Behold The Lamb Of God 2-CD Set
This special 2-Disc 10th Anniversary Edition includes the complete Behold the Lamb Of God concert recorded live on the 2008 tour, as well as a newly remastered version of the original 2004 studio recording.
As of 2009, Andrew and his friends have told the story of the coming of Christ in this way for ten years, so they decided to celebrate the milestone with something special. The first disc features the most excellent 2008 live band, which included Bebo Norman, Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Andrew Osenga, Ben Shive, Gabe Scott, Cason Cooley, Todd Bragg, and Garret Buell. Disc two features a remastered, improved version of the original album. All that, plus a stunning new piece of cover art by Evie Coates, commissioned especially for this project.

Comments & Reviews
I LOVE THIS ALBUM!
I was excited when I heard that Andrew was about to release a remastered, 2-disc edition of BTLOG, but a little surprised. After all, isn’t releasing “remastered” albums supposed to be for bands like the Beatles, or greedy record labels trying to milk more money out of fans who already own the songs? I was pleasantly surprised to find that in this case, I was wrong. I’ll be honest–aside from a couple small touches here and there, like the percussion on the opening track, I can’t hear a whole lot of difference between the old studio version and the new version. (To be fair, though, I didn’t listen to both of them side by side to compare.) The studio album is great in either version, though, and anyone who likes good music, especially good music that tells the good news, needs this album in their collection. The second disc is what makes this collection stand out for me. I love the spoken word intro by Andrew, it really sets the stage. The show has a lot of energy, too, and is now my default BTLOG listening choice. I love the small touches, like the fun, singalong version of Matthew’s Begats and the cool little electric guitar riff that comes right before “…and Isaiah said,” in So Long, Moses.” For what it’s worth, I like this performance better than the dvd version, too. The live concert makes this one a great value.
In the movie version of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Mr. Tumnus recalls the times in Narnia before the winter. His words with passion were “Music, such music!” Those are the words that hit me every time I hear this album and go to this concert. And now with both a remaster and a live edition, it sounds even better than ever. If you were like me and already owned the original, trust me, it’s worth it to purchase this. You’re getting more than an album - you’re getting the greatest story ever told, the story of the great Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
my favorite Christmas album of all time. This is the only holistic Christmas album i’ve ever found, too - the whole story of the Bible is summarized in these tracks, because it takes the whole Bible to speak of Jesus properly! Accordingly, you can listen to this album all through the year, in anticipation for that short window after Thanksgiving when “Christmas music” is appropriate :-)
The live version provides a different feel and nuance to the original version that really adds to the listening experience. There is so much energy and passion in the live recording that is missed by the studio version.
For the remastered version, you really can hear a difference, starting with the first drum beats. It’s such a great album, I listen to it all year long!
Wow, wow, wow. The live version is incredible, and I can’t wait to hear the remastered version of one of my favorite albums!
This is going to make a great Christmas present for alot of folks on my list! I’m listening right now to the live download. It’s awesome! If this were on itunes, I’d give it 5 stars!
If I could only choose two CD’s to listen to for all eternity, these would undoubtedly be the two.
