The book The God Contest: The True Story of Elijah, Jesus, and the Greatest Victory invites young school-age children to learn about the prophet Elijah and his contest with the prophets of Baal—which ended in victory. The author uses this engaging story to fast-forward to another victory—Jesus’ victory over sin and death on the cross.
Young children will enjoy the bright, colorful illustrations and the charming, energetic characters that bring this ancient story (from 1 Kings 18:16-40) to life. Using language kids will easily understand, the author tells how Team Baal frantically gives their best effort against Team Yahweh at Mount Carmel. The God Contest then leaps forward several centuries to the final God contest and Jesus’ ultimate victory on Mount Zion. In both contests, not everyone liked the results, and some who’d initially rallied around the victorious hero quickly lost interest. It’s a poignant reminder of how easily some reject the Gospel or gradually turn from faith.
