Kids today are faced with a huge range of different views on who God is (or isn't). How can they be sure who's got it right?
This beautifully illustrated hardback storybook for children aged 3-6 is written by the team behind The Garden, the Curtain & 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 Elijah's 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.

When it comes to telling kids how wonderful, powerful and real God is, my
friend Carl takes the prize—and he does it with words that sing and shine the truth. Even the whimsical illustrations grip the imagination! The God Contest will indelibly impress the timeless story of Elijah on Mt. Carmel upon the heart of every young reader. I love this book, and I give it a double thumbs-up!

Good children’s books are easy for everyone to understand. The best children’s books leave everyone (the reader and the one being read to) in awe. That’s what The God Contest does. It’s not just the truth that shines through; it’s the beauty. This is how we cultivate the seeds of faith in the soil of our children’s hearts.

Superb storytelling, fantastic illustrations, and a message every parent will
want their kids to hear. I’m not sure who will love it more—your kids hearing it, or you reading it to them!
Author, Missional Motherhood and Labor With Hope
A child’s experience in seasons of uncertainty may differ than that of an adult,
though we all need to rest in the same assurance: Christ is victorious. The God
Contest serves all of us in these beautifully illustrated and faithfully retold accounts
of how God demonstrates his mighty power for his glory and our eternal good.
