Prospective buyers need to be aware that the author is not a Christian - see his Facebook entry. In an on-line interview Smith states “I have to say my favourite Bible character is Yahweh himself. I don’t think I would have been nearly as inspired to create this project if it weren’t for the continuous outrageous and depraved actions of the Bible’s main character. Power-mad, belligerent, masochistic, petty, woefully insecure, extremely dangerous and unpredictable (and seemingly not too bright) Yahweh exhibits all the worst attributes of man”.

I would not recommend buying this book for anyone, adult or child.
The photos are brilliant and make best use of the natural limitations of lego bricks. Sometimes the disadvantages of lego versus freely drawn images cause problems, and occasionally I thought the images were designed to be deliberately provocative rather than considering properly the target age range e.g too much of Bathsheba showing in the bath scene and Rehab wearing a bikini top.
The language used was interesting. It was much closer to an original bible translation than most Bible story books. But despite the comic book style it doesn't use speech or thought bubbles...which makes it less engaging.
In terms of content both volumes only cover narrative sections of scripture, whereas the Action Bible, which is aimed at a similar market genuinely aims to cover the whole Bible.
In conclusion, primary age kids would quickly engage with it. But personally I'd choose the Action Bible over this.
He absolutely loved it and has spent many hours pouring over it and laughing and absorbing it all
It is a little gruesome in places( I can only imagine what the OLD Testament must be like) but frankly 9 year olds love gruesome.
