30s – Middle East
Few New Testament characters are as fascinating as Peter–a reluctant disciple who changed the face of Christianity. For more than twenty-five years, author and pastor Larry Huntsperger spent hundreds of hours studying New Testament documents in preparation for writing this fictional first-person account of the life of this enigmatic disciple.
The result is a novel that faithfully follows Scripture while offering a powerful, fresh narration of the story of one of the faith’s greatest men. In the fast-paced chapters of The Fisherman, readers will relive Peter’s initial resistance to the pull he feels toward Jesus and his ministry. They’ll walk with Peter alongside Jesus through the events of the Gospels and catch intimate glimpses of the disciples’ personalities. They’ll feel the dusty streets and the hot sun.
