The Great Victor is an award-winning epic tale that illustrates the Gospel for the whole family. After betraying his King, Adam finds himself enslaved in the Dark Kingdom, a land full of violence ruled by the tyrant Malus. When a stranger enters the Dark Kingdom with the message that the King still loves Adam and wants to free him from the rule of Malus, Adam must decide if he will risk following the stranger to either freedom or death. Is the good King’s love truly powerful enough to free him from the grip of Malus?
In The Great Victor, Manuel Becker has retrieved the historic gospel as ‘eucatastrophe’–the good news of the Savior’s grand victory. Beautiful echoes of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien’s good-news storytelling that will ignite children’s imaginations with eternal truth.”
Bradley Jersak (Ph.D. Theology), author of Children, Can You Hear Me? and A More Christlike God
“A great introduction for children to the God of the gospel. A wholesome and life-shaping good-news story, charmingly illustrated.”
