The Gospels are dramatic and incredibly wet, set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Yet we've missed much of this perspective - until now. Leslie Leyland Fields, a seasoned Alaskan fisherwoman, leads us across the waters of time and culture out onto the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament beside the ragtag fishermen disciples. Her own story and her fresh insights will challenge your understanding of Jesus and what it means to "come, follow me".

Inspiring and insightful, one of the best books...
I've read in years. I've just finished my third time through, listening to it for fifteen minutes each night before I go to sleep.
I purchased this in the spring while looking for a book about the Galilee of Jesus' day and found it to be so much more than I expected. It's not just that it's written by a woman, although her combination of personal experience in the Pacific waters off Alaska and walking and fishing in Galilee are to the point. It's also that it's more of an extended reflection, not teaching or preaching. Her experience as a fisherman: when she talks about the passion that fishermen have for their work and the complete unlikeliness of Jesus' first followers to leave their nets, she brings her points home with insight, born of thirty years personal experience and her profound faith.
The narration is excellent, and it adds much to the book. I recommend it highly.
