Very odd book find

I was in Barnes and Noble, and saw The Brick Bible by Brendan Smith. Probably the most bizarre thing I've seen in a long time. To be fair, though, the back of the book says that Lego "does not sponsor, authorize, or endorse this product."

Still, gives a whole new perspective on the Old Testament. If this is a thread necro, please merge with existing thread.

    The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith (what he calls himself) has a whole web site for this known as the The Brick Testament. It's a pretty old site, but Brendan updates it fairly regularly. I knew he was talking about a printed version, but never it.

    Brendan's website is to some people rather disturbing... a lot of minifig massacres, some Sodom & Gomorrah scenes (mercifully he didn't get into THAT much specifics there)... and other scenes that are definitely NOT for children.

    Whenever I view it... I sometimes wonder just what lesson he's trying to teach...

    When I first saw it I thought (as a Christian myself) it was quite a good idea, but, yeah, not all of the Bible is too politically correct, and I've rather gone off it now that he's finished with all the 'nice' stories and started with some of the others...I haven't looked at the website recently, but I seem to remember some of his 'personal' beliefs being a little dodgy, too.

    Basically, from what I understand, he's an atheist who's out to show all the parts of the Bible that might make you think similarly. His selections from the Bible have usually focused on contradictory or politically incorrect (by modern standards) passages, while still telling the story. He generally only quotes the Bible directly (and where his own wording is used, it's pretty clear), but his opinion is often made pretty clear by the imagery used.

    I've heard from Brendan that he gets a wide variety of responses. Some religious people praise him for showing the Bible in a different medium, and some detest his efforts, believing he's attempting to drive people away from Christianity. Regardless of your viewpoint, though, it makes for very interesting reading.
