LOST …… Two Ways Posted on June 1, 2012

THE FOURTH FISHERMAN by Joe Kissack gives a great insight into how being lost at sea and lost in the midst of having it all can provide a common background in an incredible story.

Joe Kissack had it all. The home, the cars, the finances, the beautiful wife, the trappings of luxury and yet he had nothing. Seeking for the approval of his father, it still was not enough. Five fishermen from various parts of Mexico start off to earn their living in a small fiberglass boat, leaving from the west coast of Mexico.

Joe Kissack had everything a person could want. The fishermen had a boat, a net and a Bible. Joe’s journey was perhaps longer in duration than that of the fishermen. The fisherman’s journey took them thousands of miles after a storm hit and they lost everything but the boat and the Bible. God was with the men in the boat. Joe was seeking for something and that something was God. Lost in the middle of the Pacific ocean or lost in the middle of all that most people strive for, but totally lost. One was hopeful and one had no hope. The fishermen who had nothing held on to hope while the one who had it all had nothing to hold onto.

Ten months at sea with only a Bible. A lifetime in the world with everything the world counts as valuable.

This story draws us into the lives of each of these characters. What is really valuable? What really matters?

This book is excellent. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is caught up in the corporate ladder climbing effort to be rewarded. It is an easy read. I received this book from the publisher, Waterbrook Press.
