Before the dawn of time a plan was made... a plan to save and a plan to love, a plan to rescue and a plan to send. One after the other people were sent to be where they were needed to be. In the distance wise men ride camels through the desert. A star glimmers in the night sky. They have a long way to go and many months of travel ahead of them. Some shepherds stand guard over their flock of sheep as a young couple struggle the last few miles of a tiring journey desperate for shelter and a place to sleep. All have been sent to one place for one event that will change the world forever.
The one and only saviour of the world will be born that night in a stable, in a little country called Israel in a little town called Bethlehem. The key part of the plan is a baby and His name will be Jesus for he will save his people from their sins.

"Amongst the best that I have read ... this book was a pure delight to read from start to finish. What touched me was the way in which the finale of this book provides a doorway for a young child to invite Jesus into their own life through the provision of special prayers. A lovely - and potentially life changing - gift." - Presbyterian Herald
"... attractively produced, with full page, colour illustrations... Sinclair Ferguson shows how Jesus coming into the world was part of 'the plan that began before time began." - Evangelical Times
