I still get emotional some nights when I read the few sentences from this book at the start of Behold the Lamb of God. Sally Lloyd-Jones conveys in storybook form exactly what I was hoping to convey with the songs from Behold the Lamb: that Jesus is the “missing puzzle piece that makes all the other pieces fit together,” so that “suddenly, you can see a beautiful picture.” If you haven’t read this book yet (and no, you don’t have to have kids to enjoy this one), this video might help you see why we in the Rabbit Room love it so much.
There’s a deluxe edition of the book available that includes David Suchet’s amazing narration (which you’ll hear in the video). We put it on at night so my daughter Skye can read along, which is not only good for her heart and mine, it makes for really cute pictures like this one.
We’re selling The Jesus Storybook Bible on the Rabbit Room table on the Behold the Lamb tour (along with books by Jonathan Rogers, A.S. Peterson, Jennifer Trafton, Sara Clarkson, and yours truly), but if you can’t make it to one of the shows you can click here to order the book from the Rabbit Room.
