About the Book
Anthony DeStefano bases this children's story on the parable of the lost sheep. While one small lamb wanders away from his Good Shepherd's pastures, he meets a wolf, a lion, and a mean lying snake. Feeling very frightened and lost, he's surprised to see who's come to his rescue.
Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano weaves the heart of the parable of the lost sheep into an exciting adventure story for children ages three and older. When paired with Richard Cowdrey's brightly colored illustrations, the tale of repentance and forgiveness is brought to life.
Amidst a flock of a hundred sheep, one small lamb is convinced that the world beyond his Good Shepherd's pastures is worth exploring. While on his big adventure, the little sheep unexpectedly meets a very hungry wolf, a huge angry lion, and a mean lying snake that tries to convince him that his Good Shepherd is cruel and unforgiving. But just when he feels trapped and frightened, lost and alone, he hears a most wonderful sound.
He had left all his flock
For one sheep who was lost--
To rescue and save him
No matter the cost.
