Product Description

The story was in headlines across the world. In 2005, three Mexican fishermen were cast adrift 5,500 miles across the Pacific in their disabled boat. For nine months, they survived on raw fish, rainwater, and hope-filled passages from their Bible. Across the ocean, Hollywood producer Joe Kissack was drifting as well, but no headlines anounced his downward spiral into depression and substance abuse. From the outside Joe's life looked like an American success story complete with sports cars, a mini-mansion, and large salary. But on the inside addiction and anxiety were eating him alive. As he hit bottom he turned to the Bible and the God who'd been seeking him all along. In The Fourth Fisherman, discover how two stories from opposite shores intersect in a stunning saga of physical and spiritual salvation.

Publisher's Description

We each came to a moment of brokenness;
what we found there was God.
And he was enough.
 
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.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Fourth Fisherman

"Faith and hope unite the unlikely stories of Mexican fishermen lost at sea and an American television executive even more profoundly lost in his affluence. You’ll be inspired by this passionate tale of intertwined lives, touched by the author’s unvarnished honesty, and challenged to trust God in fresh ways. Here’s an adventure story that may well launch you on your own new adventures with God."
—Lee Strobel, New York Times best-selling author

"We love this message. Joe weaves together two stories with the same central theme, being lost and adrift, and tells how one thing—faith in God—provided each of the four fishermen the courage and comfort to face the next day and its uncertainties and ultimately led them safely to shore. These are the stories that we hold tight in our memories—when days seem so uncertain and doubts scream at us that we’ll never find the shore."
—Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn, best-selling authors of For Women Only and For Men Only

"This book is about the fishermen’s agony and survival, or at least that’s where Joe begins. But the real book, the inner story, shows readers how God took a once high-powered salesman who was obsessed with success and image and turned him into a new man: a dedicated husband and a serious, committed Christian."
—Cecil Murphey, New York Times best-selling coauthor of 90 Minutes in Heaven

"People of faith, myself included, often put limitations on it. But, as you’ll read here, real freedom comes when we finally surrender to the mystery of God and what He is doing. Thank you, Joe, for being so honest and real. I loved it!"
—Jeff Foxworthy, stand-up comedian and television personality

"You won’t be able to put this book down. It is more than the true story of three courageous fishermen and one brave author. Believe it or not, hidden within their inspiring stories is your story. It is the belief that life is bigger than we think. It is the hope of wanting our lives to have purpose. It’s all there. If you’re looking to find that hope, a common purpose, and a reason to still believe, you’ve come to the right place. But be warned. The journey begins when you board this boat."
—Jeff Henderson, North Point Ministries

"Joe is an ordinary guy who has been given an extraordinary story. He answered a call that few will ever get a chance to say yes to. I wish it could have been me."
—Steve Bartkowski, NFL legend, outdoorsman, and motivational speaker
