    Anyone here have any of these action figures, whether of the dark or light skin variety? Could you comment on their "training" effectiveness?

    I sorta like the tattered and battered Job figure. Looks like he might still have some boils or something. In cohorts with Satan, God really put him through a lot.

    Interesting that they have a 'dark' set and 'light' set, when most of them were Hebrews.

    Maybe someone will design a set of chess pieces off of them.

    Kick Ass! There were some other very interesting differences in the other figures. The black Solomon was truly pimped out. Also the Job figure looked a whole lot worse off to me than the white Job. This helps me to understand the Book of Job in a whole new light.

    This is all racist rhetoric.

    We are all equal. Yes or no?

    Racist in what way? Are you saying the dolls are racist? Let's start with that and we'll get to the other question later.

    So, the purpose of these dolls is to help people identify with a Jesus/
    Eve/Mary/Goliath like them? So, if the child is black, they will be better
    able to relate with the Bible if Jesus is black and vice versa?

    How about the truth for a change? Since Jesus was neither black
    nor white but Jewish, why not give Him decidedly Semitic features and
    teach your child that He/they didn't look anything like you or me?

    Because that might lead to the ridiculous assumption that god look snothing like this http://www.yorkshiresoul.org/monty%20python%20god.jpg and where would that leave us?

    Interesting how the site assumes that children will identify with action figures of the same skin color but doesn't do anything about the long beards, middle eastern clothes etc. Does anyone even know if Jesus had a beard anyway?
