Finally, biblical stories the way they were intended to be told— entirely with Legos!
At 4,500 illustrations of over 400 stories, The Brick Testament is the largest illustrated version of the Bible ever. And everything except the background sky is built of Lego sets dating back to the 1960s. The Brick Testament was built and photographed by one guy: the Reverend Brendan Powell Smith (he isn’t actually an ordained member of any church).
Since its creation in 2001 the project has become a popular book series that feature Smith’s own retellings as well as direct quotes. The aim is to make the Bible more fun and accessible for people. And though the project is light-hearted and often comic, it’s also incredibly intricate and precise. Smith’s attention to detail is staggering. When I was a kid I usually just melted the Lego men or buried them alive in the sandbox. The brick Testament is slightly more impressive.
