“Wouldn’t it be great,” ponders reviewer Ken P. of IGN, “if someone with much more free time than me were to recreate the stories of the Bible using Legos?” The answer, it seems, is an unqualified yes, and so it is that Rev. Smith’s new book The Brick Testament: Stories from the Book of Genesis finds itself at the top of this week’s IGN Shopping Guide, placed well above the latest Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and the “Three’s Company: The First Season” DVD. Of Smith’s combination of ancient Bible stories and “those ubiquitous building blocks of geek life”, Ken P. gushes “it’s a truly beautiful thing.”
