While we’re thinking about music, this year is the 10th anniversary of Andrew Peterson’s Behold the Lamb of God. In celebration there is a 10th anniversary 2-disc edition being released which has a live disc and a remastered disc with an new song on it as well. You get an immediate digital download of the live album when you purchase the 2-disc set.
If you have not heard this album, you should. It tells the story of Christmas, but more than that it tells the story of the whole scriptures. A biblical theology set to music, masterfully told, and beautifully played/sung. We got the DVD last year, and watching it will be a Luehrmann Christmas tradition for years to come. Depending on the size of your church and music resources, you can buy a full musical score with everything needed to produce it at your church. For the hackers like me, there is a song book (which also includes mandolin and hammered dulcimer parts too!). I’m not sure how early you start listening to Christmas music, but we find some of the most Christ-focused songs in this genre. So, get started today! Be blessed as you listen to the story of Christ, the Lamb of God.
