Fisherman's Apprentice (Paperback)
Written in a voice you would expect to hear from the guest speaker stepping up from your own congregation, this is a roller coaster of a book with one emotional gut punch after another with plenty of big, fuzzy bear hugs in between. Fisherman's Apprentice is so much more than just a cancer story. I was encouraged to be a better person, to journal, and to make the most of the time that's given to me, and I was challenged to follow Jesus even, or maybe even especially when it's uncomfortable to do so and to do hard things like find an accountability partner to hold myself to the standards I have set for myself and those that I have chosen to follow. It would have been so easy for Dan to turn this into a story about stage 4 melanoma, but instead this is a story of how God worked to change Dan's mindset and the story of how Dan learned to surrender to and trust God. This is the perfect book for anyone who wants to know whether or not there is more to this life.— Cam
Fisherman's Apprentice tells the inspiring true story of how God trained one stubborn fisherman to think and act more like a fisher of men. When the ride gets bumpy, the fisherman's prayer life kicks into high gear, but this is just the beginning. Financial ruin, a death sentence, and breaking the fisherman's will are all yet to come. The story is told with unflinching transparency that dares you to free the skeletons from your closet. The God-given lessons and tools in Fisherman's Apprentice are sure to inspire and prepare you so you'll be ready when the storms of life come.
I read this book over a couple of days and was so incredibly blessed I was inspired, entertained and convicted at times. Dan's story has inspired me to believe God for big things as a child of God and as a business woman. Dan writes from a very transparent place with such an honesty towards his struggles. However, throughout his story he continues to turn back to Jesus Christ. I have already started telling others to read this book and just bought a copy for my brother. Much love and appreciation to Dan. We can believe God for BIG things and He is faithful
