The Lamb King: God's Eternal Love Story by Patti Mustain
Now that Thanksgiving is closing in on us, it is time to concentrate on all things that we are grateful and thankful for. I don't know about you, but I have a laundry list to be thankful for this year. In fact, I have to praise, HIM, for getting me through one of the most difficult years of my life. As a refresher, I was in a major car wreck, breaking my ulna and radius, fractured to neck vertebras, fractured my shoulder, and tore my rotator cuff. By all accounts, I shouldn't have come out of that wreck alive. The only thing I can figure is that He wasn't finished with me and His eternal love carried me. That's why I love today's BOOK OF THE DAY, "The Lamb King: God's Eternal Love Story," by Patti Mustain. This is certainly a book that I consider a must-read as it is a wonderful account of God's love for His children, without hesitation and without limitations. Enjoy!
The Lamb King...God's eternal love story. The Gospel message from Genesis to Revelation. Through the pages of this book, we will see how God sacrificed Himself, to the point of death, to secure an intimate relationship with humankind. The concept for this book came from my desire to share these truths in a simple way with those who are seeking God. If we aren’t familiar with the “back story” of God’s great love for us, and how it was ultimately realized through His sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, then it is difficult to understand the scope of His love and our need for Him as our personal Savior and King. As you read through these pages, I encourage you to look for the thread of God’s Kingship that is knit within the story. Look also for the thread of sacrificial blood woven throughout, and how the blood-shedding, culminates with Jesus.

I love this little gem. It is so much more than just a book. It is a tool for deepening your relationship with God. The lined pages are perfect for reflection on the verses and chapters of text, and the color photos are such a beautiful addition. The book is the perfect size to carry in a purse and each chapter is concise enough to devour on a park bench at lunch or in the waiting room of a doctor's office. This is a book I will be enjoying for many years to come.

What a wonderful book on many levels! It clearly conveys God's consistent love for and reaching out to all mankind through the centuries. Regardless of the reader's Bible knowledge or belief, this book is easy to understand, well-written, very interesting and supplemented with beautiful photos. Each chapter includes pages for journaling, studying extra verses, contemplation, and prayer. It is also great to read the big picture of God’s heart and His plans through the years. I surveyed the entire book in one hour and was impressed by how God has been constant in His love, forgiveness, and seeking our best throughout history. Although this book is well worth reading on its own merits, I have to mention that, despite being considered a "paperback", the binding and materials far surpass any paperback I've seen, and it seems as durable as any hard-bound book. The Lamb King is well worth your reading.
I love this book! It's very readable for those well versed in the Scriptures but also for someone just seeking to know what the Bible is all about. If one wants to dig deeper, the author asks some thought-provoking questions to ponder and provides plenty of room to journal or write down notes. She also references Scripture verses for further study. The author lays out God's love story that is consistent through the old and new Testaments and I love that she shares her own photographs throughout the book. I'm buying several copies to give as gifts this Christmas season!

I've heard it said that, sometimes, the Bible can be hard to understand. This book is a beautifully simple summary of the story of God's love for us, as written in the Bible. The extremely short chapters are perfect for a daily reading, and the questions offer the chance to go deeper into the subject, if so desired. It is a great book for those who want to understand the Bible more clearly and for those who are asking questions about who God is and why Jesus came to Earth.
This book is an amazing tool to beheld. This book has captured the essence of God's love for us. This book was interactive and encouraged me to reflect and think deeper on these stories in the bible. I love that it gave me space to write my thoughts as I began to read the scripture further and further and was prompted by the questions asked within the book.
The organizational layout of the books is really amazing, with deep and meaningful text, beautiful imagery and space to interactively jot down my thoughts and emotions.
