Marcus and the Emperor's Coin

Dennis Conrad

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 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?
