"What Brendan Powell Smith has done with LEGOs goes beyond remarkable; it borders on genius."--The Chicago Tribune

What could be more fun for children than reading Bible stories and seeing the tales illustrated with LEGO bricks? Here are the stories of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark, Daniel and the Lion's Den, The Tower of Babel, and so much more in glorious full color

Brendan Powell Smith has spent years creating nearly 5,000 scenes from the bible--with LEGOs. His wonderfully original creations offer the Old Testament from creation to the Books of Kings,

The Holy Bible is complex; sometimes dark, and other times joyous, and Smith's masterful work makes it accessible to young boys and girls by using toys to tell our most important stories in a brand-new way.

The beauty of The Brick Bible is that everyone, from the most devout Christians and Jews to nonbelievers, will find something revealing fascinating, or entertaining within this collection. Smith's subtle touch brings out the nuances of each scene and makes you reconsider the way you look at LEGOs and The Bible.

Exploring Exodus: The Origins of Biblical Israel
Exploring Exodus
The Origins of Biblical Israel
Paperback      ISBN: 0805210636

The book of Exodus records the pivotal events in the formation of biblical Israel--the deliverance from slavery, the leadership of Moses, the wilderness wanderings, and the giving of the Law at Mount Sinai. Bible scholar Nahum Sarna, whose widely praised Understanding Genesis has become a standard text, examines and illuminates the distinctiveness of the Exodus narrative in light of ancient Near Eastern history and contemporaneous cultures--Egyptian, Assyrian, Canaanite, and Babylonian. In a new foreword to this edition, Sarna takes up the debate over whether the exodus from Egypt really happened, clarifying the arguments on both sides and drawing us back to the uniqueness and enduring significance of biblical text.

The Fall of Satan: Rebels in the Garden
The Fall of Satan
Rebels in the Garden
Paperback      ISBN: 0890516065

The ruler of darkness, the Tempter, the Great Red Dragon, Apollyon, the Destroyer. One being is revealed to have all these titles and more; names that reveal his horrific nature. All names given to Satan, your adversary who comes like a lion "seeking whom he may devour." (1 Peter 5:8). Today, many question and even mock the very existence of Satan, as well as the reality of evil. Even in the Church, by and large, there are few biblical resources on the subject to counter the destructive claims raised in today's humanistic culture. In The Fall of Satan: Rebels in the Garden you will discover the answers to 35 captivating questions, such as: *How could one created good become so absorbed by evil? * Why would God, who is not evil, allow evil to continue to exist? *Did sin begin with Adam or was its origin found in Satan? *When did Satan rebel against God's authority? Where can the answers be found to such provocative, spiritual questions that have been asked so many times over? Carefully consider the biblical response, since it is the only completely reliable foundation for information about Satan. As our absolute authority, we must reject unqualified conclusions drawn from sources outside the Bible, such as the current ideas and traditions of the culture. No believer should be unaware of these sound answers found in the Bible.
