Marc and Amy's grandfather is a kind, elderly man who loves spending time with his grandchildren and telling them stories. Marc seems obsessed with battles and war, so grandpa offers to tell them about the biggest battle that's ever been fought. He brings out a special box, which is full of carvings that remind him about important points in the war, and begins to tell the story. Of course, the battle Grandpa is talking about is the one between God and Satan. As he takes out figures from his box and explains how the war has progressed, readers will see how different characters in the Bible played a part in battles and how God's plan of redemption can be seen throughout all Scripture, from the Fall to key Old and New Testament stories to Jesus rising from the dead. This book provides a very entertaining and thought-provoking way of retelling the Biblical story of redemption to kids. By Starr Meade, 286 pgs, pb.
