About the BookWeaving together Scripture, history and love, this retelling of the story of the young Jesus, starting from his early years in Egypt, and going back to his ancestors, shows how God included many races and nations in this timeless story.
Book SynopsisCelebrate Christmas with this unique retelling of the Nativity story featuring Jesus as a melanated baby in a story that's rich with Scripture, historical accuracy, and a multicultural weaving of love--from the author of Crowned with Glory. Like Moses, brown baby Jesus would be a deliverer. Like Rahab, brown baby Jesus would save His people from destruction. Like David, brown baby Jesus would rule as a great king. Like the colorful threads that make up a beautiful cloth, Brown Baby Jesus brings together the characters and stories leading to Jesus--showing how God included many races and nations in the story we celebrate each year. With an unconventional Christmas setting of Egypt and written in sweet, lyrical prose, Brown Baby Jesus is sure to become a holiday classic embraced by families of all races and backgrounds.

This is a beautiful story of baby Jesus and beautifully illustrated. I love having a book to read with my grandchildren that shows Jesus with the skin color of the culture he was born.
