What if Samson had a son? What if he inherited his father's famed strength? What if he grew up among the pagans instead of within Israel, but embraced his father's faith? Branan's story answers these questions and more, all the while recounting the exploits of perhaps the most famous judge of Israel. Branan is intrigued by the stories about the father he has never known, and so he is searching out the old cities, friends and family who experienced part of the prolific strongman's tragedies and triumphs. How much of it is true? What does it mean for Branan? And what of the enemies that his father made during his life - enemies who may still hold a grudge? Branan is in for the lesson of his life during his quest to uncover the truth behind the legend of Samson, Judge of God! Recommend ed for ages 11 to 13.
There's Nothing Like a Jawbone---or Melons and Tree Trunks---When It Comes to a Fight! When things get physical, Branan uses any weapon he can grab---just like his father, Samson. And like his dad, he can wield weapons other men can't even lift. Trouble is, he's not sure why God gave him such great power or what he's supposed to do with it. Trying to understand his father---and himself---Branan travels to the places where Samson did his amazing deeds. Along the way he performs some incredible heroics of his own, stirring up the anger of his dad's old enemies.
