despite the fact that these stories are depicted using Lego characters, they are definitely not geared for children. For this reason, I found the book rather ambiguous. Mr. Smith may have meant this to be an original look at the Bible, but reading through this book made me uncomfortable. Children's toys should not be depicting adult themes such as drunkenness and murder.

This book features stories from that wacky book "The Bible" and they are all depicted completely with legos! I'm serious! Never before has the bible actually been interesting. See if you can find the lego beastiality (apparently that's like sinful). It's hard to spot!
This books rules...But you don't have to take my word for it! Da da duh!

If you have Lego boys and girls, and want to have fun with Bible stories, this is fabulous!

not a bad primer and with a cliff hanger to boot.

Very clever, great imagery!
Jan 04, 2012 Suzanne rated it really liked it
Overall enjoyable. I am disappointed that Smith ends abruptly with Joseph being brought to Egypt in chains. Joseph's dream interpretations, rise to power under Pharaoh, and his dramatic family reunion all seem Lego-worthy to me.

This is just good stuff. A sense of humour is a must. The Book of Genesis acted out by Legos!
