    Peter's explanation of what happened.

    I didn't know what I was purchasing when I first opened this book. But from page one to page 253 I have never been more immersed into a story as this. Larry Sperger takes the reader on a spiritual journey the likes of which one can only imagine. THE FISHERMAN places Jesus Christ on a level that everyone can relate to, to laugh with, to love. I can only offer up my humble thanks for this novel. As an aside comment, wouldn't it be fantastic to have someone read Rev. Sperger's novel as a one man act? How more effective it might be for someone to play the part of Peter. Something on the order of the current 'Thomas Jefferson.'

    Informative

    When I first picked up this book, I thought just maybe this would be an okay book just to pass the time. As I read the book, I did not want to put it down. For those of you who don't know much or anything about Peter, this book is for you. The story is written so you feel like you are there also with Jesus.

    He's got it!!

    Sometimes I wince when someone asks me to read a novel based on a Biblical character. I winced when I was given this one. No more. You are going to love this book! Not only that, you are also going to read the Biblical accounts of Peter and the words of Peter in the Bible with fresh insight and depth. This is a case when a "sanctified imagination" has become a gift to Christians who love Peter and, even more, love the One he followed and worshiped.

    I found this book to be truly inspiring for any Christian and anyone with curiousity about the faith. The Publisher's Weekly reviewer obviously wasn't reading it with any spirituality at all. I was moved to tears by the voice of humanity in Peter's journey to self-understanding and his eventual true spiritual conversion. I highly recommend this book.
