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.

    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.

    This is my current favorite children's book

    Posted by Priscilla on 11th Mar 2016

    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 must need for every home and church library!

    Posted by donnamclain on 13th Jun 2013

    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)

    Here is an effective tool for young children to grasp theological truths!

    Posted by efo284 on 13th Jun 2013

    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)
