The God Contest: The True Story of Elijah, Jesus, and the Greatest Victory
(The Good Book Company Jan. 1, 2021)
Teach children about two extraordinary events in history when the God of the Bible proved himself to be the one true God.
Kids today are faced with a huge range of different views on who God is (or isnt). How can they be sure whos got it right?
This beautifully illustrated hardback storybook for children aged 3-6 is written by the team behind The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross. It retells two extraordinary events in history when the God of the Bible proved himself to be the one true God.
First it takes children back to Elijahs time and the gripping God contest between the God of the Bible, Yahweh, and the false god Baal. Then it fast-forwards to a different mountain and another God contest at an empty tomb.
Once the evidence is examined, it invites kids, in a world of so many options, to decide with confidence to join Team Jesus.
