Description

The gospels are dramatic, wild, and wet-set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus' first disciples were ragtag fishermen, and Jesus' messages and miracles teem with water, fish, fishermen, net-breaking catches, sea crossings, boat-sinking storms, and even a walk on water. Because this world is foreign and distant to us, we've missed much about the disciples' experiences and about following Jesus-until now. Leslie Leyland Fields-a well-known writer, respected biblical exegete, and longtime Alaskan fisherwoman-crosses the waters of time and culture to take us out on the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament. You'll be swept up in a fresh experience of the gospels, traveling with the fishermen disciples from Jesus' baptism to the final miraculous catch of fish-and also experiencing Leslie's own efforts to follow Christ out on her own Alaskan sea. In a time when so many are 'unfollowing' Jesus and leaving the Church, Crossing the Waters delivers a fresh encounter with Jesus and explores what it means to 'come, follow me.'
