Format: Paperback
Most childrens bibles gloss over 90% of the material and only show you adam&Eve, Noah's Ark, Jonah and the Whale, Joshua, David & Goliath, nativity scene.

This book shows you many of the missing scenes from the bible that most people wouldn't be exposed to!

Love this book - probably not the best for children but hey, neither is the Bible (ESPECIALLY the old testament). There's a lot of good, old fashioned christian hypocrisy going on in these reviews. I challenge you, read the book, compare it to the bible and show the world where it gets it wrong.

You'll notice the book tends to divide people strongly. Most reviews are either five stars or one.

In the former case the reviews appear to come from open minded individuals who are able to understand that the Bible itself is not all popcorn and unicorns. The Author does depict some of the more troubling passages from the Bible but they are _from the Bible_ which is a challenging book.

In the latter case the reviews mostly come from people reviewing the website which depicts nearly the entire bible, good and bad, and not reviews of the book itself. Even when they are of the book it's clear the reviewers are either unfamiliar with the Bible itself or those who white-wash the disturbing parts.

The illustrations in this book are fun and engaging. The thought and time that goes into the dioramas is inspiring. I highly recommend this book for adults who are not narrow minded and parents who are able to talk about reality with their children.

Our son is way into Legos, and this book was great! It's also a fantastic coffee table book and gives all my atheist friends a laugh. It highlights the best parts of the bible! Of course, that's the human sacrifice, incest, genital mutilation and what have you. It's perfect for all you heathens and heathenesses. Buy for your kids and you can have a laugh too. Don't be put off by the reviews, it's a bunch of religious people giving it one star for just the reasons I gave above. Yep, it's true to the Old Testament, in all the right ways. Love it!

Bought this for my son who is 11 and loves Legos. This book has pictures where everything is made of Legos. He loves it and is very interested in the stories. His friends have seen it and I have had parents asking where I got it so they could buy it.

A must have for anyone who is familiar with the bible and also has a sense of humor.

Be alert, it's just not for kids. It's for people that can appreciate the satire.
