The Fourth Fisherman By Joe Kissack

This is true story about Joe Kissack, living the American dream as a big Hollywood executive, and 5 Mexican fishermen just trying to make a dollar, living a simple, quiet life. This is about two completely different worlds coming together in a most unusual, life-changing, spiritual way.
Joes is living a very comfortable life in Hollywood, in charge of striking very lucrative television deals, such as signing on Seinfeld, Mad About You, and Walker, Texas Ranger, to name a few. He has the beautiful home, beautiful wife, and two amazing kids. Life is good for Joe...until all his success, vacations, and beautiful things just aren't satisfying him anymore. Joe starts his downward spiral that will send him on a life-changing adventure.
Across the border in a tiny town in Mexico, five fisherman set out on the ocean for a few days of fishing. Their family's lives depend on them catching enough fish to sell to be able to eat for the rest of the week. They set sail with enough food for 4 days, a few clothing items, blankets, a knife, and their bible. Little do they know these are the only items they will have for the next nine months.
Joe Kissack details the lives of these five fishermen, and himself, worlds apart, fighting for their lives. They exude courage, strength, and most of all; their faith in God are what keeps the fishermen going. Thru all of Joe's addictions, searching, and failure, he finally has enough and crawls into bed, praying for death. Something happened that night to Joe and thru God's amazing grace, Joe wakes up a new man. God stretched out his Big, Loving, Holy Hand, and caught Joe. Joe learns to listen to God, trust Him, and when God tells him to do something--don't question it and don't fight it...because God can and will show you how serious He is-- sometimes with butterflies.
Together with God, these fishermen of faith, unbeknownst to them, change Joe's life and save his marriage. And the fisherman--God taught them a little something too!
This is an amazing book of God rescuing broken men, intertwining their lives, learning from each other, and bringing them back to the men He created them to be.
