The Monica Swanson Podcast

Jan 5, 2021

Carl Laferton, best-selling author of The Garden, the Curtain, and the Cross, joins us today to talk about his brand-new book, The God Contest.  I have such passion for this topic because my four sons’ early years were impacted so deeply by good stories.  Bible stories, stories about heroes of the faith, and other creative, even silly stories -- shaped my boys’ character, faith, and interests.  This new book by Carl Laferton tells the story of Elijah up against the prophets of Baal up on Mt. Carmel (see 1 Kings 18.)  It is an exciting, humorous, and profoundly faith-building story that will inspire our kids to put their faith in the One True God.  Carl and I not only get to talk about this particular story, but Carl reminds us of the importance of helping our kids build their own faith based on the Word of God and equipping them to respond to questions about their faith.  I love this chat so much and I think you will too!
