He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young
. {Isaiah 40:11}

Christmas Favs 2001 {Behold the Lamb Book}

Sweetest of Hubs found this a few weeks ago...
If you're at all familiar with Sally Lloyd-Jones' Jesus Storybook Bible or Andrew Petereson's Behold the Lamb Christmas album then you already have a basis for understanding this book.
Behold the Lamb {the book}, written by Russ Ramsey, starts from the beginning... the VERY beginning.
It starts with Adam and Eve and walks through the history leading up to Christ and shows the common thread throughout all of Scripture that Christ has been part of the plan all along.
It's a beautiful story, written with great detail and care. It goes into the mundane of the Old Testement stories we've heard all along and finds the simple beauty of the truth and tenderness of God's love for His people from the start.
It's written in twenty-five short chapters which makes it great for advent reading like Hubs and I are doing, but that doesn't mean you can't order and read it all at once!
This day, THIS Monday, is the day that the Lord has made!
