With The Brick Testament: Stories from the Book of Genesis
, Brendan Smith reimagined ten classic Bible stories using nothing but LEGO bricks -- and the results were praised by everyone from People
and Entertainment Weekly
to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati (they've recommended the book to their entire congregation!). Publishers Weekly
called it "hilarious" and wrote, "One rejoices that the franchise possibilities could extend for many years."
We couldn't agree more. Just in time for the holidays, Quirk Books is proud to present the best-known Bible story of all time: The Story of Christmas
. Using verses from the New Testament and a series of elaborate LEGO dioramas, Smith illustrates the birth of Jesus Christ -- from his arrival in the manger to the wrath of King Herod and the famous visit from the three wise men. It's the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone who celebrates Christmas!
Brendan Powell Smith exhibits his Lego artwork on his acclaimed website www.thebricktestament.com, which has received rave reviews from Time , Spin , National Public Radio, and The Church Times . He lives in Mountain View, California.
