In Ten-Gallon Sam and the Perilous Mine, you'll meet Sam, a man with extraordinary strength. As a baby, he was given a white hat from the White Rider, and as long as he's wearing that hat, he's stronger than anyone alive. One day, the White Rider gives Sam a task--a crooked banker named Phil is trying to cheat the people of Promise and steal their farms. Sam saves the day, but Phil is not happy and plans his revenge. Sam lets his victory go to his head, and Phil uses his niece Delilah to learn the secret of Sam's strength.
Based on the Bible story of Samson in Judges 13-16, Sam learns that sometimes the greatest enemy we can face is our own prideful heart. At the end of the book, the "Ponderin' Points" help children think about their strengths and how they can use them for God. You'll also find a short devotional and instructions on how to build a ten-gallon hat! Recommended for ages 6 to 10.

Sarah Hayes5 Stars Out Of 5June 11, 2010Sarah HayesThis was a fantasic book, very well written and entertaining. A great way to introduce children to an important lesson from the Bible. We read our Bible after the book to really bring home the message and it was wonderful! I hope the author writes more of these!

What a great way to bring God's stories and principles into the lives of our children. The illustrations are lively, and the parallels to the actual Bible stories are clear and clever. The books are just plain fun, and create an excellent opportunity to talk about Biblical principles. I'm so glad to see something fresh in the area of tools to bring God into kid's lives...I'll be watching the Miller Brothers! God bless them!
