Celebrate 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.

Read an Excerpt

Mary and Joseph made their way through the Egyptian marketplace with their brown baby Jesus in tow.

Jesus’s eyes took in the traders from near and far.
His little nose filled with the scents of fruit, bread, and spices.
His face lit up at the sight of children threading colorful clay beads.

Just weeks before, Magi from the east had visited the family in Bethlehem, bringing gold, frankincense, and myrrh to honor Jesus as the king of the Jews.
