How do we explain the gospel to children in a way that they can understand? How do we explain their need for a Saviour without watering down the details? How can we hold their attention long enough to explain what the Bible is all about? How can we be accurate yet sensitive to the fact that they need simpler explanations?

“The Lamb” is a book written for children five to ten years of age. Engaging children with its full-colour illustrations, this picture book takes children on a journey through the heart of the Bible’s message. Starting with the creation of the universe, the book explains key biblical concepts: Who is God? What is God like? What is sin? Where did evil come from? Why do we need a Saviour? The book concludes with a clear explanation of the identity of Jesus and his amazing provision as our Saviour.

The book makes a clear link between Jesus and the Old Testament sacrificial lamb. Issues like death are dealt with in an honest, straightforward manner. The graphic details surrounding the story of salvation are handled sensitively but not watered down.  At the end, children will have an explanation of who God is and what he did for mankind on the cross. It is a message of hope that every child should hear.

    The Lamb

    Posted by Christine Tetrault on 19th Dec 2021

    Such a wonderful book. We borrowed a copy from friends, and it was a great presentation of the gospel, not just for little kids, but for older people as well. I decided that we needed to have our own copy so that we could go through this book together again and again.

    The Lamb

    Posted by Don Dolton on 25th Oct 2021

    The easy to read format is really helpful for teaching English as a second language here in Mexico. The beautiful illustrations capture the attention of our students while the text is being read. Having heard this clear gospel message we pray that God would open their hearts and minds to believe God’s Word.

    Opportunity to share the best true story ever told!

    Posted by dee on 28th Mar 2021

    I have 15 grandchildren and my prayer is that they will each come to know and love the Lord. With this is mind I try to be purposeful when buying gifts. The Lamb proved to be a great after supper read with questions and conversation starters. Completely biblically based and written in a way for young children to understand. They don't need more stuff! They need this message!

    Great gift for young families

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Apr 2020

    We bought 16 books to give to families with new babies in our church. Thought it would be much more valuable than more clothes, especially when it is not the first baby.

    keeps kid's attention

    Posted by Nancy on 1st Mar 2020

    I am reading this book to my AWANA kids, ages 6-8. They are attentive, enjoy the pictures and are engaged in answering the questions. They also ask questions about what they hear or see on the pages. Looking forward to how God blesses.

    Best tool ever for teaching children the Gospel!

    Posted by Ricardo and Jennifer Murga on 26th Nov 2018

    I am a New Tribes(Ethnos360) MK. My husband and I went through The Lamb many times in our family devotional time to teach our children the gospel, and also used it in teaching our young ones at church. We have given copies of The Lamb to relatives and friends in the hope that they will read it and teach it to their children as well. It is a wonderful book that teaches the gospel very clearly. The pictures in it are beautiful and the text is easy to follow and understand. It is very well written! We recently purchased more copies to give as gifts to the kids in my AWANA class. We pray each child, or adult, who reads The Lamb will come to know the Perfect Lamb who died in their place!...One thing we do wish is that it would be available in bookstores in the United States! So far, we have not found it, but we are thankful to be able to at least get the book from Canada! :-) Thank you!

    We learned along with our kids.

    Posted by Miles on 13th Oct 2016

    We thought we understood the gospel when we started reading this book to our kids. It turns out our understanding was greatly clarified and strengthened. We have given it as a gift to many families.
