I didn’t even know this existed until Wife brought it home from the book store the other day. She figured it was a good way to have the kids learn more about the Bible. And, oh my goodness have they been learning about the Bible!
To say this isn’t what I expected is an understatement. You can read more below the break.
Basically, this is the Old Testament in graphic novel form using Lego’s. And, I gotta say… it’s great!
The schools where I live aren’t the best so my kids go to a religious school. The religious ed classes at school have increased the kids knowledge of the far beyond that of Wife and I. So, I guess, Wife bought this as much for us as she did for the kids.
Anyway, for those that don’t remember, it was a rough and tumble time during the old testament and the Lego Bible doesn't skimp on any of the action.
And my personal favorite is the continuing saga of David, of David and Goliath fame. As part of a quest to win his true love's hand in marriage, the King demands 200 foreskins as payment. So, first David kills a whole slew of people, and then gives the King a bucket of Lego single pieces. I am never gonna look at those little pieces the same again.
