Good Reads: Crossing the Waters by Leslie Leyland Fields

I feel like it has taken me FOREVER to get through this book. Buuuuuut...that's because it has. Crossing the Waters is a slow read for me, not really my style. The message of the book though is fabulous!

Written by Leslie Leyland Fields, Crossing the Waters paints a clear, real life picture of what it was to be a fisherman when Jesus called his disciples.

Packed with her own real life stories, Fields gives us a realistic look of what the fishermen experienced. As a fisher herself, Ms. Fields recalls stories of her own that bring her to reflect on the stories of Christ.

Beginning each chapter with a passage of scripture, having to do with being on the water, Leslie leads us to a deeper understanding of what was really happening in the midst of the story.

In the back of the book there is a study guide for going deeper with each chapter. It'd be a good, causal book to go through with a friend or two!

The words in Crossing the Waters are so beautiful and relatable. Associating everything with Christ, finding parallels with her every day and story, Leslie Leyland Fields does a phenomenal job of storytelling and sharing a much deeper message in the midst of it.

The book would have been a much easier read for myself, if the author would have used fewer words for her visuals, but that doesn't stop me from recommending the book. The message of the book is so clear and solid, I was definitely not disappointed with the read.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
