About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Marcus and the Emperor's Coin (In God We Trust Series) by Dennis Conrad

Marcus and the Emperor's Coin (In God We Trust Series)

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?


Entertaining, educational, and inspirational. What more could you hope for when choosing a book for your children? Bright, colorful illustrations and an exciting plot are the attention-getters in this new children's book, but author Dennis Conrad doesn't stop there. Marcus and the Emperor's Coin is a delightful book with scripture, biblical truths, and an introduction to the joys of coin collecting. It's a great choice for both readers and nonreaders and a wonderful addition to home and church libraries.

I voluntarily accepted a digital copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
