A Fisherman’s Tale by Denn Guptill - Large Print Edition
Large Print Edition
It was just another day at the beach— until it wasn’t.
Peter had fished the waters off Capernaum since childhood. He was the son of a fisherman, the son of a fisherman, who was the son of a fisherman.
He loved his life, and he loved his wife, and then one day everything changed.
Reluctantly allowing his brother Andrew to introduce him to another in a long line of possible Messiah, Peter is confronted with the question, “Are you content to spend your life catching fish or do you want to change the world?”
This is his story.
I’ve always wondered what the Jesus story looked like through Peter’s eyes, so I’ve decided to try telling it from the fisherman’s view.
From my first reading of the Gospels, Peter was the Apostle that I identified with the most. A fisherman called to become a Fisher of Men. Impulsive, speaking before he thinks, and besides, I've always pictured him with a beard.
Calling it the Gospel According to Peter seemed a bit presumptuous, so I settled on A Fisherman’s Tale.
