Behold the Lamb of God

Andrew Peterson's "Behold the Lamb of God" is a truly great Christmas album. It serves as a kind of primer on biblical history. The songs point to God's good hand of providence moving from the first inklings of Messiah in the Old Testament to the birth narratives to the ministry and atoning work of Christ. There is even a song on the geneology of Jesus which is an impressive display of lyrical dexterity.

From now and until Christmas I will be posting videos from a live performance of "Behold the Lamb of God."

Any blogster who is willing to mention Andrew Peterson's name on his blog is well worth his salt...to me. :)

Have you ever been to see Andy and the guys perform this concert?

It is pretty astonishing how compelling "the story" is in music form. It brought me to tears both times I've seen it.

I had a chance to go see Andy and comapany in Dallas this year but couldn't get away. My best friend Dave in Houston sent me the CD a few years ago. I've been hooked ever since.

Behold the Lamb of God was in Augusta last year! It's a shame you couldn't make it. Put it on the calendar for next year! :)
