I use this book with my Grandchildren but I also use it once a year on Missions Trips to Africa. It is very effective when I use it over several days to share God's beautiful story of redemption. The pictures are lovely and it holds the children's attention. I have just purchased several copies to share as a gift with others.
This book is fantastic. It very clearly spells out the gospel message in an age appropriate manner. My daughter loves our time reading this book. The pictures are beautiful and do a wonderful job of adding to the books overall quality. I love that the pictures contain things like dinosaurs and creepy crawly bugs along side what you would expect to see mixed in with the "standard" creation account.
This book has even helped me to completely grasp what it truly means for Jesus to be our lamb by examining the old testimate sacrifice of a lamb and how it atones for our sins. This book does not shy away from topics we are often afraid to handle or are not sure how to handle with small children like death and our sin deserving death. They are handled in a direct yet tender maner.
I cannot wait for my son and other daughter to be old enough to share this book with them as well. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
EXCELLENT book! As a new believer, I read the book 'The Stranger' by John Cross -- it helped me understand my sin and my need for a saviour. I still read the book as an encouragement from time to time. I highly recommend 'The Stranger' to anyone wanting to understand the bible. I always wanted something similar for children, but found books were either too heavy on words, or too simple that they missed the mark. 'The Lamb', also by John Cross, is what I had been hoping for. I definately recommend this book as a help along with the Bible, for anyone who is serious about teaching children about the Lord.
