I am Brendan Powell Smith, an atheist who has spent 10 years illustrating the Bible in LEGO. Ask me anything.
My short bio: I am the creator of The Brick Testament website, an ongoing project to illustrate the entire Bible in LEGO bricks. Working with a publisher in recent years, I've authored and illustrated The Brick Bible series of books: an Old Testament and New Testament collection intended for older children, teens, and adults, and a series of picture books for younger readers called The Brick Bible for Kids. In all of these Bible-related projects, I've endeavored to let the Bible speak for itself. All the stories are retold using direct quotes from scripture with chapter and verse cited. I'm very pleased that this approach has won fans among the full spectrum of belief from the devoutly religious to ardent atheists.
Latest project: My latest LEGO-illustrated book is a departure from the Bible and covers a niche of American history. It's called Assassination! The Brick Chronicle of Attempts on the Lives of Twelve US Presidents. Here's a timely excerpt from my new Assassination! book: http://assassinationbook.com/jfk/
Hello? Is this thing on?: The main IAmA action was on 11/23/13, but I'll check in here every so often and answer any interesting questions that haven't already been answered for as long as people feel like asking them. So ask away.
