Shepherds were dirty and stinky and poor. They were lowly.
But God doesn't care what we look like.
Or how old we are.
Or where we're from.
Or how much money we have.
He loves us no matter what.
Which is why a lowly shepherd and his low sheep, on a low hill, in a lowly town, on the very first Christmas, were the first to be in line to meet the savior of the world.
And then the lowly shepherd got to tell everybody else.
Based on the pilot episode of the groundbreaking TV show, The Chosen, this book will provide little readers with a new experience of the Christmas story from the perspective of the shepherds. Like them, we've been chosen by God to be part of the greatest story ever told.
