National Jewish Book Awards Winner 2006. The cover illustration depicts a plaintive white ram in midleap, bounding out of paradise on his way to his mission of self-sacrifice. That sad-eyed, heroic ram spoke to me from between the loving hands of God, who made him on the last day of the Creation, in the twilight of the first Sabbath. And there he is again, on the book’s opening page, nestled within God’s hands, floating above the newly created world, waiting for his moment.

Purchased for a kindergartner who first borrowed the title from the public library and wished to have a copy in the family library. The illustrations are captivating. The story is appropriate for all ages, though I would expect it is most meaningful to small children.

This is such a beautiful story. Great allegory for Jesus, although I know that's not the intent. I can't read it out loud without crying.
Gavirgas
Too much faulty theology. I really wanted to like it, but just can't.

This is one of those rare children's books you'll keep no matter how old you and your children get. The illustrations are beautiful. Rarely is God depicted visibly with such sensitivity (can you see the the subtle form of His hands in the clouds on the cover?) The devil looks evil but is unlikely to scare little ones. The story of a ram eager to provide a substitionary sacrifice could not be more precious.

I had the privilege to meet the author at a writer's conference. Mr. Gerstein spoke on his desire to illustrate God for children without making an image of Him. He has succeeded as no other children's author I've seen, with imagination, faithfulness, and beauty.

This was a gift to a family with 7 children. They all loved it.

Our family loves this story! Reinforces the need to be alert to tricky ways, but take heart, God has a plan.

Wonderful book! Delightful story line! I highly recommend it.
One of the most difficult stories in the Bible is that of Abraham and Isaac (Genesis 22). The tale is familiar to Christians, Jews, and Muslims, and people of faith have wrestled for thousands of years with how God could ask a man to kill his son. Isaac was spared, of course, once Abraham demonstrated his willingness to obey God in all things, and God then provided a ram as a substitute sacrifice.
This complex tale seems an unlikely subject for a picture book. Yet author-illustrator Gerstein has crafted a beautiful and reverent presentation. His narrative is based on a Jewish Midrash, or legend about the Old Testament story. This version begins on the last day of Creation, when God makes a white ram, places him in the garden of Eden, and says, "Wait here until I call you."
Through the ages, the ram waits patiently until God says, "Today is the day." And then the little ram runs out of the garden, over rocky mountains, across thirsty deserts, through dark swamps and tangled jungles, resisting the temptations of "the evil one" who tries to stop him. The ram's death is delicately handled: no blood, only the ram's soul leaping joyfully into God's hands. The story doesn't end here, however, but allows Abraham to question God and recounts the many blessings that followed because of his--and the ram's--faithfulness.
Gerstein, a Caldecott Award winning artist, used pen and ink, oil paint, and colored pencil to create amazing art: childlike in its apparent simplicity yet with a subtle sophistication that rewards close study. Each page turn reveals new wonders. The devil appears in several guises, tempting and menacing at the same time. According to Jewish tradition, God may not be pictured, so the artist has instead used the empty spaces between the clouds in the sky to suggest images of His hands and even His face.
Faithful to the Bible text, this account cannot avoid the distressing fact that Abraham was prepared to kill his own son. This may well raise uncomfortable questions for the child who has never heard the original story. A child already familiar with Genesis, on the other hand, will cherish The White Ram not only for its unforgettable illustrations but for its affirmative emphasis on promises kept and hope fulfilled.
