Nothing cheers self-proclaimed reverend Brendan Powell Smith as much as divulging the Bible. For that, he thought it would be a good idea to illustrate Bible stories with LEGO constructions, which he would later photograph and post on his website. In 2001 he created his website and in 2003 he started posting several didactic books with his pictures. Curently, his website has over 300 illustrated Bible stories and over 3000 photographs.
The construction is ingenious and extremely creative. The scenes are created directly out of the Bible passages and everything is made out of LEGOs, with the exception of the sky and the texts (which are added afterwards to the pictures). Aditionally, some LEGOs are adapted or altered using a hobby knife and some props are added. Also, some facial expressions and garments are drawn using permanent ink markers.
We can already find some of the most well-known stories from both the Old and New Testaments, photographed in several episodes, online. As an example, here are two episodes: 'The Crossing of the Red Sea' and 'The Flood'. The rest you can see at The Brick Testament.
