Crossing the Waters - Leslie Leyland Fileds

Following Jesus through the storms, the fish, the doubt, and the seas.  The author takes us into a world that most of us know just about nothing about. She has been a commercial fisher woman for four decades, and works with her husband and six children in a salmon-fishing operation on their own island off the coast of Kodiak Island, Alaska. It may sound glamorous to some, but she describes the hard work, dangers and uncertainty that they face every day. Relating her vocation with Jesus's call to his disciples to be "fishers of men" this book is full of analogies to fishing. The author has written ten other books and is a speaker and a popular radio guest. This book comes with recommendations from Jim Daly from Focus on the Family and Mark Galli, Editor of Christianity Today.
Some may find it hard to relate to the stories that she tells on her fishing journeys, but we can all relate to how Jesus can bring us through any storm.
I have received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.
