The Eye Of God: A Fisherman's Tale
Before Jesus taught him to become a fisher of man, Simon or Peter as he is better known, was a simple fisherman. His life has been a series of disasters, of beginnings and bad endings, of high hope and bitter disappointment.
Newlywed and anticipating the birth of his son, Simon Peter thought that nothing could go wrong in his life. However, the joyous arrival of that son, Mark, was marred by sorrow—just one of the many that he would experience as he recognized his calling to become one of the chosen twelve Apostles of Jesus.
When Simon turned his back on everything to follow Jesus, he was renamed “Peter,” the rock on which Jesus would build his Church. In The Eye of God, Marilyn Huntman Giese paints a more human picture of Peter, one who also has doubts, fears and makes mistakes. Yet she has retained Peter’s strong and faithful character which made him a fitting leader for the Christians.
Follow Peter’s journey before his encounter with Jesus, their many travels together and what transpired after Jesus’ death. Get a glimpse of imaginative possibilities of what happened to the other Apostles.
