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.
