Publisher's Description

Few New Testament characters are as fascinating as Simon Barjona, the man called Peter-a reluctant disciple who changed the face of Christianity. For more than twenty-five years, author and pastor Larry Huntsperger has 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 Christianity'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 even "feel" the dust on the roads as familiar stories are transformed into original, spellbinding accounts from Peter's life.
This fascinating novel will help readers "to see the Master as a man. For, if we cannot see him correctly as man, we have no hope of understanding him correctly as our God."

Author Bio

Larry Huntsperger and his wife, Sandee, live in Soldotna, Alaska, where he writes and pastors at Peninsula Bible Fellowship. He is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University and has studied with Francis A. Schaeffer at the L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. Huntsperger is the author of the nonfiction book, The Grace Exchange. This is his first novel.

    The Fisherman is the telling of Jesus ministry from the four gospels from Peters point of view.

    The thing that I enjoyed most about this book was the fact that the author gave Peter, thoughts & emotions that everyone can understand & relate to. When you read in the gospels its very easy to overlook how Peter relates to Jesus, but in this book we also see stories & parables that are familiar to us, but the author adds some details that are from Peters point of view that for some readers will help round them out. I would like to point out that the author does not change any words of the gospels, but presents Peters point of view as a separate part of the story.

    It was a different type of book, a style that Im not very familiar with so maybe thats why it peaked by interest and why I enjoyed the book so much.

    I have and will highly recommend this book. It puts flesh around the story of Peter and Jesus as well. It makes them more real and not only allows but encourages intimacy in relationship!

    Nice retelling of Peter's story with added emphasis on Peters feelings as he went through life as portrayed in the Bible. Other than the expansion of Peter's emotions it was little more than retelling the story from the Bible. I'm glad it was not unduly embellished. There were several times the author gave good insight into Peter's actions which broadened my biblical understanding, but I wish there had been more.

    Pastor Huntsperger's narrative flows thoughtfully without a ripple! He offers a valuable perspective for those who care to empathize with the struggles non-Christians may wrestle with as they initially experience our Lord. He also provides in this novel valuable, practical insights to help evangelize to children as well as adults. I believe this is highly appropriate reading for teens and early adults. In fact I have purchased several copies to share.

    This book gave me much more insight to the apostle Peter. He was so human with all our flaws and short-comings. I really hadn't thought much about his personal and private life. Even though it is a novel it gives much food for thought. I enjoyed this book immensely!
