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.”

"This book is a rare gift.  It pulses with story and theology, with lived suffering and quiet joy, with vast mysteries and a strong Savior.  The question is not whether you can put it down--because that will be hard--but whether you have the good sense first to pick it up, and read."
---MARK GALLI, Editor in chief, Christianity Today

"The disciples could often be found battling rough seas, storms, and empty nets.  As an Alaskan fisherman for nearly four decades, Leslie Leyland Fields brings unique insight to the disciples' experiences with Jesus--and how we, too, can learn to trust and follow the Savior."
President of Focus on the Family
