Get ready for the wettest, stormiest, wildest trip through the Gospel you’ve ever taken!
The gospels are dramatic, wild, and wet?set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus’ first disciples were ragtag fishermen, and Jesus’ messages and miracles teem with water, fish, fishermen, net-breaking catches, sea crossings, boat-sinking storms, and even a walk on water. Because this world is foreign and distant to us, we’ve missed much about the disciples’ experiences and about following Jesus?until now. Leslie Leyland Fields?a well-known writer, respected biblical exegete, and longtime Alaskan fisherwoman?crosses the waters of time and culture to take us out on the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament.
