Away on a Hilltop
The Continuing Story of the Manger Baby
Away on a Hilltop starts in the manger and follows the footsteps of Jesus Christ all the way through His life. Beginning at His humble birth, it moves to His upbringing as a carpenter; learning at twelve in the temple; His baptism by John the Baptist, and beyond.
From there, Away on a Hilltop follows His life into the wilderness for His temptation, all the way to the upper room, the garden of Gethsemane, His trial, death and of course – His resurrection!
The story closes with a tender prayer to this wonderful Savior who came to our world to wash our sins away.

Sample of the pages that follow:
Away in the temple, discussing God’s Word,
the twelve-year old Jesus amazed all who heard.
His parents stood watching with tears in their eyes.
The twelve-year old Jesus was thoughtful and wise.
Away in the wilderness, hungry and thin,
The holy Lord Jesus resisted all sin.
The evil one offered Him riches and bread.
The holy Lord Jesus chose God’s way instead.
Near the end:
Away in a graveyard of sorrow and gloom,
the broken Lord Jesus lay wrapped in a tomb.
When women came weeping with perfume and prayer,
The body of Jesus was no longer there!
