A Tale of Two Books: Book I

Deuteronomy 23:1
'A man whose testicles have been crushed...'

Today, I'm going to tell you a story of two books. Yesterday, I got Rolling Stone's annual "Hot" issue...generally an excuse to show some almost naked, spread-out actresses from second-tier WB teen dramas. This year's "Hot Blasphemy" category went to Brandon Powell Smith, who has been illustrating the entire bible, one book at a time, since 2001. Like Amy Hughes (who built the lego church featured in XC last month), Brandon has a thing for legos. He's not afraid to get a bit more "old testament" as they say--he doesn't shy away from the juicy portions of the bible. The Brick Testament is filled with murder, rape, bestiality, drunkenness, and deception (not to mention pillars of salt). Smith already has three books under his belt, which you can buy HERE. It's not your Granny's bible! (Actually, it is, but Granny won't admit to dwelling on the naughty bits)
