The Fourth Fisherman by Joe Kissack (Chapter 1 Excerpt)

The Fourth Fisherman by Joe Kissack (Chapter 1 Excerpt)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,569|Likes:
Two true stories of being lost-intersect at faith—three fishermen stranded at sea and a Hollywood executive adrift in the brokenness of his life—when God provides miraculous outcomes with timely rescues.

It was the subject of headlines around the world: Three Mexican fishermen in a small open boat without any supplies, drifting for more than nine months and 5,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean. Through blistering sun and threatening storms, they battle starvation, dehydration, hopelessness, and death. Their lifelines? An unwavering faith and a tattered Bible.

Thousands of miles away, Joe Kissack, a successful Hollywood executive, personified the American dream. He enjoyed the trappings of the good life: a mini mansion, sports cars, and more. He had it made. Yet the intense pressure of his driven and high-powered career sends him into a downward spiral, driving him deep into suicidal depression, insidious addictions, and alienation from his family. His lifelines? A friend and a Bible on the table between them.

Thoughtfully told with candor and humor, Kissack weaves together the incredible true voyage of fishermen adrift in the sea and his own life’s journey as a man lost in the world. It is a story that will buoy your spirit and renew your hope and faith.
