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.

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.
The Lamb is our go to resource for children and families. Thank you so much for this book.
I have been reading 1-2 chapters to the moms and children coming to my monthly mom's support group meeting. It has sharpened my understanding of God and has helped me to articulate the Gospel message better. Any parents or grandparents I have showed this book to have wanted to buy their own copy. I have sent German copies overseas to Catholic relatives as an inspirational gift for Easter. They have loved it!
A friend recommended the book for younger children. I used it in my first grade Sunday school class. I had one little girl who often didn’t get the SS lesson/message or details when we reviewed. I don’t know if it was the beautiful illustrations that captured her attention but when it came to asking the questions she answered everyone of them correctly. When we concluded the book, I gave each child a copy of the CD. They were thrilled. That same girl insisted that her mother sit down with her to listen that very day. I am confident that two of the students understood the Gospel completely. Now we just have to wait on the Holy Spirit for the conviction. We also used the video during our VBS. Thank you for such a well thought book and easy to understand. I will definitely be using the book again. (Originally posted on July 14, 2011)
I have been going through the book with our two sons 5 & 3…. Now our first son is almost 6 and so close to understanding the main point of Jesus….. we are so thrilled with this book and recommend it to all of our friends! (Originally posted on June 05, 2009)
Thank you for creating this book. I am using it to teach 40 kids K-2ndGrade at AWANA. The illustrations really capture their attention. And the content is systematically presented so that churched and unchurched groups in my kids are all learning new things. I taught chp.4 tonight and some kids were trying to talk ahead of the lesson because they are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve. But the clear presentation of the consequences of sins (physical death, separation from God, eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire) really seemed to make an impression on them. Everyone became quiet and sober. I think these truths are difficult to teach to young children, but The Lamb does it well. I highly recommend The Lamb. (Originally posted on February 06, 2009)
I have been reading “The Lamb” with my children at night for the past week and they absolutely LOVE it! They love the lifelike pictures, especially the grandpa rescuing the kid out of the river. That really communicates to kids! I just want to commend you for working on those resources. (Originally posted on October 31, 2008)
This is the clearest gospel teaching book I have seen for kids. Ever. Its tone (both in graphics and text) is serious but beautiful and simple to understand. I have been buying books for my church library and I have yet to find one that is as clear on the gospel without being really drawn out (The Lamb has ten short chapters). It has cleared up adults’ understanding of the gospel as they understand with clarity the old testament lamb sacrifice and how that was foreshadowing Christ: our lamb. Ultimately, our focus should be the greatness of the message of the gospel. But this book is an excellent for getting that message across—I am so happy to have been introduced to it.

This book draws out the truths of the scriptures in a simple story format while avoiding difficult language or clichés that can confuse a child’s understanding of salvation. I bought this book to read in Sunday school as well as to my 4 year old and 8 year old daughters at home. The full color illustrations are vibrant and hold their attention. The story is a slow progression with excellent questions at the end of each chapter to ensure comprehension. The story clearly shows who God is in His Holy character and perfect nature. The fall of mankind is made evident resulting in man’s just deserved punishment of Hell. This book doesn’t shelter children from the truths of scripture like the shedding of the innocent lamb’s blood in sinful man’s place, but makes these truths evident in a respectful and Christ-honoring manner. It is essential that even children understand that “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.” Sin requires death and that innocent lamb died in the place of the guilty sinner. I have found that this book is a springboard for conversations with my girls about God’s character and nature during normal daily activities (i.e., dinner, a car ride, shopping, etc.). Our world is so filled with entertainment that Christ is almost squeezed out of our mindset. We also have the lamb DVD that we watch as a family and it entertains us all while teaching us timeless truths. I highly recommend this book for your children or as a gift. I can envision the very real possibility of an unsaved adult being saved while reading this book to their children or grand-children (that is my prayer for my own mother).
