Item description for The Legend of Gid the Kid and the Black Bean Bandits (Heroes Of Promise) by Christopher Miller & Allan Miller...

As the first book in the Heroes of Promise series, Gid the Kid and the Black Bean Bandits introduces children to the concept of trusting God and dealing with bullies. Based on the story of Gideon, found in Judges 5: 11-7: 25, Gid the Kid teaches a valuable lesson about standing up for what's right even when it isn't easy. In this story, Gid learns that the West can get a little wild, not because of people who do wrong, but because of good people who don't stand up for what's right.

Reviews - What do customers think about Legend Of Gid The Kid & Black Bean Bandits?

Fresh, funky and fun  Sep 4, 2008
My son picked this out of a bookstore and loves it. I had to read it 3 times to both of my boys the first night. It retells the Biblical story of Gideon and having trust in God.

The graphics and fun and keep the kids tuned in (including my 3 year old) and the story line is a blast to read. It's written in rhyme with a nice beat. The last page includes questions for the kids to help them think more of the story, a recipe for black bean chili (featured in the story) and a game that mentions that there are 24 geckos hiding among the pages in the story (which also keeps the kids attention).

My kids love the western theme to this and let's face it, it's a easy accent to do for voices. I can't say enough good things about the book and hope they keep coming out with more. In fact, I'm purchasing the other one right now.
My 3 1/2 year old LOVES this book!  Mar 16, 2008
I saw this book in a bible book store and got it for my 3 1/2 year old. This is a wonderful way to "cowboy-up" a lesson out of the bible. We can't wait to get the rest of the series!
Great Book  Jan 31, 2008
This is such a great retelling of the Biblical strory of Gideon. The book has amazing artwork and great writing. It takes place in the American "Old West" and is very action packed. The pictures have so much going on in the background and my boys just love to point out things they recognize. A great moral story for kids to learn from and told in a fun and exciting way. Great for fans that love bible stories told in a different way( i.e Veggie Tales). NOt just for kids either.
Amazing book with Amazing graphics!  Jan 30, 2008
I just wanted to say that I thought this was one of the best children's books that I have seen and read in a long time. All the way from the story line to the Graphics. It looks like it came from a movie! Pixar style! Anyway...It keeps straight to the facts of the story in the bible even though it has the western twist to it. All of my little brothers and sisters enjoy reading it and want to read it over and over again. GO MILLER BROTHERS!!!
Fun Take on the Story of Gideon for all ages!  Nov 28, 2007
This is a wonderful book and would make a great gift for special kids in your life. Our three-year-old girl loves it and wants us to read it over and over. This is a great retelling of the story of Gideon. The western theme is fun, the illustrations are top notch and the moral is to not allow fear to stand in the way of doing what is right. I highly recommend this!
