Like most kids at their age, my six and seven year olds both love Legos! It’s the gift they are always the most excited to get and mom and dad are the least excited to see! Thankfully the Faith Buidlers Bible is something we could all get on board with!
This Bible is designed with the Lego lover in mind and I really like all the references to the beloved bricks. Even the title Faith BUILDERS is a cute reference. The cover depicts many of the characters from popular Bible stories as Lego’s and that continues on the inside. I know that this will probably get mixed reviews because the very serious minded feel that this is disrespectful. I can see how some would feel that way but I’m more of the belief that as long as it stays true to the Bible and is a way to get kids to open it, I’m all for it.
Inside the Lego fun continues with Building Books of the Bible where it shows them organized and stacked as Legos with the books of the Bible on them. I thought this was a particularly cute feature. Then there is a Can you Build section with great tools for the young ones to study the Bible.
The rest of the Lego pictures can be found scattered throughout the Bible on their own separate pages where it has a picture of a popular story, a breakdown of the story and then a Building Black Verse. I really like these because they serve as great memory verses and I think the Lego pictures will help kids remember and drive the point home. There aren’t as many of these as I’d like to see but they help drive the point home.
I think it’s important to remember that different things make people open a book and the Bible is no exception. If Lego’s are what makes a little boy or girl decide to give the Bible a read, I fully support the Faith Builders Bible!
