Author: Dennis Conrad

Genre: Christian Children’s Picture Book

Marcus and the Emperor’s Coin is an exciting adventure in the Ancient Roman Empire at the time of Christ. Eight-year-old Marcus and his father are on a mission for the Emperor and visit a mine and a mint where coins are made. Marcus himself makes a denarius, a coin with the emperor’s image.

Marcus goes to Jerusalem where he sees Jesus hold a denarius saying, “Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” What will seeing Jesus mean for Marcus, and will he ever be the same again?

My Reviews

This was a cute book for kids! I listened to the audiobook which was short enough that it would be a good listen while in the car with the kiddos. The plot was cute and easy to follow and the characters were very likable.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
